Dock Doors or Loading Platforms

An external system supplies the locations configured in the external system where equipment loading and unloading events take place. For some systems, the locations are called dock doors and other systems refer to them as loading platforms. The dock doors or loading platforms must be provided by the system integrated to YMS to synchronize the names of those locations in both systems. Loading platforms are used to load and unload equipment.

Typically, the list of Dock Doors or Loading Platforms are shown based on the location type that are configured as load or unload capable locations. In YMS, you are not required to include DOOR in the naming of the location. The YMS Facility Loading Platform page is a filtered location page where only the loading and unloading locations are displayed.
