Freight consolidation—aggregate, optimize, consolidate

Transportation Planning provides powerful capabilities for analyzing orders to be shipped based on origin and destination locations, required ship dates, and service levels and consolidating those orders into loads. Then, it will determine the best way to move those loads via line haul common carriage, private fleet, or multi-stop truckloads based on constraints such as delivery dates and costs.

Shipments can be pooled at a central location in order to create larger shipments suitable for truckloads or rail carloads.

Fleet management—increase operating efficiency

With Transportation Planning, we can help clients create optimal daily or multi-period vehicle routes and schedules. The solution also offers support for “what-if” tactical transportation planning including the best fleet design and carrier capacity.

Inbound and outbound integration—savings opportunities

Using Transportation Planning, we can help clients coordinate purchasing and scheduling of supplier-to plant inbound shipments with the outbound distribution of goods. This unification of inbound and outbound movements increases resource utilization and lowers transportation costs.
