The goal of this use case is to optimize transportation spend by choosing the optimal mode and routing, thereby saving significant costs and improving resource utilization.
Enterprise hardware, cloud applications, routing optimization software, and transportation management systems (TMS)
Use Case Summary
Through the use of complex algorithms, defined business rules, and transportation and equipment constraints, planners and transportation managers can develop consolidation opportunities, improve mode selection, and utilize transportation optimization strategies such as pooling, zone skipping, shipment consolidation, and milk runs.
