Features/Functions

Create Plans With Any Routing Option

  • Optimize multi-pick, multi-drop and continuous moves
  • Explore backhaul opportunities
  • Consider LTL consolidation
  • Create “Milk Run” style of routing
  • Utilize dynamic pooling options
    • Select if less expensive than direct
    • Force the load through a pool point
    • Use a pre-assigned pool location
    • Select the nearest to origin/destination
    • Select the “best” pool point
  • Parcel zone skipping
  • Optimize containers for ocean and air schedules

Parameter Driven Analysis considers:

  • All modes
    • (TL, LTL, rail, air, ocean, parcel, intermodal)
  • Air, ocean and rail schedules
  • Max-out-of-route and cluster strategies
  • Reverse stop constraints
  • Continuous move stop restrictions
  • Equipment constraints and driver duty limits
  • Pick-up & delivery windows
  • Hours of operation limits
  • Dock schedules and availability
  • Vehicle capacity and transit times
  • Average ground speed
  • Time to service stops
  • Vehicle loading method (i.e., reverse stop)
  • Pool point hold time
  • Fuel surcharge attributes

Quantify the Impact of Optimization Parameter Changes

  • Compare summary of result sets anywhere in the world
