Transportation Optimization for Everyone
Are you doing all you can to develop efficient load and route plans?
The transportation industry has seen many changes in recent years. Shipping processes have become increasingly complicated as a result of more organizations doing business globally, online shopping, and growing customer expectations for fast (and inexpensive or even free) delivery. Transportation Management Systems (TMS) have replaced spreadsheets and manual processes for many companies, but is it enough? A TMS certainly provides an advantage in examining and understanding your shipping processes. With a TMS, all your transportation data is in one location making it easier to see trends and issues.
While a growing number of organizations have embraced technology to manage their transportation strategies, it can still be challenging to develop efficient load and route plans. That’s where optimization comes in. While transportation optimization software used to be “nice to have,” managing transportation in today’s complex environment requires going beyond the status quo. Yet many businesses continue to think optimization is too complicated or only for the largest shipping requirements. By using route optimization software, you will be able to look at freight movements holistically, analyze your shipments, rates, and constraints, and improve your decision making.
