Understand the total picture when it comes to environmental impact by utilizing relevant data and metrics to create benchmarks. This enables numerous sustainability improvements by making the most of every mile, from the first through the last.
Efficient routing can not only eliminate empty miles, but also minimize backtracking. This is especially prevalent in final mile delivery where re-routing is constant due to new order or return pickups. Using street-level dynamic re-routing in the TMS can greatly reduce mileage caused by poor route planning.
Avoid additional costs and carbon impact by filling empty miles and unnecessary idling. Digital freight matching capabilities can find loads for available trucks to prevent running empty, and load planning functions can maximize space utilization in containers and trailers to reduce the number of shipments.
Whether it’s mismanaged time, overconsumption of fuel, or too many miles being logged for a shipment, getting ahead of waste helps you maximize the efficiency of every touchpoint. Advanced visibility tools available in the TMS can help you reduce waste before it becomes a major issue.
