Transportation Planning and Forecasting
Optimization at the speed of business
Exceptional Logistics Planning And Forecasting Capabilities
Optimize rates, routes, loads, and networks to create competitive advantage and significant cost reduction. Advanced functions maximize efficiencies throughout your transportation supply chain. Your organization realizes the most cost-efficient freight rates to boost profitability. The all-in-one logistics planning and forecasting functionality comes with a wizard-driven interface, along with task-specific, on-demand training. These functions help newer users achieve faster, better ROI.
Optimization With Tactical And Strategic Expertise
MercuryGate’s industry-leading logistics planning is easily applied, from straightforward static moves to the most varied and dynamic routes. Simple design allows users to run the optimizer to accommodate loads with last-minute changes, without ever needing to adjust any of the parameters. Also, the built-in scripting feature allows companies to customize the tool to overcome specific constraints.
Accurately Factor For Real-World Constraints
Even experienced logistics planners find it challenging to manually plan a small number of shipments while taking all constraints into account. MercuryGate’s transportation planning and forecasting automatically identifies the best transportation options given a variety of considerations, such as dates, vehicles, drivers, routes, freight, services, carrier capacity, facilities, pooling, and asset types. You can even determine the impact of potential changes, such as fuel surcharge increases, on future costs over a baseline for a better understanding moving forward.
Enabling freight optimization during planning can lead to profitability and continuous Improvement
The best logistics forecasting in the business
Hypothetical and Executable
MercuryGate easily processes historical analysis and interrogation requests to explore and evaluate how the optimizer has reached a solution. Users evolve beyond a simple analysis through the optimizer, analyzing the factors affecting given shipments, such as product compatibility. The optimizer further shows the feasibility of time windows, reflecting the ability of the supply chain to meet your planned loading and unloading schedule.
Other optimizers tend to either have limited options or require significant programming. Our wizard-driven interface allows a wide range of capabilities to set up a robotics process automation (RPA) – with no programming skills required.
Pooling and Advanced Routing
Multimodal moves are heavily varied and dynamic, and consolidation isn’t always the right answer. Our optimizer’s functionality provides for multimodal optimization, as well as simple consolidation, ensuring true end-to-end cost efficiency and savings.
Static and Dynamic Routes
The MercuryGate optimizer meets the full spectrum of needs to produce static, dynamic, and hybrid routes. The optimizer leverages route guides, including those of your company and supply chain partners, to continuously improve inbound operations.
