Optimization During Planning for Better Profitability
and Continuous Improvement

Key planning functions set our planning suite apart in the industry:

Logistics with Tactical and Strategic Expertise

Our industry-leading logistics shipment planning is easily applied across your whole supply chain, from straightforward full truckload moves to the most varied and dynamic courier and parcel deliveries that require continuous re-routing. A simple easy-to-understand user interface 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. 
Schedule complex multimodal, global moves that may include drayage, ocean, rail, less-than-truckload (LTL), truckload, and cartage all at once. Consolidate shipments across locations, and even measure the amount of C02 emission you reduced as a result. Use actual contract rates, even from carrier application programming interfaces (APIs). The opportunities are as extensive and varied as your business model for end-to-end logistics.

Accurately Factor for Real-World Constraints

We leaned on decades of expertise in managing the complexities of multimodal logistics, to develop our advanced planning technology. Each element that can affect desired outcomes is factored in as part of the shipment planning equation. This sets our clients up for success while setting us apart from the competition.
Even experienced logistics planners find it challenging to manually plan a small number of shipments while taking all constraints into account. Our planning suite 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 for better decision-making.
