Model Network Behavior to Drive Value

Taking a Big Picture View of Your Transportation Network

We all want to be set up for success. In transportation management, that means optimization. But optimization isn’t possible without strong network modeling capabilities. A well-designed model takes these details and simulates moves across all modes to deliver meaningful benefits.

Consider the Risks and Plan Ahead

The value of insight comes from the ability to intervene before a delay or disruption impacts a shipment. Transportation network modeling looks at every aspect of an order, considers all possible risks, and finds alternate solutions where needed. Want to know more? Watch our Transportation Modeling video for tips on how shippers and logistics professionals can use transportation modeling to reduce complexity.

What Transportation Network Models Can Uncover

The Right Provider for Each Shipment
The lowest-cost option may not always be the best buy. Transportation network modeling within the TMS reveals which carriers can meet both service levels and price points.
The Most Cost-Effective Shipping Option

If cost reduction is a priority, modeling your historic transportation moves can generate recommendations for new lanes, modes, and carriers and can save you money.

Continuous, Rule-based Efficiency

Many different risk factors and priorities can influence shipping needs. Add dynamic rule sets to your transportation model to continuously improve performance based on multiple scenarios and circumstances.

Full Lifecycle Improvement

Any effective transportation modeling plan is only as effective as its reach. Beginning with planning and ending with the final mile, the MercuryGate TMS accounts for every mile along the way in your transportation models – ensuring you don’t miss any chance for efficiency.

Up-to-the moment Optimization Opportunities
Yesterday’s model may not account for today’s conditions. Take a few minutes to re-run or automate models as often as needed to ensure the latest information on volume, traffic, weather, and circumstances is considered.
Replicated Savings and Operational Improvement
The best and most accurate models may be used as templates to improve future shipment plans that can align with any pre-defined user needs.
