Transportation Simulation for Real Advantages En Route

See Into the Future of Your Supply Chain

There are plenty of “ifs” in freight transportation. Wouldn’t it be nice to know the result of some of those unknowns before you make a decision? That is the true benefit of simulating your transportation network – knowing how your plans will work out prior to executing a shipment. Advanced transportation simulation uses all relevant internal and external data to identify the best-performing routes in a specific circumstance and reveal others that may be problematic. With a glimpse at what lies ahead, you are empowered to make better decisions about asset utilization. The result is truck-level optimization that maximizes hours of service, miles driven, and fuel economy – whether for OTR moves, or costlier final mile deliveries

Logistics service providers and brokerages can use transportation simulation to better deploy assets. The simulation runs can consider the likely number of added pickups versus deliveries, as well as total miles. Continuously optimizing the routes ensures the lowest number of empty miles, while meeting all time and service commitments.

Rerun a Day’s Work to Reveal Inconsistencies and Risk

Sometimes it helps to take a look in the rearview mirror. For example, using transportation simulation to rerun a day’s workload to see how the actual costs and plans stood up over time and under different conditions. This is an invaluable way of generating analyses to improve future routes. It also adds visibility into total transportation spend while optimizing all moves across all modes from within a single resource.
