Intelligent planning for healthier profit margins

In an industry plagued by high fuel prices and volatile demand, delivering cargo at the lowest cost without compromising service levels is crucial to sustaining long-term customer relationships. It takes a great amount of preparation to create optimal delivery plans – but plans can quickly become obsolete. Does your planning department have the support and control required to deliver optimal plans even in the face of inevitable last-minute disruptions?

Optimizing valuable resources can mean the difference between a profitable delivery and a costly mistake. As driver shortage is a common constraint in long-haul deliveries, smart allocation of carriers is required to achieve delivery targets. Your operations need flexibility to overcome bottlenecks and capacity restrictions while still meeting service-level agreements.
