Transportation Planning & Optimization
Transportation Optimization Through Continuous and Incremental Planning Ensures Transportation Plans are Based on Real-Time Conditions
The Transportation Planning and Optimization service enables robust and comprehensive transportation planning. The transportation planning engine relies on the underlying Real Time Value Network™ capability of continuous and incremental planning, which matches plans to actual conditions as they change. In addition to selecting the optimal carrier and mode, the Real Time Value Network can create, consolidate, and aggregate shipments, identify continuous move opportunities, optimize the dispatch schedules, and even consider how to best utilize a private fleet.
In the Real Time Value Network, sites need only be modeled and maintained once for all members of the network. This allows for speedier implementation and ease of maintenance. And only in the Real Time Value Network is planning married to optimized execution orders; the system automatically executes the required transactions.
One Network has successfully allowed Albertsons to streamline and centralize our transportation and appointment scheduling functions. We have benefited by reducing labor costs, improving our supply chain predictability and visibility, and reducing overall transportation costs.
