Why Smart Transportation Planning?

The engine considers all outbound shipments which are not expedited or have exceptions and consolidates them together to create optimal loads. The solution also has the following advantages. It can

Recommend optimal mode (Parcel/LTL/TL)

Evaluate novel consolidation ways (e.g. Multi-pickup, Hub) and options (Wait and Consolidate and Pull and Consolidate)

Incorporate customized business rules and include specific constraints such as mode or carrier

Demonstrate business value on pilot locations within 2-3 weeks


Multi-drop (SPMD)

Mulk run deliveries
for multiple shipments

Multi pick (MP)

Pick loads from multiple locations

Pull and
Consolidate (PnC)

Consolidate orders over next 1 or 2 days

Wait and
consolidation (WnC)

Consolidate orders after waiting for a day or two without impacting the OTD. Options for WnC


Simulate savings potential
by holding orders over 1 or 2 days


Machine learning model to predict order patterns, seasonality, and heuristics


Reduced Transportation Cost

ROI within three months of implementation

Improved Load Consolidation

Reduced CO2 Emission
