Great need for predictive transportation optimization


Stuttgart, October 2021. flexis was listed as a Sample Vendor in Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Supply Chain Execution Technologies, 2021. “Transformational” is the benefit rating for Transportation Forecasting solutions for shippers and carriers, according to this report and flexis was identified as one of the vendors providing this solution.

flexis solution for vehicle routing, ProfiTOUR, automates planning and execution for pickup and delivery routes with a smart process. Dynamic routing adjusts plans as conditions change, preventing unexpected events, like traffic problems or last-minute customer requests, from causing costly disruptions. ProfiTOUR also optimizes routes to maximize customer satisfaction, profitability, social and environmental goals with each delivery.

“Gartner research finds that shippers and carriers are shifting from a singular emphasis on cost reduction to better address efficiency and productivity, with a focus on the impact of transportation and logistics on company growth and profitability. Shippers are also looking for ways to tackle the capacity and rate flux experienced during disruptions in the transportation industry.”*

Companies increasingly turn to transportation forecasting solutions to resolve this issue, and ProfiTOUR provides visibility to the transportation needs of each route. Changing market conditions and rising customer expectations are forcing businesses to understand freight capacity and carrier availability better. Transportation planning should integrate with the S&OP process to extend forecasts further into the future. Many operations still rely on spreadsheets, which are error-prone, unscalable, and of limited capability, making ProfiTOUR particularly attractive for these companies.

ProfiTOUR is a cloud-based, dynamic routing solution that optimizes transportation forecasting, route planning, vehicle loading, and navigation.
