Transportation Planning & Scheduling

With the flexis Transportation Planning & Scheduling SCM solution , dispatchers and planners can design and optimize transport scenarios. The software enables integrated planning of transport networks, tours, and frequencies based on dynamic transport requirements.

Outcome

Faster, networked planning makes dispatching processes more reliable and economical. The system-side automation and continuous improvement ensures greater efficiency in supply chain management and transport planning.

Benefit

A 24/7 support solution that can be used in a modular way. This sophisticated planning tool supports the optimization of vehicle routing and scheduling and provides the dispatch planner with a systematic overview. The system not only shows alternative courses of action, but also their cost aspects from a logistical and transport technology perspective. This results in a rapid return on investment.

Detail Description

flexis Transportation Planning realizes the coordination with all participants based on continuously retrievable data. This allows dispatchers to plan and schedule the entire network and all vehicle routing. The software enables simulations and provides scenario management so that the most efficient transport solution is always found. Analytics, data integration, and geo-services allow real-time forecasts to be made. In the digital supply chain twin, planners can test scenarios and make optimal decisions based on them. This allows both inbound and outbound transport planning to be optimized and integrated across the entire supply chain.

Added Value

  • Consistent planning of transport and demand: Replaces silos with end-2-end scenarios in supply chain management, integrating planning and execution. Establishes a balance between transport costs and intralogistics costs. Considers Green Footprint targets in the planning stage if necessary. Facilitates end-2-end decisions throughout the supply chain.
  • Performance and speed of decision making: Allows faster decisions through automation; parallel processing instead of sequential processing. Eliminates latency in the information flow between: requirements & deliveries, transport & cost structures. Enables the exchange of information and decisions in real-time between organizations.
  • More precise decision making: Optimizes accurate decisions; easy to combine with a range of goals and constraints. Delivers new & better algorithms in the supply chain through integrated analytics. Supports fine granular, high frequency, and proactive decisions in volatile supply chains.
  • Higher resilience: Provides intelligent and reliable support to make the supply chain more resilient in terms of costs and services. Improves risk management in the supply chain. Enables real-time rescheduling. Includes automated adaptation and real-time analysis. Provides condensed data quality.
