Transport costs can be dramatically lowered if shipments are intelligently consolidated. But such efforts can be carried out only by using an integrated transport management system that provides total transparency for all scheduled deliveries.
This is exactly what SupplyOn's transport management system does: The system generates joint forwarder pickup advice for delivery instructions that can be consolidated on the basis of delivery time, pickup site and delivery address. The basis for this consolidation is formed by the master data stored in the system, including defined routes and contractually set rates. In a second step, an optimization algorithm ensures that optimal loads can be created from the individual shipments. At the end, the system identifies the shipping company with the best rates while considering contract terms stored in the system as well as service level agreements (SLA).
