Transport Management

Transport has become highly complex. You can choose from a host of carriers, each of which offers different service capacities and prices. How can you make sure every shipment will arrive in the right place and at the right time without you having to worry about it?

It is the customer who determines where and when you need to deliver

In the demand-driven supply chain, it is the customer who determines where and when you need to deliver. The choices you make in the field of transport are therefore becoming increasingly important. After all, you want to deliver on time and at an affordable price.

Transport Management

You may work with large shipments that are distributed to your customers by haulage companies, or you may also have your own drivers. You may even work with small shipments for whom you enlist the services of parcel delivery companies such as DHL and PostNL. This results in a constant coming and going of drivers who all want to leave with the right cargo – ideally with as little empty space as possible on their lorries.

Smart multi-carrier selections

The costs of all these journeys can easily add up, and many organisations are struggling with the complexity this creates in the chain. After all, there are plenty of possible approaches and carriers, each with their own services and price structures. You want to maintain efficient control based on insights into all aspects of the supply chain, such as the positive or negative performance of your hauliers, factory, country and cost centres – both in terms of materials and customers.
