Improve Profitability with Fleet Management Software for Outsourcing or Your Own Fleet
For most companies, transportation management presents one of the greatest opportunities to increase profitability and gain competitive advantage in your supply chain. Yet many supply chain logistics operations miss this opportunity by using manual processes or disparate systems that lead to poor freight visibility, excess inventory and fulfillment scheduling issues.
Your market conditions and strategic approach determines whether you prefer to outsource transportation or your own or contracted fleet or a combination of both:
Outsourced transportation - you seek flexibility and ability to combine different carriers or services. Here you need efficient and certified integration and collaboration with carriers, ability to follow up their performance and to automate freight costing and payment.
Own or contracted fleet - you need to build increased internal competence around route and load planning to increase vehicle utilization and customer service. Here you need dynamic route and load planning of vehicles, with real-time links to order management for prompt delivery promising, warehouse execution for wave planning and dock door allocation as well as last minute changes.
