Define Efficient Routes, Reduce Landed Cost, Optimize Mix and Mode, and Test Service Levels
Using advanced algorithms, transportation routes are defined to minimize cost of inbound or outbound shipments, while considering realistic cost and constraint structures. This helps answer the question, “what happens to transportation routes when the network design is changed?”
Using transportation optimization, analysts can baseline existing routing strategies and test new strategies to predict actual costs and service levels. Optimal daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly plans can be created to set inventory levels, schedule production and to define distribution routing. LLamasoft transportation enables users to model their entire supply chain network, incorporating alternative transportation options and key variables such as cost, time, capacity and delivery parameters. Users can identify an optimal transportation plan based on the total costs and service constraints.
