Solutions for Transportation
Planning and real-time execution
Our transportation practice offers proven expertise in designing and implementing optimization-based transportation planning and real-time execution systems. Most of our engagements have been in technology development, addressing the needs of airlines, trucking carriers, and large shippers. For one large LTL carrier, we designed and implemented a dispatch optimization system to plan the number of drivers and their routes for every shift. The system also addressed the issues of balancing empty trailers, minimizing deadheads, and customizing drive management to meet union regulations. The solution reduced the deadheads by approximately 10%.
For an international multi-modal transportation carrier, we designed a cost-forecasting system that used activity-based costing to calculate operations costs on a daily basis. This had a significant impact on the cash-flow of the provider.
