LOAD PLANNING AND SHIPPING
Route optimization functions allow the planner to move orders from one route to another based on truck capacity and freight weight. The Load planning module is particularly useful where companies own their own distribution fleet. Truck capacity utilization can now be accurately measured and targets set. Also during peak periods, one can easily see what the next day’s truck hiring requirements are.
Any returned deliveries are unloaded at night and highlighted in red on the Load Planning screen for next day prompt execution.
For contracted logistics, a full shipping module allows for seamless integration into all major shipping lines. Rate shopping of orders ensures that the most optimal carrier is selected. Where possible, orders are released with a common master shipment number so that we optimize the shipment costs. All LSP label requirements are set up within the software for cartons and pallets. Our EDI module prepares and outputs the required data to be sent to the LSP.
