Whether your needs are for general load building and shipment consolidation resulting from rule-based computations; or you require more complex supply chain planning employing advanced algorithms and heuristic optimization methods, we’ve got you covered.
Alpega’s fully integrated logistics planning and optimization engine dynamically incorporates any changes such as transportation costs, routings, capacity, frequencies, delivery and pickup constraints, etc. It’s designed to manage three levels of transportation planning for highly complex transportation networks: strategic, tactical and dynamic.
When it comes to successful supply chains, it’s important to consider the long-term, holistic planning of your complete logistics network and associated infrastructure and facility locations.
Shipments can be bundled, transportation strategies optimized, costs and service time reduced, and asset utilization increased for maximum efficiency.
Market shifts and changing logistics trends means long-term planning often fails to leverage mid-term opportunities, such as those presented by a change in route or supply chain partner.
Factor in new players or routes into tactical planning and assess their impact and cost-saving potential overall.
Daily operational optimization of shipments and asset utilization aligns the selection of optimal transportation services with the bundling of individual shipments. Short-term changes in demand need to be handled cost-effectively.
Alpega’s logistics SaaS solution includes a 3D load planning feature, which enriches dynamic and tactical planning via 3D visualization and supports the planning workflow.
Structure your logistics network layout inclusive of all relevant transportation modes, locations, scenarios and allocation decisions.
Optimize your transportation rates, routes and modes.
Optimize your transport loads and routes based on actual daily and operational demands.
When utilizing all three levels of transportation planning and optimization — strategic, tactical and dynamic — companies can identify anywhere between 12-20% cumulative savings in freight spend.
The ability to perform strategic, tactical and dynamic planning using real-time, current state data is necessary to prepare for – and minimize the impacts of – supply chain disruptions. Need to reallocate capacity? Reposition product or resources? Determine new routes for carriers outside your network? With Alpega’s transportation planning and optimization engine, you can build these and other types of scenarios into your supply chain modeling in order to evaluate, analyze, and create informed contingency plans.
With fully integrated transportation management, planning and optimization, companies can proactively manage their transportation network and quickly respond to changes. By leveraging data across all logistics processes within your transportation operations, you gain end-to-end transparency and optimized performance throughout the supply chain.
