Get the most accurate assessment of strength and weaknesses within your transport network.
3PLs have to supply the future demand of the shippers and, therefore, have similar questions on a different level such as where to strengthen the network, where to close locations, where to increase or decrease capacities and where to prolong contracts with subcontractors and carriers.
Major challenges for 3PLs in transport cost planning:
• What are the subcontractors, locations and customers of the future?
• What are the requested delivery times and frequencies?
• How to bundle transport volume?
• What tariffs and capacities have to be considered?
In addition, 3PLs want to track their planned transport costs and emissions vs. the actual data and want an early warning as to if and why they are running out the planned transport budget. All together – a complex challenge.
