LogCOST derives transport costs directly from the production and sales forecast.
We use both forecasts down to SKU-level to derive transport volumes. On the inbound side, we link the bill of materials, planned production output and relevant suppliers to derive transport volumes. We use the same method for intercompany transports. For outbound volumes, we use the sales forecasts per region to derive transport costs for the finished goods. LogCOST merges this information to create transports and assess them with company-specific, detailed transport tariffs. As a result, you have planned inbound, intercompany and outbound costs on an SKU/product level. What’s more, with LogCOST you can control and report planned and actual transport costs in one tool. This enables you to identify and analyze at an early stage if, where and why you are running out of budget.
