Capabilities

  • Continuous Multi-Modal Optimization

    Automate end-to-end transportation across multiple modes and regions, including automatic tendering, multi-stop/multi-leg routings. Make use of dynamic, analytics-based suggestions for carrier selection across multiple legs and modes, and schedule options to optimize cost and lead time.
  • Transportation Sourcing, Rating, and Freight Audit and Pay

    Automate and control transportation sourcing strategies across all modes through optimized bid events and “what-if” analysis. Dynamically ensure routing guide compliance and manage carrier service levels. Seamlessly match freight invoices with current rates to resolve discrepancies through a collaborative dispute workflow.
  • Source Shipment Automation

    Improve compliance and speed-to-market by automating the packing and shipping process at factories. Postpone destination decisions, execute direct ship and cross-dock strategies. Ensure compliance with customer requirements through automated packing instructions and dynamic label and ASN generation. Automate receiving through item-level tagging and carton and shipping labels.

Use standard booking and tendering workflows with pre-integrated carriers, including messages and interfaces to communicate transport plan data for all modes and all types of services. Create and edit shipping instructions and compare them to bills of lading.
