Your benefits Horizontal collaboration increases, as business units share orders andresources. Centralized planning improves the load factor, reduces the number of emptymiles, and decreases the number of vehicles on the road, lowering CO2emissions. Transport costs decrease as a result of reduced distances, reduced drivingtime, and increased vehicle utilization. Less time required to plan and dispatch. More transparent route planning and vehicle costs. Greater capability to meet changes and short-term requests (e.g., rushorders). Quick simulation of alternate planning scenarios. Results overview in graphical and tabular form. Improved customer service with the automatic inclusion of restrictions,such as delivery slots. Strong ROI cases and references from the US, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. Save costs with centralized deployment. Maintain just one application witha single interface between ERP/ TMS applications and in-vehicle devices.
