Visibility between the fleet and for hire worlds’ shipments uncovers many opportunities to improve performance.
The details of how to plan and execute across private fleet and for-hire operations is complex and requires the combined capabilities of a fully-featured route planning and dispatch solutions and a transportation management system. These traditionally distinct systems must also be combined in a way that provides excellent usability, flexible business processes, and the ability to address the ebbs and flows between order management systems, carriers and fleets. Solutions should:
- Support workflows that allow freight to be analyzed against both private fleet and for-hire functions at the same time
- Allow operators to override standard cost metrics to define how and when a private fleet option must be used
- Support the movement of freight back and forth across the private fleet and for-hire options as daily plans evolve
