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 solution 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.
