Todd Strickler, Logistics Manager for Sanimax- leading BioReturn™ company, explains his reasons for choosing Descartes' transportation management system-TMS (Descartes Transportation Manager™) and route planning solution (Descartes Route Planner™).
The Descartes Transportation Manager™ solution helps logistics professionals quickly evaluate money-saving transportation and shipping options, and then execute those shipments with contract carriers. Built to accommodate the end-to-end supply chain management process, Descartes’ transportation management system (TMS) also supports order management through consolidation, financial settlement and auditing.
Descartes Route Planner™ fleet routing solution incrementally builds delivery schedules and vehicle routing plans. As each new order is received, the vehicle route planning schedule is regenerated in real time to reallocate mobile fleet resources to optimize operating efficiencies, deliver priority service to the most profitable accounts and routes, and maintain overall customer service objectives. Descartes route planning solution is a web-based GPS fleet tracking application that helps improve operational efficiency through better route scheduling. It is designed to easily integrate with existing order management or transportation management systems. It helps companies reduce operating costs, which can minimize total route distances and average miles between stops.
