Transportation optimization

The transportation optimization module in the supply chain software 4flow vista® makes it possible to perform integrated transportation planning with sustainable cost reductions.

Transportation costs are a significant driver of the total supply chain costs for businesses. This is amplified by the increasing complexity of global supply chains. In supply chains that have grown over time, subprocesses usually are not aligned with other functions. The lack of alignment across processes causes high transportation costs and transactional costs.

The approaches to reducing transportation costs range from long-term optimization of transportation and network structures to short-term optimization of transportation capacities. 4flow vista® integrates individual transportation planning steps into one standardized process.

The key benefits of 4flow vista® are the substantial and sustained reduction of transportation costs through enhanced planning and continuous optimization – on a strategic level, tactical level, and an operational level.

Additional benefits of 4flow vista®

  • Easy visualization, analysis and optimization of transportation networks
  • Modeling of all transportation concepts and rates
  • Standardized transportation planning
  • Modules for strategic, tactical and operational planning
  • Compatible with execution-oriented systems

How 4flow vista® works

4flow vista® is the first integrated software of its kind for transportation optimization. The end-to-end approach spans from strategic and tactical planning to operational planning.

4flow vista® depicts the current transportation network so that you can determine key cost and performance metrics and identify potential areas for improvement. The software allows users to determine the optimal transportation structures and rates during strategic planning. Through tactical transportation planning, capacity utilization and costs can be optimized on an ongoing basis. In operational planning, individual shipments are planned in detail based on the overall daily transportation volume in order to remove inefficiencies. The planning results can be integrated into operational transportation management systems.
