Unlocking the improvement potential in inbound and outbound logistics.

Continuing economic volatility and the ongoing trend towards globalization are forcing shippers, such as manufacturers and retailers, to further assess and optimize their distribution network and transport planning. Shippers are looking for ways to improve the efficiency of their own fleet and/or get the best value from activities outsourced to logistic service providers (LSPs).

Tactical Network Analysis focuses on finding efficient improvements in the existing network. It uses operational data about demand (transport orders) and related service requirements, like time windows, and takes into account other operational constraints such as truck types and sizes, driver capabilities, legal constraints and graduated tariff structures.
