APL Logistics has rolled out at new shipment planning platform that automatically generates the best shipment plan against three key objectives: 1) making sure cargo arrives at the final destination on the preferred date, 2) maximizing space and load utilization, and 3) minimizing overall transportation costs.
Called ShipmentOptimizer, this planning platform integrates a web-based shipment planning and optimization tool with APL Logistics' supply chain expertise and technology applications. It first considers all possible combinations of shipment flows, modes, routes, and cargoes and then recommends the ideal shipment plan. This optimal plan is then continually updated as assumptions or conditions change, relying on real-time data fed by other applications in APL Logistics' technology suite.
