Transportation Guru is a new application from LLamasoft Inc. that helps users design and analyze their global transportation networks. The application can also be used to solve routing problems and analyze a company's transportation strategy.
According to LLamasoft, Transportation Guru integrates vehicle routing and mode selection functionality with network optimization and enterprise simulation.
Transportation Guru enables logistics professionals to model and optimize their existing transportation network. For example, it can help users identify and select the most efficient mode of transportation or design the best multi-stop routes for inbound, outbound, or periodic shipments.
Shippers and retailers can identify ideal mode and flow path for each product or business unit, while predictive analysis determines the optimal product flow-paths, timing and required capacity. Carriers and 3PLs can improve asset utilization, collaborative moves, and market-specific networks for higher operating efficiency.
Transportation Guru can also help users evaluate entirely new network structures. They can use the application to locate new greenfield sites, to optimize the number and location of distribution sites, or realign distribution center-to-customer/store assignments. It can also simulate the costs and service levels of new transportation strategies or perform what-if analysis on proposed changes to the transportation strategy.
The application communicates its results through detailed route maps, reports and charts.
