The TMS (Transportation Management System – Road & Rail) in LSS uses automatic planning software. After processing the shipments, TMS determines the optimum route and advises directly about the choice of own equipment or use of partners for transportation.
From the customer location table, the planning system adds logistical information – such as time windows and vehicle restrictions – to all shipments. It also optimizes the sequence of stops for regular routes and displays them on the planning screen. The system then allows the planner – on the basis of prior insights – to move shipments within the same route or to other routes. Especially practical is the fact that TMS processes every change made to the planner, visualizes these on the map, and displays all related costs. The system also makes recommendations in terms of which orders from specific routes should be logically assigned to a different route. All this from a cost-perspective. Besides efficiency and cost savings, this also minimizes the number of kilometers and amount of CO2 emission. In real-time, the planner can see where specific vehicles are located, which shipments have already been completed and the expected times of arrival at all addresses on the route. The planner also receives a sign when a driver arrives somewhere too early or too late, in order to take action directly when necessary.
