Transportation and Route Optimization

Reducing transportation costs is taking on increased significance in this time of weak demand and fluctuating fuel costs. Optimal transportation routes that remove waste from supply chains are a source of competitive advantage that affects the bottom line.

Optimizing transportation routes is a non-trivial problem that requires a sophisticated solution. Too often, companies settle for a "close to optimal" solution that leaves 10-15% of transportation savings unrealized due to less-than-optimal use of resources. Using PMC's state-of-the art software tools, routes can be optimized relative to Delivery Volumes and Time Requirements, Delivery Costs, Route Distances, and Load leveling Requirements.
