And both their business processes have to streamlined in order to achieve this goal.

Today, most businesses use basic technologies to manage their information and business processes. These technologies can get you only so far. In order to fully streamline your business processes you need a comprehensive, end-to-end solution.


Following are some of the challenges this industry is facing today:


Capacity Utilization

In today's transportation industry, whether you have tens or hundreds or thousands of vehicles transporting goods, under-utilization of container space on a given route is a huge problem.

Inefficient Routing

If your business serves on a large transportation network with multi-city deliveries, routing your vehicles is not easy and rising fuel costs and driver salaries can hit your bottom line.


Fleet Management

Your fleet of trucks is your biggest asset. Optimal planning can minimize your fuel costs, maximize capacity utilization and eliminate shipment delays. Ad-hoc routing of your trucks is inefficient and expensive.

Disconnected Business Network

Your business often relies on a network of other transportation agencies for sales leads. Lack of an efficient network of these agencies and their leads often force your fleet to be under-utilized.


Warehouse Management

If you are a shipper you will most probably have warehouses where goods in transition are stored. And if you have a network of warehouses in different locations managing them efficiently is a huge challenge.

Order Management

Shippers and carriers need an efficient order management system, without which they risk delays in shipment and a slide in customer satisfaction. Streamlining your order management can help eliminate these problems.
