Blend intelligence and analytics to optimise transportation costs and improve delivery performance.
Transportation is a huge savings opportunity
Transportation typically accounts for 40-60% of supply chain costs. Understanding where this spend goes – and knowing how to optimise it – is the key to transportation efficiency.
The problem is the complexity of the logistics landscape. With many different 3PL and 4PL providers, data fragmented across the enterprise, and poor insight into carrier performance, it’s hard to strike the right balance of cost and quality.
Add the pressure to make better decisions, faster – and supply chain professionals have a significant challenge on their hands.
Move transportation management into the fast lane
Transportation Analytics from The Smart Cube blends analytics and intelligence to continuously optimise your transportation costs and performance.
It’s a comprehensive analytics solution that can collate, standardise and harmonise your transportation data from disparate sources, and mine it for insights to transform your transportation operations.
Customised reports and dashboards tailored to your organisation mean you can make data-led decisions about carrier selection, route optimisation, joint innovation initiatives, and more.
Your custom Transportation Analytics dashboards deliver insights in four key areas:
- Carrier identification and selection: Assess, benchmark and evaluate carriers for effective tender planning and execution.
- Operational performance: Monitor carrier spend and performance against defined KPIs for individual sectors, markets or business units.
- Route and network analytics: Optimise and plan your logistics network for maximum efficiency at optimum cost.
- Joint innovation initiatives: Identify joint innovation opportunities with logistics service providers or internal teams, and track progress and results on an ongoing basis.
