Transportation Load Optimizer

Optimize transportation load building across your supply chain.

Control costs and improve sustainability.

P4flow logoKinaxis Transportation Load Optimizer by 4flow is an embedded RapidResponse application that gives Kinaxis customers an accurate overview of the entire supply chain, including transportation, in the material planning stage. It helps the planners to make confident, profitable supply chain decision by considering earlier on time transportation variables such as capacity, planning horizons, material availability.

Kinaxis Transportation Load Optimizer supports improved material handling processes with concurrent, seamless integration into RapidResponse sales and operations planning (S&OP) workflows and what-next scenarios. Its optimization algorithms are based on real-world constraints, including freight rates and actual transportation capacities for actionable planning results. Kinaxis Transportation Load Optimizer reduces transportation spend by “preponing” and postponing shipments to consolidate orders and create fuller, more efficient loads. Kinaxis Transportation Load Optimizer reduces freight spend and increases capacity utilization by creating fuller, more efficient loads, resulting in significantly reduced freight spend and CO2 emissions for greater sustainability.

01

Create efficient transportation loads

Adjust orders into physical and shippable loads considering real-world logistics network characteristics.

02

Increase agility

Optimize and maximize transportation capacities from a strategic level down to the operational level.

03

Take control

Schedule transportation right down to the part number level.

04

Empower planners

Forecast full transportation loads (FTL) and less-than-full transportation loads (LTL) in the short and medium term.

05

Reduce risk

Anticipate freight costs when calculating what-next scenarios in the S&OP process.

06

Go Green

Reduce carbon footprint by reducing the number of shipments and increasing utilization, without any extra effort.

Gain efficiency, save on transportation spend, and reduce emissions for people, profits and the planet with Kinaxis Transportation Load Optimizer by 4flow.

Overview Metrics Dashboard

Get a complete overview of the most relevant KPIs of your transportation lane at a glance. Visualize and analyze metrics such transportation costs, utilization average and optimization potential.

TLO Planning

Optmize and plan your orders into physical loads that can be shipped while automatically considering real supply network aspects such capacity, material availibility and planning horizon. Confident decision making is assured by full transperency on the results and manual adjustment capabilities.

Preparation and Analysis

Control and prepare your data in one go through error notification and handling functionalities, manual adjustment or automatic data maintenance capabilities. Review the impact of the proposed plan on demand fullfillment and inventory supply.

Execution and CO2 Metrics Dashboard

Learn if some orders were excluded from the optimization and, review the root -cause to troubleshoot. Review and track the carbon emission of your lane.
