Transportation Leadership Journal
The transportation industry is fundamentally changing. The year 2020 will kick off a decade with new frontiers in data science, artificial intelligence, and optimization—all leading up to a shift in focus.
When routing guides fail to perform according to plan, shippers are left scrambling to find available capacity to deliver their goods to market, often in the form of spot market freight or brokerage solutions. These band-aid fixes for common network problems typically come with a higher price tag than originally planned for and only address a symptom of the larger issue of an imperfect network. More strategic capacity solutions are necessary in today’s transportation environment.
Breakthrough’s capacity solutions uncover opportunities for shippers to partner with carriers of best fit for their network. This approach supports a robust capacity strategy by helping shippers find regional partners that are otherwise hard to identify and eliminates the need for ongoing spot market or brokerage usage.
This carrier search functionality paired with our rate guidance expertise and the ability to connect directly with recommended carriers are all available to shippers in our FELIX platform. This provides seamless, ongoing capacity right-sizing to keep shipper networks whole.
