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.
MARKET DYNAMICS SHIFT
As the economic environment ebbs and flows, so does the movement of freight. Today’s market conditions may not have the same influence as those a month from now, or beyond.
SHIPPERS NEEDS EVOLVE
Consumer demands change, and freight must follow suit. Unexpected changes in volume can cause shippers to deviate from the plan made with carriers during the RFP.
CARRIER NETWORKS CHANGE
Carrier networks are dynamic. With so many moving pieces, they can easily shift away from plan. This could leave a shipper’s freight without contracted capacity where it is needed.
Transportation professionals are challenged to deliver products in dynamic operations environments. From delivering products to customers on time to managing transportation budgets or creating continuous improvements opportunities the demands are ever evolving. The key to a more sophisticated transportation strategy lies in how you leverage holistic network data. With Breakthrough Network Intelligence, shippers optimize their transportation networks using actionable recommendations to uncover network efficiencies.
Backed with an accurate and dynamic dataset representative of the broader North American transportation ecosystem, FELIX will actively monitor your network performance and continually surface recommendations when reality strays from plan. This active, detailed network management ensures shipper networks stay intact, achieving the goals determined at the outset of your procurement strategy.
