Supply Chain Transportation Management Solution FAQs
What is the Role of Transportation in Supply Chain Management?
Transportation is what delivers products in the supply chain to their intended destination through all stages of the supply chain — from warehouses to retail stores and material stages all the way through to consumer deliveries. Modes of transportation within the bulk and break-bulk supply chain include rail, trucking, intermodal, barge, & ocean shipping.
Why is Transportation Important to Supply Chain Management?
Effective use of transportation is essential to modern supply chain management — leading to more on-time deliveries, satisfied customers, reduced risk, and saved time & resources. Break-bulk and bulk shippers need to determine who & what form of transportation will most effectively get their shipments from point to point in order to avoid frustrated customers and move on to the next shipment ASAP. When managing their operations, shippers need to balance cost & efficiency to ensure both reasonable rates and satisfactory service.
How Can Management Teams Reduce Transportation Costs in the Supply Chain?
Good management teams reduce transportation costs by analyzing real-time insights into the location of their shipments and leveraging the best rates for every mode and lane available. Using supply chain visibility, shippers pinpoint the location of their shipments at any time, gaining detailed insights into where & when shipments will arrive and taking actions to expedite them in the face of unnecessary delays. By tracking which parties consistently delay shipments, where problems occur, and how much each mode of transportation costs, shippers can also continuously choose the most effective means of transportation and streamline their entire shipment processes.
What Modes of Transportation in the Supply Chain Benefit From Better Management?
All modes of transportation in the supply chain benefit from better management. The IntelliTrans Global Control Tower helps lower the total cost of shipments by 5-10% — effectively minimizing expenses and enhancing the efficiency of shipments. Expansive-tendering algorithms ensure shippers leverage the best deals for truck shipments, saving an average of $176/load on truck spot rates. Advanced analytics enable comparison of rail rates to ensure shippers are acting on competitive pricing. Fully integrated ocean shipment execution technology enables shippers to compare 18 million schedules between 425,000 port pairs. Finally, managing shipments with real-time tracking also allows shippers to keep a constant eye on the progress and status of shipments — which is especially essential for intermodal shipments.
