What can you achieve with Solvoyo
Transportation Planning Solution?

You can automatically build multi-stop, multi-modal, and multi-day routes with pickup and delivery time windows, complex tariff structures, operational constraints of the transportation resources, including the dedicated fleet and the drivers, and the hours-of-service regulations. Furthermore, exchange data with your 3PL, your carrier, and your DC ops via any digital interface at any frequency -even real-time. With optimal routing and scheduling capabilities, our platform will reduce your inbound, inter-facility, and outbound transportation costs while increasing delivery performance. With its AI-driven actionable insights, Solvoyo can also help you track your transportation KPIs and fill in the performance leaks in your operations.

Future-proof transportation planning tools should be much more intelligent than the traditional tools leading the market today. Given the rapid advances in inexpensive sensors, geodata, and software technologies, it is essential to have access to high-resolution, real-time data from enterprise systems as well as external services. On Solvoyo’s platform, you can easily exchange data and intelligence with multiple sources – ERP, WMS, TMS, CRM for enterprise data, as well as services that provide data from embedded sensors on trucks, navigation devices, and package tracking services, to name a few.

Transportation is a significant cost for retailers and CPG companies. Yet, many see it as an operational support function and disregard the effect of long-term carrier contracts and the projected freight capacity shortages. The bottom line is that transportation should be part of tactical and strategic decisions and planned beyond the operational window. Solvoyo platform will help you forecast future requirements by mode and support carrier bidding and the purchasing cycle. The same platform will help you operationalize the strategy and tactics, ensuring vertical alignment of enterprise decisions.

With Solvoyo’s end-to-end capabilities, you can automate concurrent planning of priority-based order fulfillment and outbound transportation, align production to maximize truck fill rates, and coordinate inbound runs with optimal production sequence.
