Kinaxis Transportation Load Optimizer by 4flow provides users an accurate view of their rail, ocean, air and truck load transportation costs by considering transportation variables such as carrier rates and inventory costs to create optimal loads based on supply, demand and market indicators. It supports improved material handling processes with seamless integration into RapidResponse sales and operations planning (S&OP) workflows and what-next scenarios.
Using optimization algorithms based on real-world constraints, including freight rates and actual transportation capacities, users are provided with actionable planning results. The application helps reduce transportation spend and increases capacity utilization by optimizing shipment scheduling to consolidate orders and create fuller, more efficient loads, while meeting customer delivery commitments.
