ProvisionAI has introduced LevelLoad, a scheduling tool designed to fix replenishment by bridging the gap between supply planning and execution. The software analyzes shipment patterns over the next 30 days and identifies unnecessary spikes in demand, for example at month end. The system can then adjust by shipping some products early or holding less-needed items a day or two.
LevelLoad's optimizing load builder can help maximize vehicle capacity utilization. It employs a combination of linear programming, heuristics and reinforcement learning (AI) to achieve these results.
The system processes network demand, order, forecast, and transportation data, along with facility constraints, to generate daily optimizations. The output is a replenishment transportation schedule that enables shippers to commit to carriers earlier and build optimized shipments.
