Transportation & Logistics a Better Way

The fewer loads, the better you can utilize your drivers. The more miles are minimized, the less the fossil fuel consumption. Transportation management system optimization looks beyond the logistics costs and also takes into account loading patterns, modality, realistic route and even the environmental impact of your emissions. As supply chain engineers, we understand the importance of reducing freight spend while increasing service levels and finding new transportation planning and optimization opportunities along the way.

Transportation Optimization & Routing

Transportation optimization looks beyond the basic logistics costs and also takes into account loading patterns, modality (Truckload, LTL, Intermodal, etc.), accessorials, realistic route and even the environmental impact of your emissions.

Transportation RFP Management

Navigating your freight spend and carrier RFPs can be a daunting project, especially with the added pressure for costs to decrease and service levels to rise. To get the most accurate and effective bid from your carrier network, it’s critical to have a detailed process outlining all relative expectations and information. Velis can guide your firm through the entire process, from developing your market strategy and RFP packet to analyzing multiple rounds of carrier rate submissions for final awards and implementation – all while achieving your most important objectives.
