This leads to an agile, reactive, and dynamic setup for a company’s transportation management system.
With effective schedules and permanent journey plans for the delivery and field agents, resource movement cost can be reduced while increasing overall resource utilization. Shorter distances traveled with lesser detention leads to higher number of deliveries fulfilled and visits accomplished.

It isn’t feasible to run under-utilized resources to fulfill the ever-increasing demand created due to expectations of on-demand, same, or next day deliveries. On-demand and preferred slot delivery (or pick-up) is made more efficient with the use of an auto-allocation engine.

We saw last mile delivery being used as the key input in all omnichannel strategies. We saw localization in distribution strategies centered around making last mile delivery more effective.
