Transport Management Suite allows companies to automate processes and help reduce costs
Stokenchurch, UK – RedPrairie Holding. Inc., a productivity solutions provider, will be discussing how transportation management systems (TMS) can be an effective tool to meet the challenges arising from a tough economic climate at Logistics Link South (2nd-3rd February 2010, Sandown Park, Esher, stand 1).
Andrew Kirkwood, Senior Vice President and Executive Director, RedPrairie, said "At a time when it is vital for businesses to reduce cost and increase efficiencies, RedPrairie’s solutions can help companies keep their goods moving, enable employees to work more effectively, and reduce transport costs. Depending on the company’s current situation, a TMS could help save up to 20-40% of costs associated with process improvement and administration."
For example, Fleet Management, an integrated module of RedPrairie’s Transportation Management system, optimises daily routing and scheduling of pick-up and delivery for private and dedicated fleets. Through load balancing and stop assignment, Fleet Management helps ensure efficient capacity utilisation, making it possible to serve more customers each day and potentially reducing the number of vehicles in operation.
COPLEX®, RedPrairie’s continuous planning and execution engine, constantly evaluates orders, fulfilment requirements, capacity limitations, and other constraints to automatically generate the most effective, lowest cost plan.
Transportation Management also offers the advantage of integration with RedPrairie’s Warehouse Management suite, providing workflow processing that makes fulfilment and logistics a single, coordinated function. Integration to legacy and third party systems is also available.
Visitors to Logistics Link South will also be able to talk to RedPrairie experts about the benefits that can be achieved with RedPrairie’s Workforce Management solution, which helps organisations improve productivity in their distribution centres.
