Introduction

Moving the right amount of raw materials, finished goods, and spare parts to and from the factories and warehouses, and making them available at the right place at the right time is a challenge: at one hand, logistics managers want to minimize the cost, and the other hand, other stakeholders want the service level maintained i.e. availability of the goods at the right place at the right time.

Many studies show that a large portion of the cost of a product (15-25%) is the cost incurred on logistics and transportation.

OptiVR is a transportation planning tool, which will enable businesses to minimize the total transportation cost by identifying optimal composition of trucks and their routes.

Challenges

Following are the list of questions logistics and transportation managers try to answer every day:

  • How many trucks to use from the available fleet of trucks?
  • Which customer should be served by each truck and in what sequence?
  • Should the company buy (or) lease (or) rent trucks?
  • What-if the truck capacities are increased/decreased?
  • What would be the impact of fuel price change to logistics cost?
  • What-if alternate transport options are considered?

Solutions

OptiRisk uses scientifically proven models to solve such transportation planning & scheduling problem. Delivery details, customer location, and distance between them, fleet details including cost are taken as input and the tool comes up with optimal routes based on minimal cost for a desired service level.
