Less Than Truck Load vs. Full Truck Load

Predefined rules and parameters help you select the best sequence and location combination to route a truck based on logistics, costs, and service levels.

Intermodal Rail vs. Full Truck Load

Identify the optimal choice between intermodal rail and full truck load (FTL) transportation based on two key variables: cost and time. This component also allows you to synchronize transportation planning and execution – and manage carrier costs and availability across the shipper’s logistical network.
