An optimal route schedule is not enough. It’s just as important to manage execution of your schedule effectively. So you can anticipate and avoid costly disruptions, and respond instantly to everything from urgent orders and congestion to breakdowns and failed deliveries.
If not, the effect on key areas such as transportation costs and customer service levels can be dramatic. And your planners and dispatchers come under increasing pressure. Firefighting problems, which inevitably leads to a vicious circle of poor decisions and increased strain on the schedule.
