Transportation is a critical element of your customer’s supply chain that plays a major role in order fulfillment and customer satisfaction. It is also a major cost center, with outbound transportation accounting for as much as half of total supply chain costs. Yet transportation is often ignored or optimized at the expense of other parts of the supply chain, such as inventory or service levels.
