Logistics Planning

The Point of View of Quintiq


If you could describe what your logistics planner does in two words, what would those two words be?
- Schedule drivers.
- Re-route shipments.
- Reduce costs.

These are all good answers, but you and I know that your logistics planner impacts your bottom line in more ways than just scheduling trucks and re-planning shipments. Are your drivers and vehicles being utilized effectively? What about fuel efficiency – are there too many empty trips in between shipments or routes that are not optimized? The holiday season is approaching – are there enough resources to manage the increase in orders? All this takes planning and scheduling across different time horizons – hardly an easy task for your planner.
