As a large shipper, you are probably accustomed to arranging a high volume of external transport capacity in addition to having your own fleet. You understand the importance of exchanging data between all these parties in real time and selecting the right moment for the transshipment of goods. Efficient planning and real-time execution result in fewer trucks and trips, less pollution, higher driver safety and happier employees and customers.
