APL improves shipment planning

[ February 15, 2012   //   ]

APL Logistics today has launched a shipment planning platform to help major freight buyers coordinate their transportation activities. It says that Shipment Optimizer is the industry’s first global shipment planning platform capable of automatically generating the best shipment plan against three concurrent objectives, namely cargoes arriving at final destination on the preferred date; maximising space and load utilisation; and minimising overall transportation costs on a door-to-door basis. Shipment Optimizer has already been rolled out with a world-leading sportswear brand last November and is now being deployed with two other international apparel giants.
