Additional highlights from Manhattan's TMS 2017 include:
- Dynamic and opportunistic cross-docking that considers already-planned inventory, inventory in motion and inventory at interim facilities when determining the subsequent movement of products through one or more waypoints. This enables effective cost-based and time-based decision making for optimal routing.
- Seasonal demand analysis that identifies data patterns to boost planning accuracy. By analyzing demand history, strategic modeling provides a solution that is both operationally feasible and optimal to the network.
- Automated, rules-based appointment scheduling to streamline workflow and improve efficiencies for planners. This new rules framework allows users to focus on exceptions and provides greater flexibility when managing the appointment process.
- Enhanced buy/sell management capabilities that provide 3PLs and carrier users with more robust dual rating, visibility and customer billing functionality so as to optimize revenue and margin management.
