Accelerator Synopsis

Smart Transportation Planning System (STPS) helps transform transportation with real-time analytics. The accelerator proves its effectiveness by integrating technological advancements in the Transport Management System (TMS) and utilizing the Supply Chain space to make informed decisions. 

 

STPS is a fusion of components that provides the customers with the most cost-effective deliveries within service level constraints. It uses statistical methods and operations research, linear programming, combinatorial optimization, mathematical simulation, and queuing theory to help in decision-making and optimization.
