What is Transportation Planning?

The process of meeting all of the transportation needs—current and future, and combining them with budgets, goals, and policies of the logistics company is known as transportation planning. An efficient transportation planning system aims to create an economical movement of goods and people that is also eco-friendly. Planning and optimization in transportation involve:

  1. Private fleet optimization
  2. Creation and consolidation of shipments
  3. Planning that is automatically updated in real-time
