Schedule Transportation

The activities associated with the selection of transportation mode, service provider and issuing a request for transportation services. This may include determining optimal transportation mode, route and service level to meet customer promise, building loads and tendering for transportation services. Typically transportation scheduling focuses on:

  • Routing shipments (long haul and/or last mile)
  • Combining shipments and/or deliveries
  • Building loads
  • Tendering -- where applicable
  • Selecting the service provider

Once transportation scheduling is complete the order may be updated with the latest delivery information and a notification (Schedule Change) may be send to the sending and/or receiving parties.

Use Cases

Notes

Many companies (Shipper) perform only a light version of this process as they have outsourced transportation. The transportation service provider will likely perform most of these tasks instead of the Shipper.
