Breaking down silos to fill the gap between transportation planning and execution

Bridging the gap saves businesses millions on transportation spend

ProvisionAI, the only provider of a patented optimized replenishment transportation scheduling solution, discusses breaking down operational silos to fill the gap between transportation planning and execution. ProvisionAI’s LevelLoad solution combines holistic network optimization, smart early tendering, and load-size maximization to create optimal schedules and loads that result in lower costs and better fulfillment rates.

“Often supply planners schedule replenishment, but don’t consider the impact on transportation, the ship site, or the receiving location. They leave operations scrambling to meet what they are told is “must go” shipments — if they don’t go customers won’t get what they ordered,” says Thomas Moore, Founder and CEO of ProvisionAI. “The reality is that not everything is needed immediately, or, with some look-ahead planning, product could have been pre-positioned. At the same time the number of available trucks has been considered unlimited — but at what price in cost and service? So, by acting independently in its own silo, planning creates all the conditions for incremental cost and service failures.”

ProvisionAI closes the gap between planning and execution by evening out shipment schedules within network constraints. ProvisionAI’s LevelLoad analyzes supply patterns to identify spikes in demand, then adjusts the need date for product that is likely to be in short supply by bringing the demand forward while pushing less-needed requirements back.

LevelLoad can also submit a “placeholder” stock transfer order to secure early tendering to reserve needed carrier capacity. This smoother transportation plan enables a higher adoption of loads by preferred carriers, along with being able to reserve trucks further in advance. Because the actual contents of the “placeholder” stock transfer are not defined until just before shipping, the most urgent product from the latest supply planning solve is sent. It also respects labor, storage space, and truck availability constraints.

“Just moving shipments around is not an option for companies with many lanes and hundreds of shipments daily“ says Moore. “LevelLoad can analyze the needed shipments and make recommendations across hundreds of lanes so that shipments run smoothly and on time for a lower cost.”

ProvisionAI's innovative solution harnesses the power of demand and supply-planning systems and combines transportation data with the overall network's constraints. It performs daily optimization and generates a globally optimized replenishment transportation schedule, recommending early trucking capacity reservations across the entire network. This approach creates a smooth, optimized flow of products throughout the supply chain. And it saves money while increasing customer-order fill rates.
