Inventory Location Management

In day-to-day operations, Transportation Planners are often confronted with different challenges:

  • Maximize the number of FTL deliveries at the minimum possible cost;
  • Local out-of-stock: one or more products are unavailable at one or more of the stock locations; and
  • Global out-of-stock: one or more products are unavailable at any of the stock locations.

The Eyefreight Inventory Location Management Module resolves these situations by:

  • Identifying the ideal stock location from which to deliver a product, based on maximizing the number of FTL deliveries at the minimum possible cost;
  • Proposing intracompany product transfers for shipment consolidation purposes;
  • Creating an intracompany transfer containing missing products;
  • Re-allocating a complete order to a plant with all requested product in stock; and
  • Clearly identifying orders that are undeliverable and highlighting the reason why, so Planners can coordinate with Customer Service.
