Challenges in Landside Logistics

We know you try to reach the optimum and most efficient use of valuable resources, whether these are people, products or other assets. But on your journey meeting the objectives, we also know you will have to battle these core challenges:

  • Short delivery windows
  • Dynamic compartments
  • Time slots constraints
  • Variation in capacity
  • Delivery location

The planner is responsible for creating a plan, and hence the planner should always be in control. In our view, the first step is to create an environment in which the planner will have full transparency as to the current state of the planning. Due to a large number of planning variables, the optimal solution is highly dependent on soft, heuristic knowledge of expert planners & the availability of scattered, diffuse planning information.

Let Ab Ovo help you create the optimal outbound plan, calculate different planning scenario’s and provide insights into all outbound logistics. We will help you solve these puzzles and ensure you take the right planning decisions.
