Unifying the Private Fleet with Purchased Transportation

Achieving Lower Costs and Higher Service via Dynamic, Omni-Mode Integration of Private Fleet with For Hire Operations.

The perennial challenge for private or dedicated fleet is to continuously find new ways to take cost out of the operation, while enhancing customer service. Decisions about when and how to use 'for hire' services vs. the private fleet are often made using static rules (such as distance from the DC) during the planning phase. Conversely, unplanned last-minute events can also result in suboptimal decisions, expediting, and higher costs. This paper discusses a more promising approach that is emerging: taking the dynamic and holistic approach of looking at fleet and for hire together.
