ArrowStream, a provider of supply chain management technology and logistics services for the foodservice industry, is offering its Inbound Transportation Management (ITM) software. ITM manages a supply chain by focusing on up-front planning, proactive margin management, root cause revenue, and cost analysis and integrated execution tools.
ITM results include:
•20%-30% logistics savings increase—regardless of size
•2%-5% inventory reduction
•1%-5% dock traffic reduction
•10%-15% reduction in carbon footprint
ITM combines four fully integrated components:
•Profitability Optimizer—This modeling system simultaneously stabilizes ordering patterns, incorporates network changes, and optimizes routing to balance inventory and achieve transportation savings for the network.
•Freight Converter—This seamless workflow and reporting module aligns organizations around true freight revenue growth potential and progress and accelerates activation of new freight under management.
•Freight Manager—This execution system integrates the preplanned system guidelines into an efficient freight management module for automatically building shipments and tracking progress and enables a focus on real-time issue resolution.
•Profitability Manager—This component provides proactive profitability management utilities, which are fully integrated with load execution, that alert margin loss before it occurs, enabling immediate root-cause analysis and savings recovery prior to load tender.
Implemented as a seamless compliment to an existing transportation management system (TMS), ITM’s pre-planning process and profitability management functions extend savings beyond what is captured via traditional freight execution systems. ITM can be implemented as a holistic planning and transportation management system (TMS) and provide a freight execution system fully embedded within its profitability management toolset.
