JDA Transportation states that JDA Software Group recently announced it has created new capabilities to help companies improve their shipping strategies and decisions.
“In today’s omni-channel selling environment, competitive pressures have never been more intense — and customers have never been more demanding,” Fabrizio Brasca, vice president of solution strategy for Intelligent Fulfillment at JDA Software, said. “In planning loads and scheduling deliveries, companies want to meet ambitious customer service goals — but, at the same time, they need to recognize and honor real-world execution constraints. They also need to protect their profit margins by making decisions that balance service optimization with cost control.”
The capabilities were added in light of the changing transportation industry, which has new cost and service pressures thanks to omni-channel selling. JDA plans to balance the tension between internal capacities and external customer promises in order to improve the company’s overall efficiency. The new capabilities will help level agility and resiliency with customer demands.
“The enhancements to the JDA Transportation portfolio in this new release provide companies with exclusive new capabilities that allow them to make more intelligent fulfillment decisions,” Brasca said. “For example, for the first time JDA has introduced a way to dynamically split shipments concurrent to routing to improve load efficiency. Another exclusive capability is using warehouse aware, item definitions to build more exact loads, so that resources are utilized optimally. These are game-changing software functionalities that ensure JDA customers are using every inch of available space, and every minute on the clock, to best advantage.”
