Transportation Forecasting

Forecast your logistics needs with greater accuracy by incorporating sales and demand data to see the complete picture.

Lower Freight Costs with Transportation Forecasting

Plan transportation by lane, mode and class with the same sophistication as finished goods. e2open’s Transportation Forecasting application takes promotional and seasonal sales surges into account to help you more accurately predict your logistics needs.

Go from reactive to proactive with improved forecast accuracy:

  • Know Your True Transportation Needs
    Translating product demand forecasts—including promotional activities and seasonality—into precise transportation capacity requirements helps you understand your real needs.

  • Reduce Freight Costs
    Better planning accuracy and increased productivity means fewer expedited and spot shipments, improving on-time delivery rates and lowering freight costs.

  • Improve Carrier Collaboration
    Identifying gaps and proactively securing capacity fosters strategic relationships, helping your preferred carriers give you the best service at the lowest cost.

  • Increase Customer Satisfaction
    By delivering orders on time more often with fewer changes to planned delivery schedules, you develop better relationships with your customers.

  • Forecast Any Shipment
    A single application enables you to engage with multimode carriers around the world to reserve capacity and book or tender by lane, class or day.

  • Plan Downstream Resource Needs
    More efficient planning and staffing processes—complete with warehouse throughput projections—help you avoid last-minute changes to your established logistics network design.

  • Create Daily and Advance Forecasts
    Daily inbound and outbound plans that use the most up-to-date information improve your short-term projections. Mid-term forecasts help you plan transportation needs in advance.

  • Leverage Scenario Modeling
    ”What-if” scenario modeling lets you examine a range of potential futures to evaluate the viability of alternative plans.
