Transportation Forecasting to Predict Your Logistics Needs and Lower Costs


Plan by lane, mode, and class with more precision so you can deliver better service and lower your freight costs. E2open Transportation Forecasting takes promotional and seasonal sales surges into account to help you more accurately predict your logistics needs.

Put transportation forecasting in the fast lane

Lost productivity and revenue

Planning can feel more like scrambling

How much carrier capacity will be required next week? While planners are typically aware of surges in volume weeks in advance, logistics managers can be the last to know, so orders cross the desk and teams are left scrambling for capacity. This lack of visibility stems from the disconnect between transportation management and the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process, undermining overall supply chain performance. The result is lost productivity and revenue.
