Prophesy Adds Enhanced Round Trip Planning to ShipperSeries Software.
ENHANCED ALGORITHM OFFERS ADVANCED ROUTING OPTIONS TO USERS
(Bloomfield, CT – June 15, 2004) Prophesy Transportation Solutions, Inc, producers of the popular Prophesy ShipperSeries transportation management system have enhanced the product’s ability to produce highly efficient round trip routes. While round trip capabilities have always existed within ShipperSeries software, these routes can now be built more quickly and can also handle both drops and pickups, as well as back haul opportunities, which can save users thousands of dollars during each shipment cycle.
The new capability will allow users to design intelligent and cost effective routes with multiple drops in a round trip fashion, within minutes. The speed allows users to make last minute changes and still build the best loads with confidence. The software takes into consideration factors such as geography, state tariff differences and cost per mile, in order to allow the users to build the route best suited to their circumstances.
This functionality has also been enhanced to consider backhauls automatically, in the load optimization process, thereby ensuring the most efficient routing and utilization of vehicles for the entire operation.
“In this time of rising fuel prices and transportation-related expenses, trip optimization is at the top of the list for smart logistics managers,” said Prophesy President Edward J. Forman. “This enhanced feature of our ShipperSeries software will allow our users to optimize their round-trips and consequently save money on their bottom line.”
