Third-Party Logistics (3PL)
Differentiate your business with speed, efficiency and service.
Third-party logistics operations have become many businesses’ secret weapon -- around 80% of Fortune 500 companies outsource a portion of their logistics operations to 3PLs, providing an increasing array of services to their clients. With more shippers tasking 3PLs with managing their fleets comes increasing pressure for those fleets to perform more efficiently, operate with lower costs, and exceed customer service expectations. This is easier said than done, so savvy 3PL fleets are increasingly looking to next-generation dispatching and routing software, whether tackling long-haul or the last-mile routes.
Like other successful delivery operations, high-performance 3PL fleets must:
Efficiently execute planned routes
Respond rapidly to last-minute orders
Have fleetwide visibility for dispatchers
Let customers know when to expect their deliveries
Leverage drivers’ expertise
Optimize performance for maximum profitability fleet efficiency
But, for many 3PLs, traditional route optimization software lacks the flexibility and responsiveness to meet the their daily challenges. Wise Systems can help. Wise Systems’ Autonomous Dispatch and Routing platform quickly brings 3PL fleets to a higher level of performance, developing robust schedules across the fleet and expertly managing them to optimize performance and efficiency. Wise:
Provides dispatchers with a real-time view of their fleet, along with the power to add new appointments to driver schedules. New schedules instantly appear on driver mobile devices -- all without any phone calls.
Constantly monitors route progress and alerts dispatchers and drivers when it detects delays in the original planned route. Wise then automatically adjusts the schedule to avoid delays and maximize efficiency.
Helps fleets improve customer service with easy-to-use applications that let dispatchers, drivers, and customers communicate important information, including ETA and route status.
Uses machine learning algorithms to learn from past fleet performance and build more efficient routes in the future.
