Fleet Management: Private Fleet Planning and Execution Software

Many shippers use both commercial motor carriers and private fleets to reduce transportation logistics costs. Manhattan Associates Fleet Management solution is a single, enterprise-wide software system that creates an intelligent, centralized workflow for all your internal and external transportation management resources.

With detailed insight into your private fleet, our fleet management software can automatically recommend the optimal route, driver, tractor and trailer assignment based on hours of service, availability, compliance, seniority and service needs. Its centralized and holistic view of your transportation logistics and resources:

  • Optimizes use of both private and dedicated fleets
  • Minimizes transportation logistics costs by maximizing utilization of all transportation assets
  • Improves resource utilization through regulatory compliance, scheduling visibility and resource compatibilities
  • Issues real-time alerts
  • Offers integrated evaluation of costs and constraints
  • Provides flexibility to tailor costs and benefits to your transportation network
  • Enables enhanced decision support
  • Provides improved ability to manage exceptions

Often cited as the best in the transportation logistics industry, Manhattan’s Fleet Management solution excels in two particular areas: shipment planning and dispatch. The Shipment Planning function builds loads within the scheduling process and recommends resources for those loads. The Dispatch Re-Optimization feature continuously updates resource assignments with the latest information on resources and loads.

Both processes use the same dispatch model to create the most efficient run combination for the day. If fleet resources are deemed to be insufficient, Shipment Planning issues a warning and displays information about the hired resources required to meet shipping needs. Dispatch also issues alerts if resources are no longer available.
