A better global logistics strategy

Infor Nexus Transportation Management delivers powerful supply chain and transportation visibility with global planning, optimization, and performance management across multimodal, multi-leg, multi-stop product journeys.

As part of the Infor Nexus supply network , this collaborative supply chain platform captures the daily transport decisions made across business units, carriers, and 3PLs to drive continuous service improvement and total freight spend management in global enterprises.

Transport planning visibility

  • See transportation plans across multiple legs, modes, and service providers for agile response to exceptions.
  • Drive continuous improvement—compare actual execution details against optimized plans and costs.
  • Improve cost containment, 3PL, and carrier performance with intelligent itineraries and projected freight spend.

Universal, multimodal rating

  • Control freight spend with a centrally managed, multimodal rating engine populated directly from contracts.
  • Rate new shipments accurately at the time of tender or booking for valuable freight accruals.
  • Improve organizational and logistics partner compliance through an available API for rating as a web service.

Transportation planning and optimization

  • Consolidate and plan shipments beginning at origin and across multiple modes and geographies.
  • Optimize carrier selections and routing.
