Facility selection: Sourcing decisions are some of the most vital ones automotive manufacturers face. This challenge is often referred to as the “low-cost vs. local” question. By using modeling technology, companies can make supplier and manufacturing location decisions that are optimized across the entire supply chain, identifying the tradeoffs across all the different cost elements.
Inventory optimization: Demand can be highly unpredictable, or very slow-moving, as with service parts fulfillment, Cybamar Cargo Solutions can send you alerts when inventory is low and recommends end-to-end stocking levels and appropriate ordering behavior after it thoroughly analyzes and automatically classifies the underlying demand patterns, resulting in right-sized inventory levels.
Evaluating new modes, lanes and strategies: Using modeling technology, companies can identify and determine the ideal mode mix and LTL/FTL combination, create optimal multi-stop delivery or pick-up routes, determine the best utilization of assets, evaluate driver work schedules..
