Application of Transportation Models:
1. Transportation Management solution allow importers exporters and logistics providers to manage the spiralling costs associated with shipping by sea and airfreight.
a. Transportation models providing a centralized repository of all air and ocean service contracts online logistics teams can make better informed carrier selection decisions improve productivity and identify opportunities to lower transportation spend based on accurate total freight costs including all applicable surcharges and assessorial.
b. Non vessel Owning common Carriers ( NVOCCs) and carriers to automate service contracts control busy side costs sell side margin respond faster to customer quotation requests and dramatically improve sales effectiveness to close more new business and grow market share.
c. Proposal builder uses transportation models to better manage and control critical freight rate information improve quoting accuracy reduce over head costs and respond faster to new customer opportunities. Proposal Builder makes it easier for us to analyze customers requirements to build multiple routing and service scenarios prepare pricing for each alternative generate and deliver as customized proposal and analyze win loss trend a over time.
Transportation models are used in transportation network i ,e, to electricity over electrical distribution systems. For any such physical network the flow coming into any intermediate node needs to equal the flow going out of that node. Bollobas characterizes this constraint in term of Kirchhoff current law.
Transportation models being investigated predominantly in the defence sector. It is also seeing application in such field as national air and auto transportation and space exploration.
Other applications where it can be applied include health care design of the internet and software integration.
