AssetMetrics – a predictive optimization system that suggests the optimal storage, resupply and maintenance strategy for empty containers for a shipping line or an intermodal operator.
- Predictive, cost-based empty assets repositioning scheme (for containers, trailers, wagons, pallets etc.)
- Optimal levels of “safety stock” at each location (based on a proper demand modelling)
- Predictive asset repair and maintenance strategy (integrated with the repositioning scheme)
Significant savings thanks to optimization:
- reduction of number of assets used
- transport cost reduction
- storage cost reduction
- maintenance at cost effective locations
- optimal usage of 3rd party assets
Transmetrics is an AI, predictive optimization Software-as-a-Service for the cargo transport industry. Product implementation consists of three steps: data cleansing, demand forecasting and predictive optimization. We use technologies like machine learning, data mining, predictive analytics and computer optimization to support your planning team in proactive and data-driven decision-making. We have extensive cargo transport knowledge and have been working with the leading players in the industry like DHL, DPD, ECS, Agility, CMA CGM, NileDutch, TIP Trailer Services and others.
Transmetrics offers an end-to-end solution
Data Loading and CleansingWe invest in artificial intelligence algorithms which can analyse your historical data, identify and improve the data quality issues such as missing events, missing values, misspellings etc. to a level which ensures significant transparency on operational inefficiencies.
Demand ForecastingBased on complete and cleansed historical data as well as the range of the external factors (e.g. seasonality, public holidays, weather, industry events etc.), we then generate accurate forecasts of upcoming container bookings in a given geographical location 8-12 weeks in advance, which enables you to take the right operational decisions in a proactive manner.
Predictive OptimizationWe help your planners and dispatchers to make data-supported decisions on optimal asset- repositioning, on the right levels of “safety stock” at each location and on a smart asset repair and maintenance strategy, which leads to significant cost cutting.
Transmetrics has a portfolio of products which includes NetMetrics (predictive capacity and network optimisation for courier, express and parcel businesses); AssetMetrics (predictive asset management for asset owners); WareMetrics (predictive human-resource management for warehouses).
