All-Knowing

We collect massive amounts of real-time big data from the global IoT to provide organizations real-time behavior of their end-to-end global supply chain from n-tier foreign supplier to customer door.

  • Across all modes of transportation — air, ocean, truck, rail and parcel.
  • Across all supply chain nodes – stuff you own and stuff you don’t own– inventory in-transit, in warehouses, in manufacturing facilities, at customer facilities.
  • Including the current and predicted risks surrounding shipments, inventory and assets — severe weather, natural disasters, port congestion, labor strikes, road construction, etc.

Real-Time

Our real-time insights are derived from massive live data streams that we collect from IoT devices around the world.

  • We collect, cleanse, normalize and process over 1 trillion events around the world every day.
  • These massive data streams come complete with our supply chain solution–our customers do not have to onboard carriers or source external data themselves.
  • Supply chain performance improvements from real-time IoT-based visibility, behavior and insights vs. latent EDI-based status updates are significant and demonstrable.

Predictive

We produce predictive insights that enable our customers to orchestrate just-in-time hand-offs between trading partners and supply chain nodes; identify and avoid supply chain risks and disruptions; and take advantage of opportunities that their competitors simply cannot see.

  • We produce predicted times of arrival for every shipment at every pulse point and supply chain node, factoring the impact of external events, carrier behavior, node behavior, etc.
  • Our predicted times of arrival are much more accurate than carrier provided or customer calculated ETAs.
  • We predict external disruptions–port congestion, labor strikes, severe weather, custom clearance bottlenecks, competitor actions–and identify the predicted upstream and downstream impacts on specific suppliers, shipments, supply chain nodes, customer orders, etc.

Prescriptive

We produce prescriptive and actionable supply chain recommendations that drive immediate and measurable supply chain performance improvements.

  • We recommend highly performing carriers on specific lanes based on our learned carrier behaviour models and predictive analytics.
  • We recommend alternate lanes, ports, airports or trucking routes based on predicted delays and disruptions.
  • We recommend alternate sources of inventry to fulfill dynamic demand.
  • We capture and report against the performance of initial customer-generated or planning system-generated plans vs. TransVoyant recommendations (e.g., the on-time performance of customer selected carrier vs. the on-time performance of TransVoyant recommended carrier).

Optimized

We produce supply chain recommendations that are optimized for service and profit.

  • We enable companies to dynamically allocate both moving and static inventory to dynamic demand, based on fulfillment cost, sales price and service level
  • We calculate and continuously re-calculate current and predicted lead times, capacity and variability which we feed to planning systems and inventory models to optimize inventory levels while maintaining / improving service levels
  • We help companies to minimize manufacturing change-overs, maximize warehouse throughput, and optimize price based on available supply and demand
