PLANNING TO ACHIEVE SUPPLY CHAIN INTEGRATION
We Make International Transportation Planning Faster and More Accurate

Cost-effective inbound freight routing requires the ability to wrangle multiple, complex considerations into a simple plan. Acuitive enables you to centralize the decision-making process for greater control and supply chain integration.

Our software lets you set the internal control parameters determining who approves what and when, cutting down on the steps and time needed to make decisions. One of our customers reported the number of steps required to make inbound routing decisions fell from more than 20 steps to two.

Next, we provide visibility and transparency so that all key stakeholders – forwarders, carriers, suppliers and internal functions (including Payables, Accounting, Budget and Cost Analysts) are in the loop via email and EDI, increasing the flow of communication and accountability.
