NTT DATA’s Supply Chain Transportation Strategy & Transformation can help you evaluate your transportation management organization, systems and processes to improve your overall transportation performance.

Our Transportation Systems Evaluation, Selection and Implementation service helps you identify, evaluate and implement the technologies best suited to meet your company’s needs and quickly realize value from your investment. Some of these technologies may include transportation management systems, routing and scheduling, freight payment and audit, visibility, connectivity or reporting.

Our Transportation Mode and Fleet Analysis consulting services can help you model your existing operations, evaluate and understand the impacts of your customers’ ever-increasing service demands and ultimately design a high-performance transportation network that improves your competitiveness and cost position.

Our Procurement and Bid Optimization capabilities combine our expertise in both transportation and sourcing with the effective use of advanced technologies to determine the business-optimal assignment of carriers to your logistics network. Spanning all domestic and international modes — truckload, less-than-truckload, intermodal, heavy-weight air, ocean, and small parcel — our methodology captures, models and considers all relevant factors, including line haul rates, accessorials, seasonality, service levels and capacity commitments.

Our Ocean Buying Group provides the market stability and leverage typically awarded only to large shippers, allowing your organization to remain competitive without the high costs typically associated with smaller levels of ocean transport — all without the need to change your current process.

With ecommerce becoming a cornerstone of the economy, the expectations of customers regarding product availability and delivery windows have increased dramatically. More than ever, selecting the right carrier proves critical to ensuring you retain customers and protect the integrity of your products and company.

Our Last-Mile Strategy and Optimization team can navigate this complexity and help establish a comprehensive final-mile delivery program or enhance an existing one.
