Automating complex scenarios mandates supporting a rich set of policies and rules that direct allocation, routing and scheduling decisions. These rules should also reflect management's policies and directives.

Urbana provides unique tools to apply custom rules easily and flexibly, to fit various scenarios.

In practice, even seemingly simple scenarios involve many decisions that dispatchers apply intuitively, which the automation platform must support. E.g. to ensure fairness between drivers or contractors.

Examples of complex transportation scenarios:

  • Using an organic fleet combined with contractors via price-lists

  • Using a fleet with trucks of different capabilities, origins or costs

  • Working with drivers of different skills or preferences

  • Synchronized production and transportation (JIT)

  • Operating a coordinated hierarchical distribution network

  • Integrating deliveries, pick-ups and returns from the field

  • Transport of cargo/material types subject to compatibility rules

  • Executing time-limited or expedited tasks

  • Managing task prioritization and task re-cycling

  • Using articulated trucks

  • Managing trailers/chassis apart from tractors

  • Synchronized Cross-Docking

  • Drayage
