Mojo - Transportation Optimization
The magic of Mojo starts with the data you use every day to move freight. Actual current rates, approved carriers, specified capacities, transit times, and other available data is fed into Mojo to produce realistic and executable load plans. Orders from anywhere in the world from multiple customers, locations or vendors can be combined into multi-pick/drop movements, continuous move shipments, backhauls, and even pooling scenarios.
Import Current Shipments and Rates into Mojo
You can easily import your current shipments to Mojo from the TMS, your ERP, WMS or from a spreadsheet. Mojo will automatically determine the most cost effective way to consolidate and route your loads.
Configure Optimization Parameters
You can easily establish parameters for Mojo so it'll optimize according to your business practices – across all modes, including Parcel, LTL, TL, Rail, Intermodal, Air Freight, Ocean and Multimodal. For example, you can consider pooling points and backhaul opportunities. Mojo will even optimize across multiple modes and international shipments. Mojo will identify shipments that should be a parcel shipment or consolidated with others onto a multi-stop truckload. It'll also determine the optimal ship dates and delivery appointments based on carrier resources, available docks and delivery windows.
Get Rapid Results
Mojo will analyze all the possible ways to optimize your loads while you wait. It'll then provide you with a thorough explanation of how it organized your shipments in the most optimal way given the parameters you gave it. Mojo will show the cost, mileage and CO2 emissions reduction for the planned shipments compared to point-to-point loads. Each load itinerary will be described in detail and you'll have the opportunity to make detailed adjustments if necessary.
To perform some 'what-if' analysis on your plan, just adjust an optimization parameter and re-run the optimizer to see the difference. Mojo will save your initial run and show you the effect of your change(s).
Upload Optimized Results to the TMS
When the loads are optimized to your satisfaction, one click sends them to the TMS to be distributed to operational personnel throughout the network. Mojo is integrated with the MercuryGate TMS but is also available as a stand-alone application. It can be easily configured to share information with any transportation management system.
