Time-Critical Shipments Speed Up
Calculating the optimal route for time-critical shipments used to take a nail-biting 30 minutes or longer. Thanks to a new routing solution, created by technology company Airspace, shippers can calculate the best path for transporting goods to their destination at the lowest cost and risk. The platform spits out results in less than one second—a game-changer for time-critical shipments, such as transporting organs for transplants. The solution provides greater transparency, as customers can monitor progress in real time.
Using distributed sensors, the router generates an expectation of where the order should be at any given time. If a flight is canceled, for example, the technology immediately establishes a new plan. The technology considers ground travel as well, accounting for traffic to and from nearby airports and the final destination.
