OPTIMIZATION OF PARCEL SIZES MAXIMIZED SPACE UTILIZATION
A large health and beauty manufacturer was challenged by a need to reduce the void space in parcels leaving one of the distribution centers. Minimize so-called “shameful” shipments (almost empty boxes).
We utilized our optimization algorithms from the Optimus 4.0 platform. Optimus 4.0 is an enterprise software platform that optimizes a wide range of complex operations within minutes, guarantees business rule compliance, saves costs, and scales up your business. Therefore Optimus 4.0, we build and deploy resource and asset scheduling software solutions, versatile and robust enough to tackle any issue.
On the top of the platform, we built an intelligent software tool that optimizes the number and dimensions of parcels using historical data as a reference. By optimizing the parcel sizes, we reduced the void-fill ratio by 33% and saved the company more than 10% on packing material.
