The LoadFusion Optimizer is a proven technology that has earned national recognition for its superiority in the field. With a beautiful interface earning wide acclaim from the installed base of users, no other freight/route optimization tools are nearly as easy and intuitive to use.

LoadFusion Optimizer is the only such tool to deliver a “Location Hours” visualization that shows load planners where each shipment is projected to arrive in relation to every location’s available delivery hours. This useful innovation dramatically reduces dwell times or deliveries arriving after scheduled windows.

With dual environments included in the subscription fee, users can engage in strategic supply chain “sandbox” modeling without disrupting orders already loaded into TMS. This feature also permits tactical routing in real-time for daily execution.
