Cost savings with integrated material and transportation planning

4flow TORO (transport optimized release orders) is the new plug-in software for MRP optimization. The solution helps businesses integrate transportation optimization into material planning by considering critical factors including available lanes, transportation costs and equipment restrictions in the material planning phase.

With 4flow TORO, planners:

  • Eliminate silos in the supply chain
  • Ensure actionable planning results
  • Achieve transportation cost savings of up to 12%

From MRP run to transportation-optimized shipments

Thanks to its composable and easily adaptable architecture, 4flow TORO can be seamlessly integrated into existing ERP systems such as SAP.

4flow TORO considers parameters like transportation rates, capacity restrictions, route information and material master data to optimize shipments based on scheduling agreements.

The results from the standard MRP runs are transferred to 4flow TORO and immediately optimized based on transportation-relevant factors. After optional verification, the optimized schedule lines are transferred back to the ERP system.
