Regulatory Compliances

Many regions across the world are implementing regulations more than ever before, to limit vehicle emissions and promote sustainable transportation practices. nuVizz TMS's Route Optimization, Strategic /Territory planning tools helps businesses comply with these regulations by minimizing emissions and demonstrating a commitment to environmental responsibility.


Reduction in Mileage / Fuel Consumption - Green Logistics

By using advanced route optimization algorithms to optmize routes, vehicles can travel shorter distances, use less fuel, and emit fewer greenhouse gases. This reduction in fuel consumption helps lower carbon emissions, which is vital for combating climate change and reducing air pollution.


Encouraging Sustainable Transportation Modes

As climate change invariably leads to larger environmental disruptions in the form of storms, floods, harsh winters and summers; transportation must improve resiliency. Encouraging a sustainable transportation mode in a multi-tier shipping operation with a heterogeneous carrier network is a complicated challenge Build resilience in your supply chain by bringing in the full 360 degree Network Visibility through nuVizz TMS. It enables enterprises to collect information in real time and provide actionable insights to make changes in real time.


Optimized Fleet Management

For companies with fleets of vehicles, our Route Optimization software can help streamline operations by assigning tasks more effectively and minimizing empty miles. Enterprises can improve on executing time constrained deliveries through accurate predictive ETAs that reduce unnecessary vehicle trips and missed appointments. This leads to fewer vehicles on the road and decreased environmental impact.


Capacity and Territory Planning

nuVizz TMSs Strategic / Territory planning and Capacity Planning features have the capability to recommend optimal utilization of your vehicle capacities across your demand aggregation or pool points that will help decrease mileage and minimize expenses. Shippers and Carriers can enhance their cost efficiency by 10%-15%, as they strategically allocate their most effective resources to suitable geographical areas.


Reduce OS&D and Paperwork

Reduce your OS&D (shrinkage) and paperwork and improve your sustainability goals in multiple ways. Every item lost requires to be reproduced and redelivered. Enterprises can use nuVizz TMS's scanning solutions to minimize shrinkage and gain valuable insight into the delivery process. Paper manifests, bills of lading and POD documents require lot of paper and storage. eDocs and ePODs have lot of impacts on controlling deforestation.


Reporting on Scope 3 Emissions

As shippers launch initiatives for incorporating sustainability practices into their business, they expect their contracted carriers to report on Scope 3 emissions impact of their shipments. Carriers are expected to report on miles driven and other emissions related metrics for transporting goods on behalf of the shippers. Carriers may use their delivery assets for comingling deliveries done for multiple shippers. This makes it difficult to attribute miles driven for individual shippers. nuVizz's visibility and execution platform lets carriers track exactly how much distance was traversed for delivering goods on behalf of various shippers allowing carriers to satisfy their Scope 3 compliance reporting requirements. nuVizz platform provides reporting flexibility to include the minutest details of shipments from planning to execution lifecycle allowing them to meet their shipper's reporting requirements.
