Network Optimization

Where is a product made and how does it get to the customer? For multi-tiered logistics networks, this quickly becomes quite a complex matter.

XCargo’s network optimization finds the most cost-efficient flow through your network, while meeting demand and taking warehouse capacities, hubs, and production plants into account.
