Key Aspects of Transportation Planning, Execution and Modeling Enhanced in JDA's Latest Software
Released: 26th April 2013
Publisher: Spark Communications

Scottsdale, Ariz. – April 25, 2013 – JDA® Software Group, Inc., The Supply Chain Company®, today announced the release of its latest version of JDA Transportation & Logistics Management, the company’s most significant transportation management system (TMS) release to-date. Transformative innovations featured in JDA Transportation & Logistics Management include advancements in end-user interactivity, global logistics capabilities and localized routing.

The latest version of JDA Transportation & Logistics Management features significant enhancements to JDA Transportation Manager, JDA Transportation Planner and JDA Transportation Modeler, addressing all critical aspects of transportation planning, execution and modeling. The solution set is part of JDA eight, the recently announced JDA solution release built on a platform that brings together more than 30 different products, unifying supply chain management, optimization and business analytics for deployment in the cloud.

“The new JDA Transportation & Logistics Management is game-changing for our customers in several key areas,” said Fabrizio Brasca, vice president, global logistics at JDA Software. “We’ve re-engineered the way end-users interact with our solution allowing them to leverage greater amounts of actionable data quickly and intuitively to make better decisions. From a capabilities standpoint, JDA has broken down siloes across intercontinental and local transportation patterns, allowing customers to drive the most value out of their available assets, increase agility and ensure the optimal balance between customer service and cost in complex, global supply chains.”

JDA Transportation & Logistics Management allows organizations to:  

  • Leverage actionable data to increase employee performance, ROI:
    JDA Transportation Manager, the execution application of JDA’s latest transportation release, features the JDA Transportation Smartbench, a new user interface that empowers users to leverage greater amounts of actionable data to make better informed, real-time decisions. The JDA Transportation Smartbench segments, filters and displays data in ways that are meaningful to the user, allowing users to identify planning exceptions and access navigation capabilities to resolve exceptions in the most efficient, cost-effective manner.
  • Optimally balance capacity and bookings for global logistics moves:
    JDA Transportation & Logistics Management supports the ability to optimize and manually generate bookings of multiple containers and to tender to ocean carriers. Bookings can be rated and rate shopped and support full ability to adjust sailings, equipment types and carriers alongside adding and removing containers on the booking. JDA Transportation & Logistics Management supports rating and scheduling of both direct-to-door and port-to port-rates. This allows all contract types to be represented in a single, dynamic global optimization and execution flow. JDA Transportation Manager works in conjunction with JDA Transportation Planner to improve global planning and execution by enabling dynamic equipment selection while maximizing ocean carrier capacity commitments and minimizing total cost.
  • Remove silos in localized routing, execution to drive most value out of available assets:
    Users can now execute routing movements at a granular street-level within JDA Transportation & Logistics Management to drive the most value out of available assets for both inbound and outbound moves. Private and dedicated fleet execution can represent loads and continuous moves that consider improved distance considerations, resulting in improved stop sequencing. These types of loads can be executed alongside long haul fleet movements and contract carrier movements in a single workflow, promoting improved cost savings and utilization of fleet equipment. 

Additional insights on JDA product announcements and innovations will be presented at FOCUS 2013, JDA’s annual global conference that will take place May 5-8 in Orlando, Fla. For more information or to register for the event, please visit
