Project DescriptionIn order for freight to move from Point A to Point B, appointments must be made at the pickup and delivery locations. When appointments are scheduled incorrectly, it has costly downstream impacts throughout the shipment lifecycle. The goal of this project is to quantify what that cost is, defining the impact of a scheduling error while comparing the cost of an error for 'Customer A' against an error for 'Customer B'. A subsequent goal will be to establish a process to detect and eliminate the costliest of errors.
