What People are Saying
“Optimizing both profitability and reliability will drive significant value to our business, whilst maintaining and enhancing the quality of our schedules for our customers.”
Optym has a highly talented team of researchers and developers that are capable of building simulation/optimization-based systems fairly quickly. I have a great deal of faith in their capabilities and expect to use their services again should a similar need arise.
“With SkySYM, we will better understand the impact that different network designs have on our operational performance. We are very pleased with the results we are seeing.”
“HaulPLAN provides us the ability to continually review ways to improve our network from both a cost and or service perspective. It can complete what-if studies with ease that allows you to determine the best improvements to implement within the network.”
Optym’s team transitioned the model from design to implementation within the proposed timeline. … CSX Intermodal has used the Optym’s model to analyze our terminal operations with great success on identifying bottlenecks and guiding improvements in the terminal layout and operating plan. We plan to use the model to analyze existing operations and for planning future terminal designs.
“Our relationship with Optym has been a partnership where we are working together to develop new tools to enhance our unique and complex network optimization capabilities.”
“The main value HaulPLAN adds to our organization is time savings. Easy to make plan changes and publish into our line haul network in a short amount of time.”
“Blocking Optimizer (by Optym) has helped BNSF save double-digit million dollars a year in operating expense and reduced the time to create, evaluate, and implement design changes from weeks to days with fewer design personnel."
Partnering with the Florida-based optimization experts at Optym, we’ve have been working to deliver a leap forward in our schedule creation capability. Network Planning is thrilled with the results our collaboration with Optym has created ….. This tool is designed to allow us all to deliver on Southwest’s Vision: to become the world’s most loved, most flown, and most profitable airline. The sky is truly our limit – and SkyMAX will take us to a new and even higher altitudes!
“HaulPLAN assists in tactical and strategic planning so it is allowing us to make quality plans and have directional costing before making decisions either on a daily basis or on a long- term basis.”
Optym team understood our business, our unique way to run our operations, and modified/adapted their existing systems to incorporate our business practices. They are very flexible and adaptive. They are respectful of our team and possess an in-depth understanding of transportation networks. Their systems are graphically attractive, easy-to-use, and have a fast response time. Their IT capabilities are quite impressive.
We were very impressed by Optym team’s structured thinking, clear communication and extremely high-quality outputs. They consistently exceeded our expectations and developed models that performed much better than we imagined. The Optym team showed dedication to the project, were incredibly fast in their work, and stood behind their deliverables, supporting us on any issues or questions we ran into.
“HaulPLAN allows us to be more flexible or agile in our operations planning. In the past, when given a task to analyze the impact to our network we only had the time to come up with one plan. With HaulPLAN we are able to test various scenarios to find the best one. It also shows us operational improvements that would take us days to go through that amount of data to uncover.”
Optym used their two tools in performing several studies for us. It was an invaluable experience for me and my team as we continue to understand and optimize our network. The results of these studies will continue to guide us for several years and assist in strategic decisions requiring major capital expenses.
Optym’s network planning system demonstrated significant potential benefits in reducing empty repositioning costs (3% – 5%). It also showed that optimal repositioning of containers could increase asset utilization and that more loaded shipments could be handled with the same number of containers…. We have been very impressed by the Innovative scheduling team. The team is comprised of intelligent model designers and developers. They completed the project within the agreed-upon budget and within the timelines promised.
“HaulPLAN has endless possibilities to improve service, throughput, cycle, optimization, and costs.”

When I first met the Optym team, they told me that they provide exemplary customer service. These phrases are often spoken when trying to secure new business but rarely delivered. The Optym team has kept its promise delivering world class service to us at a competitive price while providing a sound ROI.
What impressed me most about the members of Optym team was that they understood our unique business operations within few weeks and quickly became an extension of our team. I was equally impressed with their ability to analyze the data and slice and dice in a variety of ways to derive business insights that we could benefit from. They exceeded our expectations in this project and provided an excellent return on our investment.
