Optimize your less than truckload (LTL) business decisions
Use decision optimization for pickups, linehaul movements, and delivery of shipments to increase your profits and improve service.
Optimize your less than truckload (LTL) operations
Looking for ways to reduce operating costs, but don't know how?
Most LTL carriers use legacy systems that make decision-making a manual process for hundreds of planners and dispatchers. With no alerts about future problems and anticipation of hotspots, operations are held back and carriers lose money due to inefficiency.
Optym’s solutions help LTL carriers make strategic network decisions, run daily operations smarter, cut costs and increase profits.

HaulSuite is a portfolio of sophisticated and purpose-built SaaS solutions designed to solve some of the biggest challenges facing LTL carriers today. Minimize waste and maximize profit from the first mile to the last, and everything in between with HaulSuite.
Decision Optimization for LTL operations
- Optimize Shipment Routing
- Optimize Driver Assignment
- Optimize Pickups and Deliveries
- Optimize LTL Network
With optimization algorithms, LTL carriers can consolidate shipments across multiple destinations into loads and assign drivers to these loads to minimize shipment cost and improve service quality.
Determining driver bids and assigning those to drivers can be a time-consuming and a painstaking task. Optimization techniques can help you automate this process and reduce empty driver miles.
Maximize driver utilization and minimize miles driven in pickup and delivery moves. Optym’s solutions enable you to automate P & D routing so operations can be performed with the minimum number of drivers traveling the fewest miles.
Every LTL carrier wants to optimize its hub-and-spoke network. With Optym’s solutions, you can easily identify optimal hub locations, hours of operations, and how shipments should be routed so service levels are met at the lowest possible cost.
Reduce Operating Costs by 5%
LTL carriers can consolidate shipments of loads and better assign drivers, reducing linehaul costs through the use of Optym’s LTL solutions. Carriers also minimize pickup and delivery costs through optimized routing. Optym’s optimization techniques can reduce a carrier’s operating cost by as much as 5%.
Adapt Agilely to Changes
From terminal shutdowns due to flooding, disruptions from COVID-19, or a sudden surge in volume due to new business, Optym’s LTL software solutions enable LTL carriers to react quickly to sudden changes in operations. Easily adapt shipment routes and minimize the impact of disruption on your business with the power of optimization.
Continually Optimize Your Network
As origin-destination volumes change, your hub-and-spoke network must be reoptimized to run at its best. Optym’s LTL software enables LTL carriers to keep their network running most efficiently while conditions change. This results in lower costs, better service to customers and higher profits for LTL carriers.
