Save in platform and Scenario Comparison for Transport Optimization Plus, Milkrun Optimization Plus and Last Mile apps
Due to the overwhelming positive response to the Save in Platform and Scenario Comparison features, Log-hub has extended these capabilities to Milkrun Optimization Plus, Transport Optimization Plus, and Last Mile applications. The Save in Platform feature allows you to seamlessly save calculations from Excel-based supply chain apps directly on the Log-hub platform.

Scenario comparison – dashboard comparison for Center of Gravity app
The Scenario Comparison feature extends its capabilities to dashboards for the Centre of Gravity app, allowing you to compare key metrics in a single dashboard. By analyzing compared key metrics such as the number of centers, customers, scenario costs, and savings of various scenarios in a single dashboard, you’ll get greater transparency and enhanced overall decision-making efficiency.
Stepwise cost function in the Network Design Plus app
The stepwise cost function in the Network Design Plus app provides a more detailed and realistic modelling of warehousing costs for professionals in the supply chain industry.
For those familiar with the intricacies of warehouse costs, Log-hub’s Stepwise Cost Function revolutionizes network design calculations. By incorporating different fixed and variable costs based on weight or volume assigned to the warehouse, this tool enables a more precise and realistic determination of warehousing costs.
The Stepwise Cost Function empowers supply chain professionals to optimize network design by identifying the optimal number and locations of warehouses. It facilitates an understanding of cost efficiencies through centralization or decentralization of warehousing structures, and it allows for analysis of how variations in warehouse numbers and locations impact overall costs.
The idea to create the stepwise cost function was born from discussions and an input from one of Log-hub’s clients as a true testament of their commitment to help professionals in supply chain get state-of-the-art tools for their supply chain optimization projects.
More Refined Map of Australia in the Supply Chain Map App
