SmartCAE Lane Risk
You want to send a product down a new shipping lane and don't know, whether your packaging will keep your product safe? What temperatures should you expect on a given shipping lane? And which packaging option will be the safest and cheapest, at the same time?
SmartCAE Lane Risk digitally sends digital twins of shipping systems down any kind of shipping lane. Ambient temperatures are automatically calculated, based on historical data. With just a click you can send a digital test shipment. Study effects of varying temperatures, due to seasonal, monthly, and diurnal variations. Analyze worst case scenarios, assess temperature excursions, compare different shipping systems, and optimize Total Cost of Ownership.
Quantify the risk of temperature excursion for a specific packaging on a specific lane.
Include any packaging solution on the market.
Use any transportation lane worldwide.
Accelerate qualification: digital lane risk assessments provides results in a matter of hours.
Transparent and independent comparison of different packaging options and service levels.
How it works
Define the Shipping Lane
What is the start and destination of your shipping lane? Is the package put into a warehouse along the way? What happens, if a flight is cancelled — will the product still survive?
Define the shipping lane by setting locations and durations of your transport segments in SmartCAE Lane Profiles. Or simply import lane data from your favorite logistics managment system.
Monthly, Daily or Worst Case Shipments?
What's the probability that your product survives, for your specific packaging and lane? Do you want to know before making any expensive physical test shipments?
Determine on exactly how many days in the last years your product would have been safe, as a proxy for future shipments. Or go with a more qualitative approach and study the performance for monthly worst cases. Simulate your shipments with our Lane Risk.
Analyze the Results
Assess the risk of your shipping lane. Will you have to use different packaging solutions for different months of the year? What would be the best combination of shipping systems throughout the year, in order to optimize the Total Cost of Ownership? What's the quantitative probility of failure when using one packaging solution?
Get statistically robust answers, based on thousands of digital shipments, more than you can achieve with physical test shipments alone. And be ready to get your answers within a few hours!
