The two-wheeler and three-wheeler manufacturer has selected IBM’s ILOG Transportation Analyst solution to map trucking routes for timely delivery to its various dealerships, said a press release.
The ILOG software helps determine the best possible pickup and delivery dates, based on various constraints related to route and distance, it further claimed.

“We were looking to improve on the timelines of the delivery of our products to the dealerships. We are confident that IBM’s solution will help us arrive at faster delivery times through better truck route planning. We have chosen to deploy the solution as it will also help us bring greater cost efficiencies in transportation and logistics processes,” said a TVS Motors spokesperson.

We believe that our ILOG Transportation Analyst solution will provide TVS the value addition it its needs to improve on transport times and costs,” said Dulles Krishnan, director, IBM Commerce Solutions.
