Does a good job for automatization, bulk planning. This offers better chances for cost improvement and costs reduction or savings. Also the ability to have multiple service providers participating in a spot bid offers better chances to get an offer and a better cost. In addition, Parcel is not [Oracle Transportation Management Cloud]'s strongest point.
