Business Intelligence for Logistics
Transform your logistics data into actionable insight
A company can’t truly understand how its transportation logistics works without data — loads of data. The business science of transportation logistics is built on cold, hard metrics in the same way that accounting is built on dollar signs and HR is built on people. But here’s the problem. Data on its own can’t get the job done. The deeper challenge of transportation logistics isn’t just about collecting and storing data — it’s about turning that data into actionable insight. You have to know what to do with all those numbers.
How are you using your transportation/logistics data today? Is your data languishing in poorly understood spreadsheets that no-one sees or uses? Or is it fueling productive discussions about how to make better business decisions, not just in logistics but across your entire organization?
IL2000’s approach to transportation data goes further than a weekly data dump. IL 2000’s BI dashboards transform your transportion data into information with a unique suite of analytical tools that offer deep insight and enhanced visibility across every corner of your operation.
Here’s how IL2000’s BI Dashboard will make your company smarter
- Connect the past with the present. Seamlessly integrate historical data into your existing system. Gain a more nuanced approach to managing your time-sensitive business cycle, set accurate achievement benchmarks and efficiently allocate resources.
- Shed light on previously hidden opportunities. Analyze your data for hidden trends: Confirm or falsify hypotheses, pinpoint missed opportunities, identify new markets.
- Have more objective, fact-driven conversations with reporting tools that build a clear and practical link between logistics and the rest of your organization — from accounting and finance to operations, procurement, purchasing, and even customer service.
- Here’s a small sample of the kinds of reports you can produce:
- GL account coding.
- Freight accrual.

- Freight expenses by company location, vendor, or customer.
- Lost opportunity cost and operator compliance.
- Year-over-year outlook, time period comparisons.
- Carrier compliance and delivery statistics.
