Abstract:
Transportation, or the process of transferring materials, goods, and services from one location to another, is becoming of increasing importance in logistics optimization and supply chain management. With expanding development, management, and application of database technology and information systems, enterprises can use statistical and data mining techniques to trace out their transportation patterns. The results help reveal and highlight hidden trends, changes, and correlations which may help identify opportunities for improvements in both transportation and the overall supply chain network.
