Provide Drayage Assignment Optimization

This process shall be responsible for determining optimal routing for drayage freight requests. This process shall accept request for bookings from the Provide Drayage Shipper Booking Interface and match that with routing information of the available vehicle fleet. This process shall request available resources for short-haul freight movements from the Provide Freight Operations which will return the available capacity ready to be dispatched. This process shall then provide the Monitor Freight Drayage Equipment Route function with data on the routing parameters to be used in its routing algorithms in order to optimize the freight movements in a way that minimizes the number of empty carries to and from an intermodal terminal. It shall be possible for this process to include details of the cargo to be picked up and/or dropped off at each point along the route. This process shall receive inputs from Fleet and Freight management systems on the status of the assignments and any exceptions that have to be taken into account.
