What is Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS)?

Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) refers to a system or software tool used to optimize the planning and scheduling of shipping operations.  


APS systems can be used to plan and schedule a wide range of shipping activities, including the movement of goods between ports and terminals, the allocation of shipping vessels and containers, and the scheduling of loading and unloading operations.


By providing real-time data and analytics, APS systems can help shipping companies and freight carriers to make informed decisions about resource allocation and optimize their operations for maximum efficiency.
