The specialists in practice saw how the system works, in particular, one of the system modules - “Forecasting demand for freight transportation”.
Using big data technologies, this module in the IPS system allows to conduct analysis on multicollinear dependence of historical data on cargo transportation with a variety of macroeconomic indicators (gross domestic product, standard of living, level of cargo nomenclature production, etc.), to analyze and make a forecast calculation for the next 5 years based on the data obtained. Thus, a forecasting model of cargo transportation is created in the form of volume and turnover, in the context of various nomenclatures and messages types for the next years.
