What is a Transportation Management System?

A transportation management system (TMS) is a logistics platform that is cloud-based and helps businesses plan, execute, and optimize the movement of both incoming and outgoing shipments.  TMS’s provide a solution for moving freight in all modes, as well as intermodal movements.  The software is not only functional but is easy to use and integrate into the workflow.

Improvement of Operational Efficiency

A TMS system will specifically increase operational efficiency as it allows you to optimize resources for shipments.  The software lets you book carriers, find paperwork, and detail all the necessary requirements to get the shipment to its destination.

The TMS software also documents each shipment, giving valuable insights into the transportation process, costs, and success rate.  Thus, by using the software it allows your company to make data-driven decisions to improve productivity and your bottom line.  The dashboard gives a complete picture of your operations.

Data tracking and analysis are a key component for any shipping plan, the platform aids in determining what aspects worked and which ones will need adjusting.

Reduces Time and Money

Using TMS’s your business will see an improvement in operational efficiency by making data-driven decisions.  The results will be significant cost savings.  A TMS will also reduce the amount of time spent on the shipping procedure as it automates the workflow and reduces the paper processes.  By having a TMS, it eliminates unnecessary hardware expenses.
