Using a transportation management system (TMS) as a centralized repository for logistics activities can produce many benefits for shippers. By partnering with a dedicated team of experts to assist with logistics management, shippers can save time and money due to increased control, improved transparency and streamlined processes.

Ten reasons why shippers should consider the centralization of standard logistics management through a TMS:

  1. Streamlining of processes across multiple shipping and receiving locations
  2. Preparation of shipping documents, including the bill of lading (BOL) and the proof of delivery (POD)
  3. Consolidated pickup and delivery confirmations, as well as communication and tracking of shipments
  4. Standardized freight audit and payment procedures to avoid billing errors
  5. Expert carrier negotiations as well as contract and tariff management to yield the best pricing possible
  6. Vast carrier network to offer clients comprehensive options and the ability to take advantage of backhauls
  7. Improved management of carrier selection and qualification, verifying that the carrier has cargo and liability insurance as well as a solid overall safety performance score
  8. Additional visibility to help improve the coordination between your customers and other internal departments, such as sales, operations, accounting and customer service
  9. Robust reporting capabilities to track historical data to plan for the future and proactively solve problems
  10. Support of a complete team of transportation professionals focused on superior customer service and cost control
