Transport Management System Definition

The key for any business to be ahead of the competition is to ensure prompt and unscathed delivery, inbound as well as outbound, of their products or materials. Undoubtedly, it requires supervision of even the minutest details from choosing a carrier to the route taken. A well developed Transportation Management System (TMS) is typically a subset of the supply chain management of an enterprise and assists an enterprise in taking away the load from their shoulders and manage transport from origin to destination efficiently and reliably.

An extensive TMS software not only helps in choosing the best mode and route of transport for international as well as domestic transportation but also manages to track transportation in real time, load optimization, freight audit, and payment along with several other functions. But that is not all. The primary objective of companies for employing a TMS is to reduce the cost of freight. As an application, it provides several forms of optimization by processing and analyzing the existing data, which is not provided by any other supply chain management system. It provides the user with leverage to gain maximum ROI from the business as well as ensuring customer satisfaction by continually imparting flawless deliveries.
