Transport Management Systems

TMS review, specification, testing and implementation

Transport Management Systems (TMS) are pieces of software enabling planning, management and execution of transport movements across the supply chain. Transport Management Systems are deployed to drive efficiencies and cost reduction of logistics movements. In addition to planning and executing deliveries a TMS is also capable of:

  • Shipment consolidation by creating routes, backhaul
  • Shipment status and tracking
  • Obtaining proof of delivery (ePOD)
  • Automated carrier selection based on price and service
  • Managing carrier performance
  • Providing real and accurate data that can be used to feed back into the planning processes
  • Reconciliation of invoices

Some modern systems also offer yard management, dock appointment scheduling and automated gatehouse functionality. A TMS is usually integrated with either the ERP or WMS, but, standalone options are also available.
