Logistics and transportation is a constantly evolving sector that requires efficient management methods due to its inherent complexity. Indeed, a supply chain is made up of industrial shippers who want to ship their merchandise through their network of transport service providers. The supply chain is therefore necessarily collaborative. This is where the TMS transport management tool is involved. 

Zoom in on what a TMS transport is. 

First you need to understand what TMS software is.

A TMS is first of all a management tool that ensures you a proactive follow-up on all your flows, whatever the channel. The TMS tool is designed to simplify the transport management of your operational teams: in this sense, the first added value of such a solution lies in the digitalization of transport processes. The aim is to achieve operational excellence and a clear improvement of your supply chain. 

Each step of the supply chain is managed by this transport management tool: from the sending and validation of transport orders to the various service providers, through the planning and optimisation of its schedules per site, not forgetting the execution of transport via real-time tracking. All these procedures and information are centralized on a single platform! 

Decision-making aid and thus control of transport costs

Automating and controlling transport processes with TMS inevitably leads to a considerable reduction in costs. 

The centralization of information and procedures saves financial and human resources. At the strategic level, as decision-making is more efficient, productivity gains lead to optimized customer satisfaction.

More and more companies are adopting a generic TMS to manage their transport flows and gain efficiency, but it is not necessarily adapted to their activities.

This collaborative tool will enable supply chain managers and freight forwarders to plan, book and monitor the successful completion of their transports.
