Transport Management System
A Transportation Management System (TMS) is a logistics software that helps businesses plan, execute, and optimize the physical movement of goods, both incoming and outgoing, and taking costs under control by providing financial visibility, enabling complex transportation calculations.
TMS Users perform five main tasks on a TMS:
Plan shipments for goods according to customer’s order,
Create transport orders to organize transportation by assigning a carrier/truck,
Track its movement from loading to delivery,
Financial calcualtions of the transportation cost and payments,
Communicate transportation data to government systems to make business compliant as per the local regulation.
The broader goals of using a TMS are to improve shipping efficiency, gain real-time supply chain visibility, ensure customer satisfaction and more importantly, effective cost management and cost reduction.
