Parcel Freight’s Role in Enterprise Transportation Management
An in-depth examination of how three highly successful logistics operations incorporate parcel shipments into their multimodal, multi-leg plans to minimize freight spend both domestically and worldwide
Tackling Transportation Management
With the transportation landscape becoming increasingly complex and global in nature, shippers, third-party logistics providers, and other entities involved in transporting goods need a reliable transportation management system (TMS) that can handle myriad different shipping methods.
Technology Delivers Cost Saving Solution
Major European for manufacturer uses a transportation optimization platform to mange an unusual order/demand profile environment, reduce transportation costs, cut down on CO2 emissions, and improve end-to-end supply chain visibility.

How a Single-Platform TMS Powers Logistics Services Companies to Success
Instituting A Culture Of Continuous Improvement in Transportation Management
Today’s global shippers and 3PLs are operating in dynamic business environments and under constant pressure to control costs and identify efficiencies. Many of these companies overlook the need for a robust Transportation Management System (TMS), and just one in four organizations fully leverages the features and functions of its system. It’s time to view TMS as a platform for innovation and continuous improvement.
The Value of Managing Global Transportation from a Single Platform
Intent on gaining visibility, saving money, and operating as lean as possible, today’s global shippers are increasingly turning to global transportation management systems that provide oversight of their supply chains from a single, online platform.
Small Brokers Compete for Big Business
How can small brokers compete and win big business? Winning means not just gaining new accounts, but also profitably meeting customers’ increasing needs. Scaling to meet bigger challenges can stretch any organization, so we must then ask: How can small brokers scale to meet the requirements of big business?
Armed with advanced cloud technology, not only can the small broker compete and match the capabilities of the larger broker at a competitive price, but also be that strategic partner, providing the extra, ongoing, superior customer relationship smaller brokers are known for.
The Single Platform Option in Transportation Systems
Today, a cloud-based TMS solution consists either of components that are woven together, or is a single-platform solution. We define a single platform as one that includes all the functions required by the user, across the whole process, without having to integrate separate components via a ‘consulting project.’ The single platform is inherently data-centric. This is an ideal state; but certainly, there are a few players whose goal is to provide it.
A single-platform approach becomes an important option for someone considering a technology purchase. In this article we want to differentiate a single-platform TMS from other offerings, delve into what this option is, and why it is important.
