Making the case for Transportation Management System….a BluJay Solutions white paper


This article is brought to you by Retail Technology Review: Making the case for Transportation Management System….a BluJay Solutions white paper.

There was time when shippers were able to run their transportation networks with a few human resources, a couple of spread-sheets, and a reliable phone line.

In a world where supply chains have become increasingly complex and global in nature, managing with spread-sheets and phone conversations with carriers are no longer viable options.

Shippers need a robust, always-available transportation management system (TMS) that not only handles the orchestration of multiple freight modes domestically and internationally, but also optimises activity in a way that reduces costs and meets delivery targets.

According to TechTarget, a TMS facilitates interactions between an organisation’s order management system (OMS) and its warehouse management system (WMS) or distribution centre (DC).

Defined by Gartner as a system used to plan freight movements, do freight rating and shopping across all modes, select the appropriate route and carrier, and manage freight bills and payments, a TMS serves a vital role in supporting the high volume of omni-channel, e-commerce, and traditional freight movements around the globe.

Download this white paper to see how a software as a service (SaaS), multi-tenant transportation management system puts power and efficiency into the hands of any company that wants to cut freight costs, improve visibility, and optimise activity in today’s competitive business environment.
