Commercial shipping is more than simply moving goods from point A to point B. It is the preparation, orchestration, execution, and monitoring of physical goods movement in a highly dynamic process involving global networks of shippers and freight forwarders moving raw materials, components, and finished goods through global supply chains. To meet ever-increasing customer demands for greater transportation quality, all the moving parts must be managed with precision, speed, and versatility.
Companies need robust transportation management systems that allow not only a physical supply chain but also an information supply chain — the movement of data within an enterprise and among its partners — to transfer goods efficiently and ensure the organized movement of goods from origin to end-user.
Companies may use a transportation management system to help them organize their shipping processes. The following logistic and shipping tasks are automated by a TMS:
- Optimization of the route;
- Designing a network;
- constructing a load;
- Making a report;
- Management of orders;
- Auditing of freight.
Companies may use logistics management software to increase shipping quality, lower transportation costs, gain real-time insight into logistics processes, and improve customer service.
