Combating Transportation Costs and Challenges with a TMS
Capacity constraints, driver shortages, government regulations and robust economic conditions drove up logistics costs in 2018 and applied rarely seen pressure on supply chains.
Companies are seeking new ways to reduce costs, while securing necessary capacity and maintaining high levels of service to increasingly demanding customers. Fortunately, today’s transportation management (TM) platforms provide organizations with greater visibility, intelligence and control over their supply chains than ever before.
Navigating the supply chain challenges of today requires timely, accurate and holistic visibility into a company’s transportation operations. But that doesn’t mean access to more spreadsheets containing old data; instead, success relies on a shipper’s ability to view the entire network in real time and easily access critical, actionable information.
