Global Transportation Management

Many organizations are turning to Transplace Managed Transportation Services (MTS) to help solve their logistical woes.

The arrangement works like this: a shipper contracts with Transplace to plan and execute freight moves on its behalf. Instead of the shipper’s own internal personnel planning and executing those moves, they are instead leveraged by Transplace to work on the shipper’s behalf.

North America

As the largest MTS provider in North America, Transplace has professional logistics experts on hand at all times to intervene and manage the logistics process with speed and consistency – resulting in better service, greater predictability and lower total costs.

According to ARC Advisory Group, MTS can save shippers between 2% and 10% on transportation spend. Transplace can also help shippers go a step further by offering our proprietary transportation management system (TMS) and other advanced solutions to leverage flexible software deployment models that automate previously manual processes.

With the digitization of the logistics industry, shipments are monitored by algorithms; capacity is secured via online automated auctions; and scorecards and KPI reporting are distributed automatically each and every day. With discussions of freight moving into the boardroom and becoming a greater focal point for many shippers, the argument in favor of MTS becomes even stronger. Here are some of the benefits of MTS as it relates to transportation and logistics managers and the c-suite:

  • Transportation and Logistics Managers – An MTS provider helps shippers save time and money by leveraging their providers’ transportation networks, prices, technology, capacity and economies of scale. Instead of juggling activities across 75 different carriers – plus their own network providers, many of which aren’t carrier- or routing dock-compliant – logistics pros simply have to work with a single partner.
  • Chief Financial Officers – As transportation becomes a larger line item in a CFO’s budget, an MTS provider combines world-class technology and freight management to take over the management of those networks and deliver ROI within a year or less.
  • Chief Executive Officers – With an eye on the bottom line, partnering with an MTS provider alleviates many of the business performance and operational headaches associated with transportation that were formerly handled in-house, draining time, staff resources and budget.


To advance your supply chain to the next level, you must be agile, leveraging centralized data warehouses and emerging technologies such as enhanced analytics and end-to-end, real-time supply chain visibility, to make faster and better business decisions.

When you no longer can improve carrier rates and you are ready for better balance, you must partner with a trusted advisor that has industry expertise, proven technology, deep data insights, and supply chain management to help you overcome cost, visibility, and fragmented data concerns.
