Transportation Management Systems manage three key processes of transportation management:
1. Planification and DecisionTMS will define the most efficient transport schemes according to given parameters, which have a lower or higher importance according to the user policy: transport cost, shorter lead-time, fewer stops possible to insure quality, flows regrouping coefficient…
2. Transport follow-upTMS will allow following any physical or administrative operation regarding transportation: traceability of transport event by event (shipping from A, arrival at B, customs clearance…), editing of reception, custom clearance, invoicing and booking documents, sending of transport alerts (delay, accident, non-forecast stops…)
3. MeasurementTMS have or need to have a Logistics KPI reporting function for transport.
Various functions of a TMS:
Planning and optimising of terrestrial transport rounds Transportation mode and carrier selection Management of air and maritime transport Real time vehicles tracking Service quality control Vehicle Load and Route optimization Transport costs and scheme simulation Shipment batching of orders Cost control, KPI (Key performance indicators) reporting and statistics
