Large Distributor Employs TMS to Centralize Transportation Procedures

Challenge: A wholesale distributor of construction materials and supplies was struggling to centralize their procedures around transportation. At the time, branches had individual methods for managing materials transportation. A universal tool was needed to have better analysis on the client's freights.

Solution: The client rolled out our TMS software across eight lines of business and 648 locations to help their branches choose the right carriers by providing them with rates and a standardized bill of lading along with pertinent data to analyze trends. Carrier invoicing and EDI messaging provided the data necessary for freight auditing against the client's contracts.

Results: Equipped with a user-friendly TMS as well as our reporting and carrier management tools to produce required freight data and documents, our client was able to centralize all transportation-related procedures in one platform. This has helped them make their goals of going international a reality beginning with their Canada division.

Supports multi-leg loads using TL, LTL, air, ocean, rail, intermodal, and high volume multi-carrier parcel. Use SaaS or self-hosted application to optimize transportation and reduce costs.
