The Next Step in the Evolution of SaaS - Managed TMS

Challenge: Our client, a leading canned and bottled juice company wanted to move to a Managed TMS program. The company considered a number of other options before selecting a system. It decided that software-based solutions that could be implemented in-house were too costly, both in terms of the initial outlay and ongoing maintenance. A web-based solution proved inadequate because it was not integrated properly with outbound operations.

Solution: C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. offers Managed TMS® services through a division called TMC, that implemented delivering of a no-to-low capital investment, quick deployment, hard cost returns, and operational flexibility.

Results: The Managed TMS solution provides management reports that enable our client to track a variety of important costs, such as cost per load delivered, transfer costs, utilization, miles traveled, and cost per mile. But key to the ongoing success of the program is the dedicated, onsite experts from the provider who work alongside the company's transportation team.
