While most transportation management solutions handle operations from a shipment perspective (shipment-centric), the order-centric TMS can consume a raw order of any type (Purchase Order, Sales Order, Return) – making integration with order capture systems easy. The system can also decompose orders into one or many shipments, optimizing every routing and carrier decision for efficiency and cost-effectiveness. The order-centric structure allows for superior rush and expedite order management. Since there is no batching or special processing, users can aggregate and optimize flows as needed, until the last possible moment. Order-Centric systems also provide unprecedented processing speeds and reduce latency in status updates to facilitate the quickest responses and most timely event management. The Order-Centric TMS is not just multi-modal - it has no mode, leg, or geographic limit. As one of the most flexible TMS solutions on the market, it empowers its users to configure complex order flows, as well as easily modify and add new flows to accommodate evolving business needs. The Order-Centric structure enables the system to leverage a robust rate and service agreement structure for pinpoint accuracy and detailed cost allocation. The MPO TMS solution captures not only transport costs, but all logistics costs including handling, detention, and warehousing.
