Sterling Commerce has developed the Sterling TMS Carrier Mobile App for use on the Apple iPhone. The product is now available on the App Store. It allows shippers and carriers to respond to tenders and provide real-time shipment status. The application works with Sterling Transportation Management System, an on-demand offering which incorporates a collaborative logistics network of more than 8,500 carriers transacting more than eight million shipments per year.
