What Is A Transportation Management System?
A transportation management system, or TMS, covers the planning, execution, monitoring and follow-up around an organization’s inbound and outbound transportation. A TMS can cover ground, freight, air and intermodal transportation. An effective system will deliver consistent on-time performance, optimized routing and lower overhead costs, among other KPIs.
