**// TEST //** As supply chains have become more global and businesses more interconnected, getting products, parts and materials where they need to go in an efficient, cost-effective manner has become an essential goal. That goal is being realized with integrated technologies that feed real time information back to a transportation management system.  The services supporting a transportation management system form the backbone of enhanced service to your customer while lowering cost and reducing your risk.  For many organizations, transportation management systems are an important part of broader supply chain and fulfillment management.

transportation management systems are important to supply chain

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.

Instead of lumping in transportation management with other supply chain and fulfillment planning, consider outsourcing it to a qualified third-party logistics company. As a transportation management company, Rockfarm Supply Chain Solutions has helped organizations across North America cut costs, improve efficiency and minimize risk.

transportation management involves matching a carrier with your shipping needs

Each enhancement has one purpose: to deliver value through enhanced visibility, enabling improved customer experience and a lower “cost to serve.”

  • As the final round of negotiations comes to a close, carrier contracting formalizes the carrier relationship within your supply chain. The primary purpose of the contracting process is to mitigate risk. Risk to your supply comes in many forms, with the most prominent emerging from inadequate protections within the carrier contracting process.

  • Each step of the RFP solidifies the accountability of each carrier to your supply chain. Measuring that compliance becomes inherent to the RFP process as the carrier relationships are formalized. Measurements may include the following:

    • Tender acceptance
    • Pick-up performance
    • Delivery performance
    • Status updates
    • Invoice accuracy

    Each of the formalized measurements requires compliance that includes daily, monthly and annual reporting, aligning your requirements with your carrier and ensuring each party is aligned with the success of your supply chain.

We can customize our services based on the specifics of your operation and your internal expertise. We understand that while some businesses are happy to outsource their transportation management entirely, others require more control. Whatever level of service we provide, count on our team to deliver transparency and excellent communication every step of the way.

Other advantages of working with Rockfarm include lower overall costs, more proactive risk management and improved regulatory compliance. Although anyone can benefit, organizations working in industries with specialized transportation requirements — such as food, pharmaceuticals and chemical processing — are ideal candidates for outsourcing.
