The Next Step in the Evolution of SaaS—Managed TMS®

Our Managed TMS® service represents the next evolutionary step in TMS technology that combines the strengths of the established 3PL model with TMS technology.

By · February 22, 2011

Shippers who subscribe to the idea that transportation management systems (TMS) and logistics outsourcing only come in two colors – purchased software or the traditional 3PL model – are misreading the market, and could be missing some major opportunities to take their freight networks to higher levels of efficiency and cost management improvement.

A unique category of solutions, Managed TMS® service has emerged for shippers. It combines the strengths of the established 3PL models with software as a service (SaaS) technology, business process outsourcing, global optimization, and consulting expertise. The amalgam of analysis, communications, technology, and deep domain knowledge can be tailored to the needs of each individual shipper. Furthermore, the speed at which the Managed TMS service can be implemented at the shipper’s location makes an impact on operating performance that leads to immediate savings and sustains the savings long term in a cycle of continuous improvement.
