Technological advancements have provided us with many supply chain solutions, but it may be challenging to find the most suitable solution for your business with so many options. When the data-driven analysis is combined with powerful execution tools, you can increase productivity and efficiency like never before. Learn more about the possibilities of supply chain forecasting and the possibilities of transportation management systems solutions in this on-demand webinar. And how to use these two systems together to reduce costs, increase productivity, and provide excellent customer service.
Why is real-time visibility important?
In an era of ever-increasing consumer expectations, letting individuals and businesses understand the status of their products is essential to ensure customer satisfaction and brand loyalty. By capturing real-time transportation data on time, companies can deliver more than just physical products. There are also valuable and intangible benefits of better customer service and peace of mind for paying consumers.
Why you should use TMS
TMS is a considerable investment for any sender. When debugging a system, the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. Transportation management systems will help optimize personnel management and allocate quantities on complex delivery lines. Research shows that as many as 98% of the largest airlines and 89% of the smallest airlines have some type of TMS.
The ultimate goal of supply chain management in digitization is to achieve complete end-to-end transparency of your operations finally. The reality is that without RTTV components, TMS implementation cannot achieve this because it cannot provide real-time or predictive information on transit goods. When transportation management systems and RTTV solutions are combined, the capabilities of each system will increase by order of magnitude. Since telecom operators usually perform daily operations directly through their TMS, data quality will become more and more accurate. For example, these daily processes include coordinating vehicles with their transportation orders, advanced dairy planning, and transfer station requirements, without the need for dispatchers to perform any manual operations.
Use available resources to increase productivity
What to look for: TMS that combines workflow and automation to reduce manual tasks. A systematic study found that during the COVID-19 pandemic, 85% of supply chains reduced operations, forcing many companies to work with fewer employees. As the company seeks to recover this year, maximizing the opportunity for employee performance is critical. One of the main advantages of TMS is to reduce manual intervention, such as calling the operator to clarify tariffs or reserve the load. TMS also provides a centralized view of all supply chain activities, saving time and helping teams take action faster in an outage.
The future of TMS technology
Using all this data will drive the development of the transportation industry and enable supply chain participants to achieve new levels of collaboration and collaboration. Transportation management systems are an excellent solution for using data in critical environments. Opportunities include helping shippers and shippers to work more closely together. This expansion of cooperation between shippers, shippers, and brokers maximizes resource use and helps ensure that freight is covered at the best cost. TMS can help shipper customers find inefficiencies in their network, determine more transit options, and quickly establish contact with shippers and shipments on their preferred routes.
The right technology for you
As supply chains become faster and more complex, shippers need tools that allow them to make data-driven decisions. Today’s transportation management systems provide shippers with a complete overview of their entire network and access to valuable market and network data so that they can better optimize productivity, reduce costs, and successfully respond to complex market challenges.
