Transportation Management Systems Procurement in the US
This report is intended to assist buyers of transportation management systems (TMSs). TMSs have a broad range of functionality to assist with supply chain management, including shipment tracking, carrier selection, route optimization, vehicle fleet management, regulatory compliance assistance, documentation management, inbound freight management and freight reconciliation. TMSs can be purchased as traditional on-premises software products or through a subscription with a software as a service (SaaS) provider. Suppliers in this market do not provide truck, rail, air or other cargo transportation services. While this report covers many of the tasks associated with freight forwarding, it focuses on software rather than labor-based scheduling solutions.
