Transportation Management Systems

Transportation Management Systems (TMS) Technology Assessment and Implementation Assistance services are provided for organizations that are interested in understanding how advanced technology can improve transportation performance. Typically, the service includes a transportation technology assessment, based on a structured methodology that compares current technology capability with transportation requirements, resulting in an analysis of critical gaps and recommendations.

In the selection phase, along with the technology assessment, we provide guidance on best practice transportation planning, execution, and settlement processes. Process change decisions up front set up a path for success when the new technology is implemented. During selection, we also manage the process; developing demonstration scripts based on business requirements, providing a scoring matrix, counseling on the final selection, and price benchmarking.

In TMS implementation we can provide support where needed:

  • During the design phase, we provide guidance on carrier management, transportation lane strategy, and work flows from a strategic prospective with a view toward global deployment. Our guidance assists in driving configuration of the technology that does not have to be revisited when expanding to other business units in the enterprise. Where lane strategy is changing, we can also assist with carrier procurement.
  • During testing and go live, we provide assistance with test plan creation, test plan execution, training and go live support.
