For our part, here at Turvo, we look to bring shippers, carriers, and brokers together through a collaborative transportation management system (TMS) that allows for all parties to communicate at a higher level than ever before.
What is Collaborative TMS?
E-commerce has changed both the shape and the nature of the global supply chain. Moving goods from A to B is no longer a simple matter. Instead, shippers, manufacturers, retailers, and carriers must carefully navigate an increasingly more complex logistics networks rife with delays and inefficiencies at every turn.
Standard transportation management systems are designed to help users plan and execute shipments in a simpler, more straightforward fashion. By automating many of the processes necessary to move freight, like finding an available carrier, for example, the process can be sped up, and shipments can be conducted quicker and more easily.
A collaborative TMS (CTM), on the other hand, goes a step beyond what a standard transportation management system can accomplish. Not only does it offer the full suite of capabilities that comes with utilizing a TMS, but a CTM also optimizes logistics based on long-term planning and visibility. Here, shippers, carriers, and brokers get a more in-depth view of their supply chain, allowing for a smoother operation and all-around more efficient system.
Benefits of Collaborative TMS
There are multiple reasons why a collaborative transportation management system should be considered in addition to benefiting all parties involved.
- Higher visibility means reduced cycle delivery times and a more dependable ETA on shipments.
- Mitigate risks of delays through better visibility and communication between all participating partners.
- Cut lead times and costs through automated lane consolidation
- Improve operational flexibility through proactive, rather than reactive, supply chain management.
