Transportation Management: Weathering the Perfect Storm

With powerful market factors converging to negatively impact transportation costs, capacity-and the bottom line-shippers can apply effective strategies to weather the storm and begin to build a world-class, integrated transportation system.


Our Transportation Management solutions include:

  • Transportation Procurement, a Web-native system that automates and standardizes the entire bid process to identify and secure the most efficient and cost-effective transportation providers for each shipment, taking into account your business priorities and carrier capabilities. Benefits include more reliable capacity acquisition with fewer turndowns, higher on-time delivery rates and significantly reduced procurement time and costs.
  • Transportation Planning & Execution enables shippers to dynamically manage and optimize the day-to-day operations of their transportation network, no matter how large or complex it may be. Web-based communications and automatic Event Management alerts provide global visibility and the ability to respond quickly to avert potential delivery problems. Benefits include reduced transportation costs, stronger supplier, customer, and carrier relationships, fewer transportation problems and better customer service.
  • Load Management, a powerful solution that allows shippers to plan, execute, track and audit all incoming and outgoing loads through efficient appointment scheduling, carrier communications and secure, coordinated yard management. Benefits include higher productivity, improved asset utilization and increased yard throughput, while minimizing the risk of detention fees and service failures.
