Everyone from manufacturers, distributors, eCommerce businesses, retailers and logistics service providers. Logistic service providers can be further categorised by Domestic Transport and Couriers, Specialist Logistics Providers, Freight Forwarders, Third-Party Logistic Providers (3PL) and Private Fleet Managers.
A cloud-based transportation management system delivers many of the same business benefits as other cloud solutions, including improved economies of scale, lower total cost of ownership, no upgrade fees and a faster return on investment (ROI).
For IT, a cloud-based TMS provides additional benefits in the form of faster deployments, fewer hours needed for training and installation, automatic updates with the latest features and improved security.
The benefits of an automated TMS are clear. The electronic and automatic communications facilitated by TransVirtual facilitate and dramatically improve productivity, speed, service levels, and visibility.
These four key signs of growth indicate it’s time to start using transport or delivery software:
- Can major carriers work with you? If you’re heading into carrier contract negotiations with manually crunched spreadsheets and outdated forecasts, a TMS for parcel shipping can give you the competitive edge you need to win more favorable terms.
- You need more staff to handle increasing shipping volumes. Use a TMS to automate the manual work you’re hiring for.
- You’re getting an increased number of calls to customer service. A TMS keeps your customers in the loop at every stage, so they don’t need to expend any effort getting updates – and neither do you.
- You’re struggling to allocate shipping costs. With a TMS for parcel shipping, finance teams have access to real-time, accurate shipping data down to the stock – keeping unit (SKU) level, improving reporting and forecasting, and enabling you to create better disciplines around shipping spend.
We don’t limit ourselves to who we service but we work best with high volume parcels or satchels and bulky pallet goods.
Cloud solutions improve economies of scale, lower total cost of ownership, are free to upgrade, and typically offer a faster return on investment (ROI).
IT teams love cloud-based solutions because they can deploy them faster, need to spend less time on training and installation, and everything updates automatically for improved security.
Some projects can be set up in a day while some can take up to 4 weeks – and don’t worry, we view implementation as a partnership and a shared process.
