What you’ll need to know about transportation management systems.

TMS software can plan routes, track shipments, and manage costs. It helps companies optimize their logistics—such as finding cost-effective shipping or identifying ways to reduce emissions—and can be combined with other software, such as warehouse management systems and enterprise resource planning systems, to give a more complete view of supply chain execution.

Having a TMS and WMS on the same platform can: 

  • Improve data visibility—two systems on the same platform can provide a more comprehensive view of supply chain execution.
  • Increase efficiency—by automating and streamlining inventory tracking, order fulfillment, and shipping.
  • Improve Communication—WMS and TMS share components for different parts of the supply chain, such order, customer, item and shipment.
  • Support real-time data—reducing delays, overhead, and errors caused by legacy integrations, allowing for quicker response to changes in demand or other disruptions.
  • Save money—by helping companies identify and eliminate inefficiencies, leading to savings in inventory management, transportation, and logistics.

AI and machine learning assist with tasks too time-consuming to perform manually. Some examples: 

  • Predictive analytics, where ML can analyze historical data and make predictions about future demand, shipping routes, and other transportation-related factors.
  • Automated planning, where ML can identify the most cost-effective options and reduce delivery times.
  • Real-time optimization, where ML can analyze data in real-time and adjust routes, delivery schedules, and other logistics-related factors.
  • Self-learning, where ML algorithms can process data to continually adapt and improve processes.
  • Scalability, where ML can process huge amounts of data and provide insights.
