How to Maximize value out of a TMS — towards Smarter and better Transportation management

April 23, 2015 - 13:10

Webinar - Maximizing value out of a TMS

Many companies have acknowledged the need to better manage the transportation from a financial, visibility and a process perspective.

However, just implementing a Transport Management System (TMS) will not do the job.

Although the software is delivering many functionalities to make this happen the big challenge remains how you will align your organization to make sure you can use the TMS in an optimal way.

Key questions include: how can you be sure that you have the optimal cost levels, the right rates, the right rate structures and the right service and performance levels. How can benchmark contribute to answering these questions ? How should we on-board carriers, how do we manage rate updates, how do we maintain carrier changes and implementations, how do we handle KPI's and keep process documentation up to date?

In the upcoming webinar Buck Consultants International and ControlPay will discuss how to unlock value out of a Transport Management System and taking it to the next level of Smarter and better Transportation Management.

Join us in our webinar where we will share our views on getting the optimal rates in combination with the right service and to manage a TMS in a fully operational set-up, how to handle data changes and onboarding of carriers in order to maximize the value of Transportation Management and related systems.
