What is a Transportation Management System?
Far too often, we see businesses using a single carrier for all their supply chain needs. As a result, when things go wrong, they start to feel totally trapped. They find themselves stuck, because the prospect of managing multiple carriers is far too overwhelming. Unfortunately, most businesses just aren’t set up to handle complicated freight schedules from different sources. On top of that, with consumer demand higher than ever, they just don’t have the time or staff to call and compare multiple quotes. This is where having a logistics partner who offers a Transportation Management System, or TMS, can revolutionize a company’s supply chain.
To that point, Zero Down’s best in class TMS is an all-in-one logistics solution. Our cloud-based technology platform allows our clients to instantly compare quotes from any number of carriers. Then, they can print BOL’s and track their shipments, all with an easy-to-use interface that can be accessed from multiple locations.
