Transport management software is designed to integrate with purchasing and shipping software to evaluate incoming and outgoing orders and to advise users on various shipping solutions before choosing the best method and the most affordable supplier.
Sometimes called the Transport Management System (TMS), the Transport Management Software provides electronic load and communication tools to select from potential operators. Finally, TMS implements tracking of cargo to provide the best freight with selected carriers and to provide freight audit and payment settlement.
Transport management software is often integrated with ERP tools and warehouse management software to accurately forecast demand and shipments. In addition, it can include fleet management software among its software modules.
