    Growing with a flexible Transport Management System

    04 Apr, 2024

      In today’s rapidly evolving world, where companies are constantly growing and changing, it is essential to remain agile and keep up with the latest technologies. This certainly applies to the transport sector. A future-proof Transport Management System (TMS) plays a crucial role in this.


      Flexible scaling: how a Transport Management System can help your company

      In the dynamic world of transport & logistics, we see that companies regularly face challenges such as changes in the economic climate, organic business growth and/or growth through acquisitions. In every situation, companies must always be able to adapt. A flexible TMS system offers a solution when scaling a company, whether it concerns integrating acquired companies, onboarding new colleagues, or facilitating access from any device and from any location.

      Smooth business integration
      When acquiring other companies, a flexible Transport Software is essential to smoothly integrate the existing activities of the acquired company. It enables companies to quickly harmonize the different operational processes and realize synergies.

      Efficient onboarding process
      For training new colleagues, a flexible TMS system offers intuitive interfaces and extensive training options, allowing new employees to be trained efficiently and quickly become productive.

      Anytime, anywhere
      With a flexible Transport Management System, employees can access essential information and tools from anywhere, whether they are working at home, abroad or on the road. This improves efficiency and makes it possible to continue working anytime, anywhere.

      Business growth without limitations
      Moreover, a high-performance Transport Software can handle a large number of users and a large volume of orders per day, allowing companies to continue to grow without worrying about technical limitations.


      Stay one step ahead of the competition: the benefits of a Cloud Transport Software

      In modern business operations, moving to the cloud is no longer an optional luxury, but rather a necessary step to stay competitive. Moving to the cloud not only offers cost savings and operational efficiency, but also flexibility, scalability, and access to the latest innovations.

      No more high hardware costs
      By switching to a cloud TMS system, you eliminate the need to invest in expensive hardware such as servers and associated maintenance. Instead, these costs are replaced by a predictable subscription formula. This way you can significantly reduce your IT costs.

      Accessible from anywhere
      One of the biggest benefits of the cloud is the ability to access your business data and applications from anywhere and on any device. This enables flexible working and promotes collaboration between teams, regardless of their physical location.

      Monthly usage licenses, easier to budget
      Instead of large one-time investments in software licenses, the cloud offers a monthly subscription model. This makes it easier to budget costs and avoids additional expenses for software upgrades or new versions.

      Always access to the latest new functionalities through automatic updates
      Cloud applications are constantly updated and improved, which means you always have access to the latest features and security updates, without extra cost or effort. This ensures that your company always uses the most advanced tools and technologies.


      Innovative Transport Management System: tailored to your planning department

      A Transport Software that is specifically designed for your planning department can be a game changer in the logistics sector. It is therefore crucial to invest in a TMS system that not only provides the basic functionality, but also has specific tools and capabilities designed to support your planners in their daily tasks.

      Strong visual representation of planning
      A Transport Management System must provide an intuitive and visually attractive interface, so that planners can quickly and easily get an overview of all orders to be planned. A good system also offers different planning views because every planner has its own style.

      Right insights at any time
      The TMS system must provide planners with real-time insights and data, so they can quickly respond to changes in planning and proactively anticipate potential problems.

      Optimal Margin Suggestions
      An advanced Transport Management System can provide planners with suggestions for optimizing margins, such as consolidating shipments or choosing the most efficient routes and transportation modes.

      Always access to the latest functionalities
      The TMS system must be regularly updated with new features and improvements to continue to meet the changing needs of the planning teams and to take advantage of the latest innovations in transportation planning.
