The rise of automation has changed business around the world. Where businesses once had to rely on the labor of large administrative staffs, now they can automate many formerly time-consuming processes, saving on labor costs and boosting efficiencies. In the freight forwarder business, transportation management software has given its adopters a unique advantage that enhances customer satisfaction while boosting profit margins.
How has TMS Software revolutionized the freight forwarder business?
The transportation management industry has relied on copious amounts of manual logistics management, requiring endless phone calls, tons of paperwork and lots of expense for the company. The advent of software automation is changing this paradigm, making it possible for companies to manage their transportation systems through artificial intelligence. As a result, they cut overhead, reduce taxing workloads on employees and improve customer satisfaction.
For example, in the old days, logistics people had to arrange for their cargo to be placed on a ship and then wait for a letter confirming it was received. With TMS software, they have real time visibility of the movements of goods across the entire supply chain. In addition to visibility, TMS software also displays what is being done with the cargo and even the temperatures of the storage areas. Because of this high-precision capability, logistics coordinators can make decisions based on data that shows real time conditions, such as weather, supply and demand. This achieves improved efficiency, reliability and lower costs.
Efficiency gains and cost reductions are also achieved through TMS software’s ability to reduce error rates, replace slow manual operations with rocket fast AI and link supply with demand. As a result, TMS software has provided the logistics industry with brand new advantages, including the following:
• Very low prices at major retailers like Walmart
• Same day shipping of almost any product from ecommerce companies like Amazon
• Ridesharing companies that offer low cost, on-demand transportation
• Coconut water from Thailand that is sold half a world away
TMS software has been a game changer. To benefit most from its capabilities, freight forwarders need to source from an industry leader. CSA offers the latest technology at affordable prices, guaranteeing that clients businesses get more efficient and profitable.
