What’s The ROI on TMS?

Transportation Management Systems can be an invaluable tool in managing shipment activity and reducing transportation costs. A recent Supply Chain Digest survey quantified just how valuable. It determined the opportunities depended on three basic factors:

  • Level of TMS technology
  • Level of consolidation opportunities
  • Plans for centralizing decentralized transportation functions

While there is some overlap of activity, these are the net results in dollar savings:

  • Optimized LTL to Multi-Stop TL 5-20%
  • Improved operations 10-30%
  • Improved core programs 3-10%
  • Carrier selection 2-6%

While the savings can be substantial so too can the costs for a sophisticated TMS system. So why make the investment in IT if you don’t have to? Just (click here) and take a tour of our TMS system. Who’s making so much money that they can’t afford to save more?
