Transportation Management Systems Reduce Freight Spend While Maintaining Service Levels

Freight Savings from Transportation Management SystemsA transportation management system helps companies move freight from origin to destination efficiently, reliably, and cost-effectively. Transportation management systems include 2 types of solutions.  Planning and execution is focused on freight moves involving a carrier.  Fleet Management involves freight moves with transportation assets owned by the company.  The primary reason companies buy a transportation management system is for freight savings. These freight savings can be attributed to simulation and network design, load consolidation and lower cost mode selections, and multi-stop route optimization.  But few companies would buy a TMS if it would lead to declining service levels.  A TMS maintains the service levels by understanding the origin to destination lead times and using that as a constraint during the optimization run.

E-Commerce and Omni-Channel Drive Long Term Growth

E-commerce continues to grow at double-digit rates, while traditional retail is growing at less than the rate of inflation.  Fleet management solutions, when tightly integrated with an e-commerce site, help companies achieve promised delivery dates while minimizing costs.  Planning and execution solutions include parcel solutions, which is are widely used to support e-commerce.

COVID-19 Is Causing Market Disruptions

At the time of this writing in June 2020, it is already evident that the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects from the associated “Great Lock-down” will have a substantial negative impact on the economies of the world in the second quarter of 2020.  The extent and duration of this impact is less clear.  The degree and duration of the impact specifically on the global transportation management system market is also still undetermined.  However, the TMS market is a bit more insulated than other markets and the impact should be to a lesser extent, especially as certain industries (CPG and food & beverage in particular) have seen an increased need for TMS applications.
