Transwide provides easy-to-use solutions for transportation procurement, planning, execution, and settlement that streamline processes and reduce cost throughout the transportation cycle. “Our customers count on us to provide quick access and accurate information about the capacity of their carriers, opportunities to optimize costs, and real-time visibility for each freight move,” says Hiller. “Our job is to provide a cost-effective and scalable solution framework for customers to optimize their logistics operations while catering to their unique workflow challenges, business practices, and IT philosophies.”
The company recently enhanced its TMS by increasing the number of options to capture and share information, especially when it comes to tracking the inbound and outbound freight moves.
Hiller highlights Transwide’s ability to enable their customers to leverage transactional and historical data throughout the transportation cycle. “We have customers who approached us initially for a basic TMS package, driven by their need to centralize and organize their transport execution and data; and within weeks they have better control on ‘who-how-where’ they spend their transportation budget. These clients are now leveraging the data they have collected to improve their processes and reduce their freight spend.” For instance, shipment execution and freight invoice data can be utilized when creating Requests for Proposals (RFP) and analyzing the responses through the Transwide TMS transport procurement solution. Additionally, Transwide’s supplier relationship management (“SRM”) functionality gives clients an added advantage of sourcing providers from a vast global community of carriers, brokers, forwarders, and other logistics partners. “Customers can search, filter, and ultimately source the suppliers that meet their unique criteria to participate in each RFP or spot bid exercise,” states Hiller.
With its global presence, and offices on 4 continents, Transwide offers, implements, and supports a truly worldwide TMS solution for companies looking to centralize and harmonize their transport and logistics operations. Transwide continues to invest in developing and enhancing its solutions, with a focus on improving a shipper’s ability to dynamically leverage the data that their TMS is capturing or generating. Concludes Hiller, “We are constantly working toward helping our shippers make quicker and more informed decisions so that they can service their customers more proactively.”
