By up scaling global trade and logistics, Transport Management System (TMS) has gained significant traction in today’s world. From quoting to delivery, freight transport is capable of revamping itself with sophisticated technologies to elevate the TMS landscape. Also, greatly enabling the supply chain network by monitoring data in real-time and promoting visibility of inventories, TMS is striking a balance between the ERP and the distribution centers.
As a result of embracing cloud-based TMS, shipping companies have distanced themselves from complicated and expensive servers. This incorporation has eased the capturing of real-time information enabling shippers with higher performance and better decision-making capabilities. Further, capacity monitoring is enhanced substantially with the introduction of blockchain in TMS. All of the information regarding the cargo volumes and shipping cost deduced through IoT sensors and big data is stored for futuristic purposes such as the self-execution of payments. In addition, delivering packages assisted by a drone within a certain radius of distance is the new approach in the transportation industry.
With the integration of mobile phones, GPS satellites, 3D printers, big data and artificial intelligence, TMS is forecasting a breakthrough logistics platform. With the significance attached to the shipping of goods, and its pivotal role in the global economy, faster and efficient TMS are in demand.
