Back in 2004, trucking companies used to work in Excel spreadsheets to manage their day-to-day operations.
It was cumbersome to track the loads dispatching and accounting stuff. But in today 2021, spreadsheets are replaced by a transportation management system_ a single consolidated software that can do everything from generating invoices to paying the drivers, autonomous dispatching, and keep up with compliance.
As trucking companies expand with time, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage their operations on essential tools.
Shifting to Smart TMS is the utmost transition required when the fleet reaches above 30 trucks. Nevertheless, fleets of smaller size are seen to jump into the TMS installation right away.
It's because of rapid growth that increased the demand of conducting business over the phone, load boards, and dealing with backhauls.
Indeed, data-driven organizations generally have tremendous advantages over companies that haven't yet begun any digital transformation.
Fortunately, most of the tricks are already deployed by most digital freight matching solutions (DFMs) on the market.
There are a few principle pieces of data that are always available for every shipment. These include the origin and destination of a load and when it needs to be delivered.
Based on these three data points, DFMs can help shippers cut emissions by 15% or more with minimal effort or investment.
Using primary, publicly available data (or even an app like Waze),
a DFM can identify when the heaviest traffic will occur that might allow drivers to focus on the second half of the delivery while deflating the amount of time they're driving/idling.
Carriers always look for potential TMS implementations that can benefit them in reducing costs, which can be reinvested in the business.
All in all, they look for Dynamic products with embedded business intelligence. It drives strategic
decision-making and enhances freight transportation performance, providing high-level visibility
into all transportation management tasks and helps swiftly match the carriers with the cargoes.
