Your transportation management system (TMS) can save your organization a significant amount of money by reducing freight spend. What are the benefits of TMS? Companies indicated an 8% savings due to a TMS in the results of a survey conducted by ARC Advisory Group. 60% of the respondents indicated that the costs of using the TMS ate less than 10% of their net profit, making the ROI from their TMS strong.
Other transportation management system benefits include:
- Track shipment updates
- Get a heads-up on delays and potential delays
- Provide shipment details to make following up easier
- Measure how well your supply chain functions
- Aids in delivering excellent customer service
Third-party logistics (3PL) providers make TMS solutions available to clients to assist them in setting up and carrying out their shipments. Freight Management, Inc. (FMI) designed its all-in-one TMS, My Freight Manager®, to give clients access to key details of each shipment in one central system.

Correcting this issue is one of the many transportation management system benefits. At FMI, we give clients access to our My Freight Manager TMS and knowledgeable staff with the expertise to guide them through the process of managing their shipments.
