The Business Case for Transportation Management

For many organizations, transportation and logistics is often viewed in a bubble and doesn’t fit in with the overall strategy or factored in to business goals. In reality, transportation touches a number of departments within an organization and can have a significant impact on its bottom line, overall operational efficiency and ability to service its customers at a high level. This whitepaper examines how a transportation management system (TMS) can help companies – from small-to-midsized businesses to large enterprises – reduce risk, improve operational efficiency and drive meaningful change within their organization.

Differentiated Logistics Services: Two Powerful Tools to Increase Competitive Advantage in the Chemical Industry

The power of differentiation is on display everywhere today. Big data and increasingly sophisticated algorithms enable more customized user experiences for vendors, customers and advertisers. As products and services become smarter, more flexible and more automated, they correspond more precisely to individual customer needs, even finding ways to adapt on the fly to changing situations and needs. Not surprisingly, the chemical industry – and chemical logistics – is no exception to this trend. As today’s chemical industry becomes more service oriented, chemical companies are having to challenge traditional logistics strategies and create new business models. For many chemical businesses, future competitive success will be determined not so much by the product itself, but by the package of logistics services offered in connection with that product. And as the trend gains momentum, having more responsive logistics solutions becomes not just ‘nice to have’ but a matter of survival.

Rethinking Supply Chain Performance with Transportation Managed Analytics

How do leaders drive continuous improvement of a supply chain network? Since the advent of transportation management systems (TMS) in the 1990s, supply chain leaders have streamlined domestic and international networks across all modes of transportation with visibility and planning capabilities. Now, with nearly thirty years of data capture under their belts, how can they use the data patterns, analyticsand lessons learned to improve their supply chain today? Just as the 1990s brought the then-advanced capabilities of TMS to companies, today, Transportation Managed Analytics is empowering leaders to rethink what’s possible for their supply chain. Transportation Managed Analytics is an integrated information process that’s been field tested and proven to improve supply chain performance. It intelligently curates, organizes and analyzes historical and real-time data from robust data warehouses built by 3PLs and supply chain executives to provide responses to the questions leaders have had for years but never had the insights or time to answer. Learn how Transportation Managed Analytics is building and managing next-generation supply chains by finally answering the questions that close the gap between visibility, performance, spend and risk.
