A source of truth for both day-to-day operations as well as overall performance is crucial for transportation organizations. The challenge comes when off-the-shelf solutions don’t meet the needs of the business, and internal teams lack the resources to create a single custom, scalable solution.
RevUnit partners with leading transportation and logistics organizations on a data-first approach to semi-custom or fully-custom solutions that scale as your business grows.
Our teams are experts in creating custom enterprise software for transportation and logistics organizations, freight shipping and supply chain solutions providers, and moving / relocation companies.
A TMS, or transportation management system, is a software that provides centralized visibility into day-to-day transportation operations, including shipment planning and tracking, carrier management, route optimization, automations, payment processing, and data analytics.
Not everyone needs a custom TMS. There are many off-the-shelf systems you can purchase for your business. If you are a small to medium-sized business with relatively standard operations, then a SaaS solution may be your best bet.
However, if you have specialized operations, a large or complex business, and/or you are looking to create a competitive edge with your own data, then a custom TMS is probably the best route (see what we did there?).
We put together a buy vs. build guide here if you want more help making a decision on custom vs. not.
The very best TMS works seamlessly into the workflow of employees and decision makers. Aside from the day-to-day operations and visibility, a great TMS should help you run a data-driven organization and help set your teams up for the future. Leveraging machine learning and AI in your TMS will help you future-proof your business. Consider looking at (or building) a TMS that incorporates these emerging technologies to help you work smarter:
-> Predictive analytics
-> Smart load matching
-> Route visibility and automation
-> Compliance and paperwork automation
We’ll help you prioritize and build a custom TMS to create a unique advantage for your organization. With automated decision-making, advanced analytics, and process digitization, you’ll end up with an innovative TMS that gives you a competitive edge.
