What exactly is a TMS system?

As we approach our third year of partnership between Sologistx and Cerasis, we feel it is important to stress the benefits of utilizing the Cerasis rater for the management of freight shipping.  Many Sologistx customers are currently enjoying the benefits of our TMS system.  But as we offer this dynamic tool to our existing and potential customers, we often get asked, what exactly is a TMS system?  TMS, or Transportation management services system is a cloud-based online portal where all your company freight is managed. Web-based TMS systems give customers more functionality and visibility to best manage all their freight shipping.  It has been proven that users of TMS systems save approximately 10% on their freight costs.
