Brand new year, same old problems.

For freight operators, the problems that we were dealing with by the end of 2022 did not, of course, disappear with the arrival of 1 January 2023. Problems such as spiralling fuel costs, supply chain disruptions, new environmental rules and so on and on. However, we can make a New Year's resolution to leave no stone unturned in trying to handle those problems better and more easily by utilising the latest transport management technology.

The first step in doing this would be for transport managers and/or their customers to undertake a fairly simple, straightforward review of their transport management system (TMS) and general operations. Armed with this information, the second step would be to undertake another review, this time of the TMS options currently available in the market, most specifically those that are Internet-based as they are inherently more efficient, cost-effective and simpler to operate than any of the alternatives. Internet-based TMSs, such as our own CarrierNet, are usually run on a Software as a Service (SaaS) basis (about which you can find out more here). Step three, obviously, would be to switch to a SaaS-based TMS that will automate most transport processes, provide transparency and deliver timely information to any pertinent parties without any real additional effort.

In addition, there is no reason why KPI information cannot be provided to customers, suppliers, etc. as required, without any increase in bureaucracy (in fact, the opposite). Not to mention that Order-to-Cash cycles can be immediately reduced to deliver improved cash flow.

If it seems far-fetched that an existing TMS can do all this and a lot more, please contact Bashir Khan here and he will happily demonstrate that it can - and also explain how this can also be delivered without impacting on your existing TMS and other transport management solutions.
