Giving transport operators a platform

Today’s transport and freight operators use transport management systems (TMSs) as a matter of course. The benefits of a well implemented TMS are now widely recognised in the industry, so it's time to ask what the next, improved iteration of a TMS could be. Thankfully, the answer is already with us - a TMS should become the backbone of a transport management PLATFORM. As far as transport operators are concerned, what we mean by a platform is an integrated IT system that features a range of functionalities of which the TMS is just one hub (albeit a central one), which in turn is connected seamlessly to other hubs, which could include departments such as HR, financial management, stakeholder reporting and so on. The key here is that a transport management platform not only delivers the required TMS functionality but also forms a central communications platform on which an operator's IT master plan can be integrated with an operator's business strategy. Usefully, via a correctly planned transport management platform, data duplication is minimised and communications to wider stakeholders optimised.

In summary, the next step to improving your transport operations is establishing a transport management platform that can run multiple aspects of a transport operator’s business.
