Scope

 

Establish can evaluate the feasibility of using a Transportation Management System (TMS) to support your company’s transportation activities, and, if a TMS is feasible, then recommend a system that best supports the transportation activities.

There are many TMS systems in the market place with varying costs and capabilities.  Which one is right for your company?


Objectives

  • Determine whether a new transportation management system is needed or if the current system can be upgraded to perform at the desired level.

  • Select and negotiate the best vendor for the chosen transportation management system.

  • Improve the processes to realize the systemic benefits.


Deliverables

Every project is different; but typically, the five main deliverables are:

1. Feasibility

An evaluation of potential cost savings resulting from implementation of a TMS.

2. Software Functionality

Detail a matrix of software’s capability aligned to company’s transportation processes.

3. Improvement Opportunities
