What is a TMS?

You may have noticed that our website is www.fmstms.com.    What does this mean?   FMS is simple enough as it is the name of the company – Freight Management Systems.   But what is TMS?  It stands for Transportation Management System.    It is the service that FMS provides.

What is a Transportation Management System?

A TMS is a part of the supply chain management for transportation.   It is all aspects of moving goods.   From the planning, shipment, delivery, follow-up and everything in between.

There are different types of TMS software programs.   Some link directly in with an ERP system that manufacturers use to tracking their inventory and manufacturing process.   Distributors may have a separate TMS than a retail business.  Logistic service providers may use a separate program altogether.   FMS specializes in providing transportation management systems to third-party logistics, brokers or 3PL’s.

LOADPlus is designed to cover all aspects needed by a 3PL for their transportation needs.   It sends quotes, creates sales orders, assigns carriers to the shipments, tracks freight and delivery of the loads and all aspects of the accounting once the freight has been delivered.
