Abstract:

This paper discusses the integration process of a transportation management system (TMS). This new system will enhance and control daily activities, file historic information, and monitor performance metrics. Implementing TMS, a database within this company's current enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, will assist with operating and executing more efficiently as well as identifying opportunities for improving the logistics infrastructure and network. The TMS will offer value-added services and have the ability to analyze its internal performance against external performance and environmental factors such as its core carrier base and industry competitors.
