You’re All Over the Map


TMS offers productivity, connectivity, savings and control.
Your company’s shipping operations spread over a vast area: large swathes of this country, neighboring countries, and quite likely beyond. You could say you’re all over the map – and your Transportation Management System (TMS) needs to be too.
A TMS built to your specifications by TOTALogistix is uniquely responsive to the unique needs of your business and its supply chain. You need a system built specifically to manage the myriad variables of transporting products – your products – in the modes you utilize. Companies that sell ERPs like to throw in or “bolt on” a TMS, with the promise this will give you all the functionality you need. We regularly get an earful from firms that went with that approach, only to discover the TMS took too long to implement, turned their company operations upside down, and never delivered on its promise.
We believe in a process-driven approach, putting process before systems and making our system work with your processes, rather than vice versa. Before we speak, we listen, document and confirm, making sure we understand what you are looking for from your TMS. We write and maintain our own code, which is not only cost-effective, but facilitates the highest level of customization. As your organization grows and evolves, we are there every step of the way, ensuring your TMS evolves with you. Many of our clients came to us after another provider failed to meet the changing needs of their company.
The money you save with a TOTALogistix TMS, which can quickly mount well into the six-figure range, is only one benefit. Improved freight operations will relieve your staff of onerous work, and lead to increased customer satisfaction. Customer service can now be proactive about managing orders and their status.
For instance, once an order is shipped, the TMS will automatically notify your customer and provide them with tracking information. No more WISMO (where is my order) calls. Your system will also close out and update the order in the ERP and track the shipments all the way to delivery. 
For supply chain headaches, including botched implementations, a TMS from TOTALogistix can provide relief – while providing a boost to your bottom line.
