Transportation management system involves a set of software and services that are deployed to provide management of logistics, warehouses, distribution systems, and order management systems. The transport management system includes solutions for various transportation processes, such as traffic management, information management, and parking management, which need to be analyzed for efficient, safe, and effective transportation for the customers. Transportation management systems enable enterprises to automate planning, routing, and scheduling of their transportation processes, leading to reduced freight costs. They also provide enhanced visibility into the supply chain management process by offering features such as warehouse management and dispatch management. Furthermore, they also help in tracking transport information, leading to improved delivery performance.
