Planned availability date July 19, 2011 Description Not long ago, transportation management was considered a tactical concern -- a necessary cost of doing business, with little impact on margins or profitability.

Leading-edge companies are meeting these expectations through web-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) transportation management systems that support collaborative planning and execution with carriers and customers. These systems have the potential to save as much as 10 to 25 percent of total shipping costs through optimized load building, carrier rate comparisons, contract compliance, and streamlined inbound execution. enables companies to optimize and transform their supply chain network by automating the planning and execution of their inbound and outbound transportation processes. is a comprehensive solution comprising four main components.
