How you manage your supply chain will determine your success in the freight industry. Technology has made it so that every independent freight agent has a chance at building a world-class freight agency. TMS is one of the main drivers of that success – the more advanced your TMS the greater your chance at success.
GlobalTranz is the leading TMS software provider exclusively for freight agents and brokers. Here is a list of the top 5 ways our technology helps you more effectively manage your supply-chain.
#1: Big Data Analysis and Custom Reporting
There is a million bits of data coming at you at all hours of the day. You can turn those numbers in to cold hard facts that can help you dramatically improve your business operations, increase cash flow, and grow your agency.
Big data is playing a huge part in helping agents fine tune their supply chain down to the fine details. GlobalTranz TMS gives you the most precise and highly customizable reports anywhere. Plus they come in easy to read custom reports to consolidate information gleaned from data coming from all along your supply chain.
#2: End-to-End Shipment Management
No longer do you need one carrier to carry the ball the whole way. Technology enables agents to move their freight coast to coast and around the globe. You have access to real-time reporting that virtually gives you eyes on the ground as you manage your customers’ freight shipments from their origination to their destination.
#3: Nimble Supply Chain Carriers
In order to guarantee shipments to anywhere in the country or the world, you have to have a carrier network that is large enough and skilled enough to handle whatever comes your way.
GlobalTranz customers, partners, and agents have access to an exclusive 20,000-carrier database of some of the top 3PLs in the world to choose from. The more effectively you can manage your shipments, the more business you will attract. Having nimble supply chain carriers is a necessity.
#4: Seamless Intermodal Shipment Management
From ocean to land, from land to air, many freight agents have to move shipments along various supply chain transportation modes. In order to ensure that your operations don’t get stuck at an airport or loading dock, you have to have seamless intermodal shipment management.
At GlobalTranz we offer expedited services for supply-chain management that stretches beyond the continental U.S. Uniformed supply chain management helps to reduce errors, delays, and fees using advanced technology.
#5: Streamlined Operations
Finally, while other agents have to farm out their accounting functions and spend hours inputting data every day for the same vendors over and over, our technology automates it and streamlines it for you. It not only saves time and money in productivity and overhead but it also enables you to focus on the larger picture of building your freight business.
Using GlobalTranz technology we handle the responsibilities of invoicing, bill pay, carrier pay, claims filing, reporting, and more. Our CommandCenter interface allows you to customize your view so that you can analyze your historical and real-time financial data to make better financial decisions.
