Trucking Companies Need a Solid Transportation Management System and EDI

Transportation Management System

Only people that are NOT in the transportation industry think that moving product from point A to point B is a simple and easy task. Freight Management and logistics, coordinating routes, proper state and federal reporting, accurate invoicing and driver payments are just a few of the factors involved in shipping goods between locations. With the right Transportation Management System (TMS) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) you can automate all of those pesky manual processes involved with moving a load for your customer. No double entry of check-calls in your internal system and then again into web portals, no duplicated or lost invoices. Streamlining all of these manual processes will definitely free up a lot of your employee’s time. Allowing them to focus and maximize their time on other vital aspects of your day-to-day operations. Focusing on more important areas, besides just doing data entry, will help your company become a more successful Transportation Company.


A lot of Dispatch Solutions Just Come up Short

Customer after customer has come to us because their out-of-the box dispatch products are limited in their ability to fully address all the issues created with a Transportation Management System or, even worse, their heavily invested on-premise solution is not functioning properly and is taking up all of their employee’s valuable work time. Transportation Management Systems (TMS) and EDI are supposed to work for you and make your business more efficient, empowering you to process more shipments, while growing your profit margins. Simple User Interface, every report you need, seamless integration with EDI and QuickBooks are all major reasons why our customers decide to go with the MessageXpress Paperless Data Management System (PDMS).
