There is no denying that we live in the age of technology, much like the industrial age, technology seems to be changing nearly everything. The way we grocery shop, communicate, and even the way we think has changed due to technology. These changes have slowly but surely made their mark on logistics.
Third-party logistics providers offer a long list of transportation services, from packaging to freight quoting and tracking, customer service to financial settlement and issue resolution.
We at GW Transportation rely on innovative technology to manage these services, create custom reporting, and to remain flexible in a rapidly changing environment.
The powerful logistics software we use, also known as transportation management software (TMS), not only helps manage day-to-day operations but can also create meaningful reports that allow you to track key performance indicators (KPIs) to manage costs and improve processes. TMS software tracks shipments from the initial order through delivery and final billing. It provides tools to track equipment, driver activity, and manage truckloads.
Monitoring KPIs with Custom Reports
In order to measure your success and drive efficiency, you need to know what you should be monitoring and your goals for them. We can help you identify key performance indicators for your company, your objectives and help you create a plan to reach those objectives. Setting a baseline of your company’s performance will help you see improvement or create plans to solve inefficiencies.
By tailoring reports beyond the basic TMS data, we are able to highlight where you’re succeeding and areas that are in need of improvement. Engaging in these quality improvement measurement and tracking practices will help your company be more successful.
Staying Flexible in a Rapidly Changing Environment
The shipping and transportation industry moves fast. In order to remain flexible and meet changing customer demands, logistics software is essential.
