3 Keys to Maximizing Your Savings from Transportation Management Software



1. Using Mojo/Edge for tactical modelling

Run historical data through “what-if” scenarios to find the biggest savings. Set the parameters and let the algorithm do the work. Unless you’re optimizing on a per-load basis, you’re not reaping the full value of a TMS.

2. Using Mojo/Edge for strategic modelling

Compare different applications of pool points, and different configurations of warehouses and distribution centers. TMS can’t do this for you. It requires an approach that starts with your data and processes and incorporates an understanding of how your business is evolving.

3. Get SKU-level analytics with a data warehouse.

Cloud-based TMS has many benefits, but sometimes you want to get granular with analytics. We’ll show you how.

The 3 Biggest Supply Chain Mistakes Companies Are Making Today


Even with a TMS, companies aren’t finding the waste in their transportation networks.

If you’re trying to run an operation that minimizes inventory and turns, there’s little margin for error. Logistics team resources are stretched thin. Facing this challenge, many companies are increasingly turning to TMS and WMS to provide efficiency and cost savings. But even with the latest & greatest technology, much of the savings is left undiscovered.

Here’s what we’ve seen companies doing:

Companies not adopting a robust TMS

To maximize the effectiveness of technology to fit your companies, needs you must make the software conform to the process, not fit their process to the software.

Making changes without first modeling the impact

Use TMS to implement your redesigned network, not your “as-is” process, or an unproven concept.

Incomplete implementations

Inadequately trained teams who cannot use the full functionality of the new system can be costly.  So can overspending on consultants who take their expertise with them when they leave.

Supply Chain Coach will coach your team to maximize the utilization of the technology and will impart a lasting knowledge that will stay with your team long after we leave.
