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.
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.
