Small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) face complex shipping struggles every day. Luckily, by partnering with a third-party logistics (3PL) company, you can gain access to their transportation management system (TMS) and navigate these challenges while saving time and trouble in the process.
A TMS is a technology platform used in logistics to help SMBs plan, manage and execute their inbound and outbound shipments. If your business frequently ships freight, a freight management system is essential in streamlining your transportation operations and creating greater efficiency for your business.
