The Transport Management System (TMS) is a game changer for organizations when it comes to transporting freight effectively, reliably, and economically as it can improve operations, drive revenue, and deliver better customer service. However, you must exercise caution while selecting the correct TMS for your organization, as you must understand the value of this system and how it can benefit your company. Nothing has helped supply chain operations more than the Transport Management System, and in this article, you will learn all about the newly introduced WrxFlo Transport Management System and why your company needs it!
What is the WrxFlo Transport Management System?
WrxFlo Transport Management System (TMS) is software that helps companies manage the logistics of moving physical goods – by land, air, or sea. It allows you to streamline your business by easily managing all transportation activity throughout your global supply chain, enabling haulage operators to plan and make logistical decisions, implementing those plans, and visualising the plans in real time, saving time, and reducing costs.
Benefits of the WrxFlo Transport Management System
The WrxFlo Transport Management System provides many benefits to businesses. Some of the top benefits are:
1. Real-Time Supply Chain Visibility
Transparency across the whole supply chain is now achievable with the WrxFlo Transport Management System. It is a big advantage to be able to see and access data from all other linked systems in real-time. Logistics managers can now identify and respond to potential problems more quickly and efficiently. As a result, client satisfaction is kept high without losing performance or efficiency.
The WrxFlo TMS allows you to see where your drivers and shipments are in real time. This offers information on how long a route takes, which can subsequently be used to design an effective route schedule. This also offers information on which drivers and routes are the most efficient.
2. Increased Order Accuracy
Real-time tracking improves the accuracy and efficiency of product transportation. It helps to eliminate any room for mistakes or errors, and in the event of a disaster, the problem may be resolved without impacting the consumer.
You can monitor their progress and provide feedback on areas where they need to improve. In addition, it improves security, especially in the event of a disaster, making the supply chain more efficient.
3. Reduces Freight Expenses
The WrxFlo Transport Management System assists businesses in reducing the amount of money spent on freight transportation and related expenditures. It allows customers to monitor data that can improve freight routes and delivery systems, allowing businesses to save money. Companies that cut their own freight prices will be able to provide lower-priced tier services to their clients and may even gain a cost edge over their competitors.
4. Improved Warehouse Productivity
The WrxFlo TMS can improve warehouse efficiency. The more frequently you utilize your transport management system, the less time you spend handling freight and the more time you have to focus on other activities, such as warehouse operations. If your TMS is integrated with other systems like your ERP, you will spend less time correcting errors caused by input errors or entering new data. You may further re costs and improve efficiency by deploying the WrxFlo Warehouse Management System in combination with your Transport Management System.

How the WrxFlo Transport Management System works
The WrxFlo Transport Management system is a cloud-based solution which uses an API to connect to the business management systems (ERP MES CRM etc). WrxFlo never sits on top of the business management system, which will slow it down. WrxFlo securely encrypts the data and extracts the relevant tables into the WrxFlo platform. Once it is extracted, the data can be converted into the necessary metrics for the business.
WrxFlo Transport Management System capabilities
The WrxFlo Transport Management System provides real-time data to enable you to make decisions quickly, preventing the empty running of the trucks and cost inefficiencies. The application measures truck and driver performance, which saves time and overall operational costs, as actions can be taken to correct the issues before they occur.
This cloud-based software schedules logistic planning activities, forwards delivery plans for the trucks and provides route optimisation. The WrxFlo TMS also comes in form of an application which can be used to manage deliveries, collections & orders. It also highlights key performance indicators and ensures that trucks are utilized effectively, while also providing predictive analysis of issues and reports on the maintenance and breakdown of trucks
Examples of how the WrxFlo Transport Management System has been used
One of our global customers implemented the WrxFlo TMS because they lacked visibility in their systems and operations. It was difficult for them to track a full order in one place and to update customers as to where their order was, at any given time. WrxFlo introduced the Transport Management system in their facility and created a suite of real-time metrics that connected both applications and allowed the company to extract KPI data to measure overall performance. This addressed any gaps the old system presented and allowed them to address any issues the process posed. Both applications are now connected in real-time, and the data retrieved from the WrxFlo TMS provides an enhanced customer experience and better visibility.
A Transportation Management System is a crucial tool in any company’s arsenal as the benefits it offers to the supply chain are unmatchable. TMS solutions that are implemented correctly consistently result in savings for the company that uses them. Any business would profit greatly from the advantages outlined above, as each business strives to please its clients with high-quality products and services. The WrxFlo TMS can be tailored to meet your company’s specific requirements. This latitude is provided to enable the greatest possible gain and efficiency. That being said, if you do not already have a TMS in place, now is the time to implement one.
