Transport Management System

Transport Management System

The challenges facing the transport and logistics sector are increasing rapidly. Ensuring short delivery times with high delivery quality and service orientation is just one of the few requirements that customers expect.

Transport Management System at SCM

Transport Management System, in short TMS, is a big term and the application areas are diverse: intralogistics, dispatching, mail order, wholesale and more. COSYS TMS software solutions are divided into: Parcel Management, Electronic Route Management and Load Management. With any TMS software from COSYS, the focus is on tracking the parcels and goods. Tracking is enabled by modern barcode technology. This provides users with transparency and absolute traceability at the shipment and package level.

The installation of the software is up to you. Each solution can be operated on its own or seamlessly integrated into existing system landscapes. To install the system, you either use COSYS Software as a Service or operate the system classically as an On Premise variant.

The COSYS Transport Management System offers you as much standard as possible and as much customization as necessary. The modular software structure ensures a flexible yet solid basic framework, as do the numerous setting options with regard to features and functions. The various settings are based on hundreds of customer projects and thus come directly from day-to-day business. From practice for practice. Market requirements, industry specifications and individual customer processes are taken into account.

Transport Management

The solutions in the area of transport management are divided into mobile route processing and loading equipment management. A combination of the two transport solutions is possible without any problems. Both solutions are used in wholesale and already have industry-specific functions for the HVAC and building materials trade, automotive suppliers, electrical wholesalers and technical trade in the standard scope.

With COSYS Transport Management, you not only get seamless delivery and load carrier documentation, but your employees are efficiently guided through the processes. In mobile tour processing, a driver app ensures that everything is loaded and unloaded according to the loading list and delivery bill. For each tour stop and package, your fleet receives sufficient documentation with proof of delivery and information on damage and problems. You benefit from a cleanly managed pallet exchange via a loading equipment management system integrated separately or in the driver app.

Package management

Package management solutions include the three application areas: Parcel transport, parcel store and in-house mail distribution. These address delivery services, parcel stores and larger companies with regular in-house mail volumes. Although the solutions differ, they pursue the same goals. These goals include shipment tracking, error-free parcel acceptance and delivery, and good service, for example in the form of automatic e-mail notification when parcels arrive or are delivered.

A transport management system is used in logistics, more precisely in the transport of goods and commodities.

COSYS software solutions for package management and transport management differ in logic and modules. Each software is composed of modules tailored to processes in the different areas. Parcel Management mainly considers modules for sender-receiver processes, i.e. parcel acceptance, pickup or delivery.
