If you're a trucking business owner, then you know that transportation management is a critical part of your operations. At TransPlus we've seen our best-in-class Transportation Management Software (TMS) transform trucking businesses, making them much more efficient and profitable.

If you're not using a TMS, there's a strong chance you're putting yourself at a competitive disadvantage. And if you're in the market for a system, we know we have the best solution.

Don't take our word for it. TransPlus Fleet Manager is one of the highest-rated TMS platforms on Capterra!

So, what makes us the best choice for your trucking business? Well aside from our satisfied customers, best-in-class support, and exciting new investments, we offer a few things that make us the best in the business. But first, a quick overview of TMS.

What is a Transportation Management System (TMS)?

A Transportation Management System (TMS) is used for managing deliveries across the supply chain. In addition to improving fleet management and improving supply chain management, TMS software helps businesses increase the effectiveness of their fleet while reducing costs. A TMS combines disparate systems, such as accounting and dispatch management, into a single platform and is a powerful way to reduce costs and increase shipment performance.

Even more importantly, a great TMS like TransPlus (we’re a little biased) can take a lot of work out of common tasks, including how to disseminate information more effectively to operators. And they can help maintain situational awareness, with intelligent software able to flag and share road conditions, safety issues, and other hazards based on feedback from connected driver systems.

TransPlus TMS Software for Trucking Business Features

TransPlus is the most intuitive and easy-to-use TMS for fleets of any size. Our software can quickly transform your business, dramatically reducing costs while improving efficiencies.

Improve Operational Efficiency

TransPlus connects all aspects of your business to improve workflow. This includes everything from order entry to customer invoicing, dispatching to driver payroll. This not only increases efficiencies but can reduce operational costs.

Go From Paper to Digital

With a TMS, you'll be able to automate a lot of your manual processes, from creating and managing manifests to collecting signatures. By moving away from paper, you eliminate a significant source of data entry errors that can slow down your operations. A TMS also allows for the automatic generation of shipping documents, which will save time and reduce errors.

Reduce Shipment Delays

Getting enhanced visibility on truck, trailer and shipment locations can help you avoid costly holdups. A TMS has tools to simplify and streamline your tracking and tracing. Whether you are crossing the border or doing local shipments, TransPlus has tools to simplify and streamline your tracking and tracing.

Improve Dispatch Operations

Effective dispatch operations are critical to your operations. With TransPlus, dispatching is easy. You can build trips, load shipments, and communicate with drivers from the Trip Board, or create Contracts, source Carrier Availability and build a Carrier Scorecard from the Contract Board. Whether you are farming out your loads or delivering them with your own fleet, TransPlus can help improve your dispatching from start to finish!

Improved Payroll and Invoicing

Your business runs on making and receiving payments. TransPlus links your orders and trips, to eliminate complicated and time-consuming payroll and invoicing processes. TransPlus simplifies and streamlines your financial processes.

Pre-built Integrations that Extend Functionality

Most TMS solutions come with pre-built integrations with other software systems, such as accounting, warehouse management, and driver payroll. These integrations extend the functionality of the TMS and make it easier for businesses to manage their entire supply chain from a single platform. TransPlus' TMS integrates with over 20 partners, such as Intuit QuickBooks, Samsara, and Geotab, to provide powerful, out-of-the-box solutions that are easy to set up.

The Added Value of a Cloud-hosted TMS

Another decision you'll need to make is whether you want a Cloud-hosted or on-premise (on-prem) TMS. Cloud-hosted Transportation Management Systems provide a wide variety of business benefits compared to traditional on-premise systems including:

  • Reduced infrastructure and maintenance costs
  • Increased flexibility and scalability
  • Access from anywhere, at any time
  • Enhanced security and disaster recovery
  • Faster deployment
  • Automatic updates and enhanced security

At TransPlus, our Cloud-Hosted solution, is making it easier for our customers to scale their business while reducing upfront infrastructure costs and ongoing in-house IT support. 36% of our customer base has already made the switch!

A Solution for All Sizes

Even if you have a smaller fleet with only a few trucks, you can benefit from a TMS! Our industry-leading TMS system, Fleet Manager, comes in several versions (Lite, Regular and Enterprise). Even with a small fleet, you can transform your operations.

No matter your size, if you're still using spreadsheets and manually arranging transport, a TMS is for you.
