Managed Transportation Service

Managed Transportation Services Solutions (Managed TMS) involve shippers outsourcing their Freight and logistics processes to a third party logistics (3PL) provider. Managed Transportation services is all about empowering the Shipper with choice and creating true partnerships between a logistics service provider and the Shipper using a combination of strategic planning, execution, technology, and managed services. It’s really a blur between execution and planning and delivering managed Transportation excellence within the context of the shipper’s transportation performance metrics. This leads to a holistic approach of “best practice” managed Transportation services and leading-edge technology which are designed to reduce unnecessary expenses and provide greater visibility to cost savings opportunities. Managed TMS is also referred to as a Freight Management Vendor.
