Transplace Adds Visibility Standards for TMS Offerings
Transplace has set itself apart as a provider of transportation management services once again. The company is now known as the first to integrate real-time visibility as a standard for all of its TMS customers and offerings, without added costs. By adding this feature into standardization, the company provides customers with a broader picture of their freight with increased quality coverage and efficiencies. Additionally, customers are better equipped for proactive management operations and predicting supply chain disruptions.
“By making real-time visibility a core component of the Transplace Technology Platform, Transplace is providing an enterprise level, real-time control tower capability within reach for shippers of all sizes and scale,” said Frank McGuigan, CEO, Transplace. “And though our control tower has always provided visibility for our customers’ most service intensive shipments, we believe that the speed and accuracy of the technology has evolved to the point that, when applied across our $9B transportation network, it will enhance both our AI-powered service prediction capability as well as our Network Continuous Move solution, driving improved service and cost positions for our shippers.”
Descartes MacroPoint™ was confirmed as the visibility partner of choice, as Transplace will integrate into its current TMS solutions. The integration will focus on truckload/TL shipments in the U.S. and Canada beginning in January 2020 with additional regional expansions planned.
“Expanding our relationship to make real-time tracking the norm allows Transplace and Descartes to deliver even greater value to the market,” said Edward J. Ryan, CEO, Descartes. “Through our Descartes MacroPoint technology and network, Transplace can offer comprehensive visibility, opening new opportunities for efficiency, automation and predictive analytics to their customers.”
