Today, we launched our Transportation Management System (TMS), a tool that enables shippers to manage all of their freight in a centralized place. The new TMS builds on the success of our award-winning Marketplace, which currently allows shippers to get instant freight quotes, book with high quality Opus9 carriers and track their shipments in real-time.
While nearly every other industry has gone digital, utilizing technology to create orders and ease for long and tedious processes, the shipping industry is still playing catch-up. Rising freight costs, heightened customer expectations, and manual processes, hinder the ability in which businesses remain competitive. The right technology can make all the difference in elevating supply chains, reducing costs, and eliminating operational inefficiencies.
This is an exciting era of digital transportation accelerating the speed and quality of supply chain operations. Our goal is to be a one-stop shop for shippers regardless of the size of their network. With Opus9's TMS, shippers can use the carrier of their choice, send automated RFQ emails, manage bids, award tenders, and seamlessly track their shipments in real-time.
Some features of the Opus9 TMS include:
- Customer, vendor, and carrier management
- FTL/LTL shipment creation, rating and booking
- Opus9 instant rates
- GPS tracking of shipments
- Digitized documentation
- Built-in automation
- Freight and payment auditing
We are excited to offer this and more, for free, to shippers nationwide. It starts with a quick sign up, and unlocks unlimited opportunities for efficient shipping.
