Wondering what the benefits are of good TMS software?
If you’ve been getting by with a TMS you’ve had forever, or if you think you’re fine with spreadsheets, it’s time to take a good hard look at the benefits of really good TMS software.
The software has changed quite a bit in the last year, leading to some significant improvements in optimization that finds the best loads, driver load assignment, easier document management, and much more. One easy way to see the benefits of these improvements is to look at the numbers.
In the chart below, you can see the improvements that one Axele customer saw after adopting Axele and conducting a load profitability analysis.
As you can see, average revenue per driver per day increased by $186, or nearly 23%. Put another way, if your driver drives 300 days per year (the average for drivers), that means $55,800 more per year. And that’s just one driver.
The other improvements listed will also result in a nice improvement to your bottom line—wouldn’t you like to get more driver miles per day, and more revenue per mile? How about reducing your deadhead miles?
What are other benefits of good TMS software?
But the chart only lists 4 benefits—what are the additional improvements? How about:
Automatically finding the best rates and margins?
Marco Harris of Success Logistics reports: “Axele automatically populates the best rates and the best profitability margin.”
Reducing customer calls?
Carlos Waldo of Joined as One, LLC says: “I used to get two to three calls per day per customer. Now, when I send them the Axele link, they only call when the load is picked up to verify count or serial number.”
Reducing your time to bill?
Amanda Schuier of Quality Transport reports: “Quickbooks integration is reducing our time to bill.”
Saving you time creating loads?
Sami Deschamps of South Coast Carriers says: “I’m saving about 11 hours per week creating loads.”
