Crowley Logistics, a provider of logistics services worldwide, has expanded its use of the 3G-TM transportation management system (TMS) from 3Gtms Inc for its inland transportation customers.
Implementation of the 3Gtms solution is consistent with Crowley’s objective of increasing the velocity of customers’ supply chains and reducing their total landed costs. Crowley does that with 3Gtms’ Optimization and Execution tools, which facilitate management of transportation challenges and unpredictable hurdles. Additionally, carriers and other partners benefit from easier integration through faster onboarding and lower costs.
A transportation management system (TMS) typically integrates with enterprise resource planning (ERP) software or warehouse management system (WMS) and takes over where those systems step out. TMS can be used for tracking, planning and optimization purposes. When used properly customers can see efficiency cost reductions and improvements in order visibility.
The partnership between Crowley and 3Gtms gives Crowley another tool to provide flexible and dynamic services to both commercial and public sector customers.
“We chose 3Gtms because it offered the best TMS on the market to help us achieve our goals of expanding and optimizing our transportation offerings,” said Carl Fox, Crowley’s senior vice-president, corporate services. “The 3Gtms team has been outstanding through implementation, integration and training. Our ability to deliver and enhance the efficiency of the customer supply chain is strengthened by this partnership.”
“We are pleased that the enhanced 3G capabilities will continue to advance our core principles and objectives for our supply chain customers, which are to improve the overall velocity of their supply chains—and in doing so, help reduce their total overall landed cost,” said Crowley’s Frank Larkin, senior vice-president and general manager, logistics and commercial services.
