Beyond Basic Features: Important Transportation Management System (TMS) Capabilities

Editor’s Note: Indago ResearchCasts are brief videos where we highlight findings from our Indago supply chain research community.

With all of the transportation-related challenges companies are facing today, transportation management systems (TMS) are back in the spotlight. In October 2021, we asked members of our Indago supply chain research community — who are all supply chain and logistics professionals from manufacturing, retail, and distribution companies — “Beyond basic features and functions, how would you rate the importance of the following transportation management system capabilities when selecting a TMS?”

Watch the 3-minute video for some highlights from the survey results.
