An integrated global solution
A state-of-the-art transportation management solution should have more than comprehensive functionality, a services oriented architecture and web deployment. It should also have systems that are intuitive, graphical and simple to configure – systems that make transportation management easier, more visible, and highly adaptive, not just more efficient. That’s the extra value of RedPrairie Transportation Management.
Transportation Management Solutions
From procurement to settlement
From managing the bid and procurement process to accurate, automated settlement, and everything in between, RedPrairie’s Transportation Management solution will help you streamline transportation operations, reduce costs, comply with international shipping regulations, and provide greater visibility and control over the entire process.
A window to the world
In today’s internet-centric world, there is no reason not to have complete visibility and communications between all interested parties in transport operations. You should not only know where your shipments are at any time, you should also be able to interact with all parties to set appointments, overcome obstacles, and verify receipt.
With the high cost of equipment, fuel and labor, making the most productive use of your private fleet has become a business imperative. Optimizing fleet delivery planning and execution can improve utilization, reduce costs, and increase customer satisfaction. But there are a lot of variables involved and delivery problems can pop up quickly.
Good things come in small packages
The explosion of online ordering coupled with inventory strategies that favor smaller, more frequent orders have greatly expanded the importance of efficiently managing parcel shipments. Consolidating shipments, selecting carriers and getting the best rates are critical to cost control, but almost impossible without the new breed of parcel management systems.

If your transportation management strategy still relies on “dialing for diesel,” you’re at a significant cost and service disadvantage compared to your competition. The same is true if your transportation management is spread across multiple sites, systems and providers. To be competitive in today’s high cost – high service environment, you need a comprehensive approach to all of your transportation needs, from procurement to settlement, from parcel to truckload shipments, and from local to global delivery. And this is true of both inbound and outbound operations. It’s a tall order, but one you can handle easily and effectively with a world-class system like RedPrairie’s Transportation Management.
