How a TMS Can Help Your Small Business

Transportation management systems aren’t just for large shipping operations. Small and large operations alike can benefit from a company like Freightview.

When it comes to technology it is easy to assume it comes with a big price tag and a huge implementation process, which can feel really intimidating for anyone, but especially a small business. Freightview has a relatively low cost (our pricing starts at just $99 a month) and is incredibly fast and simple to setup.

The benefits a TMS can bring to a small business really do mirror the same benefits they bring to a larger shipping operation.

Overcoming Challenges Shippers Like You Face

Visiting Every Carrier Site: It can be extremely time consuming for a shipper to do their due diligence and get a rate quote for every carrier they have direct rates with. A sale can be lost in the time it takes someone to get a potential customer an accurate rate quote on a shipment. If you’re a small team you really need to focus on efficiency and a tool like Freightview helps with that.

Routing Guides: Routing guides may seem like a good solution but they get outdated SO quickly. The time and labor it takes in order to keep them current can add up over time
