Transplace has introduced the Transplace Platform Services (TPS), a cloud-based suite that optimizes supply chain operations in concert with the user’s current transportation management system (TMS) infrastructure.
Through a standard Application Programing Interface (API), shippers provide Transplace platform shipping-level data in the frequency they desire—from weekly to real-time—depending on the services they plan to use. TPS harmonizes the shipping data and compares it to the Transplace network, benchmarking the shipper against other shippers on the platform and in their industry vertical. TPS guides shipper action, through advanced technology and collaboration tools and enables full network visibility in real time, automating manual shipment tracking activities and proactively managing exceptions.
TPS is enabled by a simple API into existing ERP or TMS systems. It has three distinct service offerings to meet shippers at their current level of maturity and capability:
TPS Data Insights allows benchmarking across the major key performance indicators of any transportation management program: cost, speed, and service. Data Insights also includes tactical reporting, such as weekly KPI reporting, performance dashboards, and on-demand data network analytics.
TPS Command Center includes full utilization of the Transplace Control Tower, which provides real-time visibility, AI-powered service prediction, and proactive transportation event monitoring.
TPS Marketplace unlocks the power of Transplace network collaboration services, enabling Platform Services shippers to partner with other Transplace shippers and a broad carrier network to capture carrier capacity through real-time freight auctions, long-term opportunistic continuous moves, collaborative dedicated fleet opportunities, or consolidation of less-than-truckload sized shipments through multi-stop truckloads and collaborative crossdocking.
