Supply Chain Solutions Catering to Client Needs
CTSI-Global provides shippers and third-party logistics providers (3PLs) with end-to-end supply chain solutions: Transportation Management System (TMS), Business Intelligence, Freight Audit and Payment Services, and Consulting. Their end-to-end supply chain solutions empower shippers and 3PLs to plan and execute shipments, audit and pay their freight bills, and measure the results for continuous improvement of their supply chain and transportation networks.
CTSI-Global’s TMS is a SaaS-based system of applications to plan and execute shipments across all modes. Their clients use this TMS to manage orders, optimize loads, select carriers, execute and automate shipments, track and trace deliveries, and manage overage/shortage/damage claims. Their Business Intelligence Solutions include KPI dashboards that drill down to analyze various key performance indicators. Other solutions include Supply Chain Modeling and Online Reporting, such as the carrier report card.
In addition to technology solutions, CTSI-Global offers expert supply chain services including Freight Audit and Payment, Rate Negotiation, and Consulting.
CTSI-Global also provides scalable systems that are suited to 3PLs that manage many clients. These systems have additional features such as customer invoicing.
Some providers can only provide either TMS or freight audit and payment services. Others provide general software but lack the supply chain industry expertise. CTSI-Global has developed in-house software to anticipate the needs of clients. Furthermore, they are the only supply chain solutions provider with robust, flexible, scalable TMS and business intelligence solutions alongside industry-leading freight audit and payment services.
