A TMS (Transport Management System) is expected to reduce wasted mileage, improve fleet utilisation, track costs, increase visibility and accountability and improve customer satisfaction. But how to choose an effective TMS to achieve all above benefits and move from a paper based system?
Fleet Utilisation Optimisation:
Under-utilisation of fleets is a major issue for Hauliers. Traditionally managed fleets can experience up to 55% more in-efficiency than a fleet with an intelligent TMS. This provides a vast opportunity for improvement in transport planning. Proteo TMS offers features such as Dynamic Route Planning, Live Monitoring, Delivery Scheduling Management via our real-time Arrivals Board. These features give the Hauliers flexibility and insight in real-time to deal with problems such as traffic management, extra incurred costs, delivery scheduling issues.

All of these features help in improving fleet utilisation significantly and reduce fuel costs immediately.
