Using Insight TMS to produce bills of lading is a big time saver. Instead of manually producing legal documents, you can use a quick, automated process. Insight TMS also stores your data, making future bill of lading production fast and easy.


Track and Trace

Always knowing where your shipments are helps you stay ahead of the curve. With the track and trace feature in Insight TMS, you will be able to monitor the status of shipments that are in transit. Views and filters are customizable to your specific needs. But how much of an impact will track and trace really have on your business? Using this feature, you can effectively:

  • Plan for labor
  • Communicate with customers and vendors
  • Plan for production
  • Monitor and measure in-transit inventory
  • Quickly react to customer and intercompany transfer demands

With the Visibility and Collaboration Module, carriers are able to update shipment activity, so that participants in the process can be notified of milestones in the execution of every shipment. In the event that a shipment is not complete, our system will document, update and route information accordingly to pre-selected parties. With these capabilities you are able to reduce cost, improve service and expedite communication across your supply chain.


Seamless Integration

Because Insight TMS is capable of integrating with your ERP system, you avoid the burden of installation and maintenance. However, you also gain the advantages of being able to automate logistics functions. Insight TMS can be configured to perform a number of tasks that save you valuable time. Executing shipments, creating bills of lading, rate shopping and exception management are a few examples of what can be fully automated within Insight TMS.
