TMS Logistics

Are you looking for more productivity and efficiency while reducing your costs?

Management tools are the key to achieving your objectives, especially in the transport sector.

The TMS for Transport Management System is the essential tool to manage your goods flow.

Qu’est-ce qu’un TMS logistique ?

Un TMS Logistique est un logiciel d’aide à la gestion du transport qui permet de gérer les flux de transport dans la chaîne logistique d’une entreprise. Principalement destinés aux transporteurs et aux prestataires logistiques, les TMS sont des outils essentiels qui vous permettent de gérer une flotte de transport, et de chauffeurs, d’organiser les plannings de chargement, de déchargement et de livraisons et d’établir et gérer la facturation de la prestation.


A Logistics TMS is a key software tool for strategic, tactical and operational transportation management.

It is a tool for analyzing your activity, proposing efficient transport solutions while being adapted to your customers’ constraints. Essential, it allows the control in the totality of the logistic process and it is also an aid to the decision making for the carriers.

The logistics software must allow you to manage the activity of your transports in its totality. Thus, at the operational level, you have access to a real-time monitoring, allowing a qualitative traceability, with also a verification of the good routings of the deliveries. The TMS collects alerts, facilitates the issue and editing of transport order forms and invoicing documents, helps with bookings and facilitates the processing of disputes.


Today, a company wishing to develop its growth must look for differentiation levers. If price differentiation can be complicated to implement, quality of service and customer satisfaction are key elements to take into account, and this software is ideal to achieve your goals.

A TMS software has many advantages such as:

– Logistics performance,
– A reduction in transport costs,
– A gain in productivity,
– Improved customer service,
– Environmental impact control.

The Transport Management System tool mainly meets the needs of task automation, traceability of goods and deliveries, and optimization of processes and means of delivery by carriers. It also provides excellent management of the truck fleet.

Using a TMS software is to standardize, clarify and restore this information. With accessible, reliable and precise information, updated in real time, you will be able to better manage your delivery priorities, multimodal transport, breaking loads and export constraints. It is a tool that offers a better vision, in a global way, of the whole activity, allowing you to identify small problems and to remedy them at the very moment they occur.

A TMS also allows, in a continuous improvement process and thanks to the reporting established to follow and analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the transport function, to set up new measures aiming at improving the performance of your company. Indeed, thanks to the integrated reporting tools, the logistics TMS can automatically generate performance indicators such as logistics KPIs. Thanks to this, your company will be able to control the respect of delivery deadlines, the filling rate of the trucks, the occupation rate of the means of transport, the CO2 emissions, etc. and will also have the means to set up corrective or supplementary measures to improve its performances.

All of this is established with a view to reducing lead times, costs and improving quality.


EGO is a WMS integrating interface tools with a TMS in its functionalities. A real “logistics ERP”, EGO allows you to :

  • Inventory management within one or more warehouses
  • Supply management
  • Packaging
  • Control and management of physical flows
  • Warehousing
  • Integration with an e-commerce site solution…

In short, EGO integrates TMS functionalities into your supply chain management, which will enable you to manage your entire supply chain in order to optimize its operation and profitability.

Carrier appointment scheduling functionalities have been developed to optimize dockside unloading operations. When receiving, EGO can generate a confirmation of receipt by interfacing with a TMS. When preparing a customer order, EGO can generate transport orders and has algorithms for assigning “rounds” to carriers (chartering management), according to predefined constraints (weight, volume, rates, etc.).

This module also offers WMS interfacing locally or via webservices and APIs with the main courier operators (Chronopost, DPD, Geodis, DHL, Colissimo, etc.), in order to generate carrier labels (position) at the end of order preparation.

Finally, EGO generates all the necessary documentation (delivery note, packing list, carrier’s discount, etc.) given to the carrier and can be interfaced to a TMS, for example, for shipment confirmation…
