TransportGistics: An Incremental Approach to Logistics Management
Alan Miller, President
In the words of Bill gates, “The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.”The same lies true for transportation management and logistics industry that has been confronting newer market challenges concerning efficiency in its course; especially with the advent of digital transformation and automation entering the play. However, managing the costs of moving goods through the supply chain is not always a plain sailing for shippers and consignees. As a single shipment involves inter-company and intra-company transactions and communications, the streamlining process of its supply chain needs to be simplified. This is where TransportGistics comes into the picture—a global, multi-product and services firm specialized in market leading, simple, incremental solutions for transportation management and logistics functions within the supply chain. “Our easy-to-use and implement cloud solutions assist the users to effectively reduce, uncover, and avoid excessive transportation and logistics costs,” says Alan Miller, President of TransportGistics.
Complying with modern market dynamics each solution incorporated by TransportGistics is multimodal and global in scale and scope. The firm’s prime focus is to approach shortcomings of the Procure-to-Pay transportation process with its solutions. “Because simply negotiating, executing, and implementing new transportation rates and pricing does not guarantee the delivery of the anticipated cost savings,” adds Miller.

In order to achieve best returns, either the Logistics Management Solution (LMS) needs to be adapted to organization’s processes or the organization’s processes must be adapted to the LMS workflow. “Our innovative, incremental strategy for assisting and enabling our customers to achieve cost effective independence from legacy practices has been highly lucrative for them, generating results in double digit cost savings and cost avoidance,” he affirms.
However, with the help of TransportGistics’ unique adaptive approach to Incremental LMS Acquisition, companies have an advantage of mitigating the risk by deploying a series of solutions in consecutive fashion while propelling a shorter run up to ROI. This serves to accelerate savings and decelerate expenditures. It further reduces the impact on existing, macro-operations and provides a greater degree of flexibility as changing a plan is more preferable and easier than changing installed systems and processes.
TransportGistics’ TGIBid solution helps in both simplifying and improving the acquisition of carriers while significantly reducing the costs. While, the RoutingGuides. com solution offered by the firm make sure that all parties involved in the transaction have the complete knowledge of the proper carrier and associated rules of engagement. “Our InsourceAudit solution validates invoice veracity and supplier performance, while accomplishing accounting tasks, and providing business analytics,” adds Miller. In addition to this, the company’s TGIRater solution supports logistics planning functions, while BLGen, FreightTracing, and ProductReturns fill out vital logistics execution functions.
The firm’s incremental approach and its adaptive solutions are steadily focused on solving experiential issues, whereas deploying all-at-once LMS solutions requires a longer outlook relying upon forecasts and predictions; all the while running the risk of magnifying legacy inefficiencies. “We strongly believe that a single-minded focus on the newest technologies and hunting for challenges that these new technologies might solve is counter-productive and inefficient. New technology may be exulted but only if it meets genuine business need,” concludes Miller.
