In our November 16th post I provided information about the two typical segments of mobile retail solutions—In-Store Systems and Distribution Systems. Today I’d like to take a closer look at one type of distribution center solution, Transportation Management Systems.
Transportation Management Systems include mobile computing systems which are used in all functions related to handling the logistics of moving inventory from a distribution center to a store. Mobile computing and scanning systems used in Transportation Management Systems typically include the following functions:
- Yard Management
- Traffic Management
- Dispatch and Routing
- Vehicle Location-Based Services
- Vehicle and Driver Logs
Transportation Management Systems streamline operations and ensure that your products are positioned in your stores when your customers need them, so you can maximize profits.
