Do you ever stop to think how America's Fourth of July celebrations including food, drink, and fireworks, all come together?

To meet the needs of an omnichannel environment (or simply expand to accommodate sales growth), retailers and ecommerce companies need to move products through the supply chain faster, get them closer to the end customer and minimize transportation costs.

When it comes to customer satisfaction, quality control is a top priority...as a direct seller, how can you be sure your customers’ orders are fulfilled correctly every time?

The majority of American shoppers (62.2 percent) say free online shipping is “very important,” according to a consumer survey by the National Retail Federation.

As we enter the last half of 2018, companies will continue to turn to technology to increase efficiencies while at the same time begin addressing industry constraints such as the electronic logging device mandate, tariffs, diesel prices, higher rates, capacity crunch, and the customer experience.

With e-commerce now making up a total of 17% of all retail sales in the USA, retailers need to put their focus on improving their supply chains in order to win and retain business.

With shipping expenses growing at a rate of over 5% per year, this is clearly a substantial expense for any company; however, implementing a transportation management system can keep shipping costs to a minimum and bring a business significant transportation and freight savings.

There is almost no limit to how a Transportation Management System can benefit your unique supply chain, the key to success is finding the right TMS for your goals, so before selecting a TMS, use the 12 questions in this buyer’s guide to find the best solution for your company.

The Enterprise Resource Planning Integration Highway is a common integration approach to all ERP systems, and integrating purchase orders directly from an ERP system to and from a TMS facilitates the rapid creation of shipments.

This guide takes you through the seven steps for selecting the right TMS for your business - you’ll get insights and suggestions from those who recently purchased their own TMS, as well as industry experts so that you can narrow your search and find the TMS that solves your supply chain challenges.

As global trade shifts with the changing times, shipping management is becoming more important, more time consuming, and more expensive for companies.

In a 2017 American Shipper Report on global sourcing, 58% of shippers indicated that their biggest concern today is rising transportation costs.

Marking a milestone in its mission to revolutionize how freight is shipped, Kuebix has surpassed 10,000 companies using its transportation management system, more than doubling its customer base in 3 months.
