Transportation Management

What is Transportation Management

Transportation Management reduces transportation cost and increases delivery reliability through collaboration across all modes and providers.

GT Nexus Transportation Management allows companies to manage their international and domestic transportation, tackling supply chain complexity with integration to partner systems and a single control layer for monitoring the lifecycle of transportation. Bids are completed on the platform, contracts are awarded, execution is monitored, and changes made based on detailed analysis of transportation data. Shippers, suppliers, and logistics service providers all collaborate in the cloud with Transportation Management.
