Multimodal TMS

Domestic shipper-centric multimodal transportation management systems (TMSs) are used in a specific region or geography to manage domestic freight operations. These are used to plan movements, perform rating and shipping across all modes (truckload, less than truckload [LTL], air, parcel, rail and intermodal), consolidate orders, select the appropriate route and carrier, communicate (tender) with carriers, and manage freight bills and payments.
