Transwide TMS Software


 

Transwide is a modular and carrier neutral Transportation Management Solution that is delivered in a Software as a Service format. The suite of integrated modules provides the tools for carriers to source, plan, execute, settle, and analyze operations with exceptional efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Transwide is ideal for shippers who are looking to take advantage of the benefits of automating their transportation and logistics operations and processes in a way that allows for minimal risk, rapid ROI, and achievable deployment objectives. The modularity and “pay as you go” business model enables companies to deploy a TMS solution at a pace that won’t overtax their logistics, operational resources, or IT resources. It offers the opportunity to deliver ROI on every transaction; scale up with additional modules, functionality, or volumes; or scale out to additional sites, carriers, logistics partners, vendors, or customers.

Transwide has support, sales, and implementation staff stationed in offices in New York, Brussels, Shanghai and São Paulo. They are already trusted partners for over two hundred companies across four continents. Transwide TMS solution customers vary in size of company, revenues, and transportation spend, and we typically recommend the system to companies with over three hundred million dollars in annual revenue. While many partner with Transwide to manage their over-the-road freight, the solution also supports ocean freight, barge, rail and intermodal transportation. 

Transwide was named a 2014 Top 100 Logistics IT Provider by Inbound Logistics as well as a 2014 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Provider by Food Logistics.

We were the first U.S. company to start using Transwide. We utilize the tendering product to get our orders to truckload carriers. It saves us a lot of time and errors in the tendering process. Our carriers like it a lot with the 24/7/365 system availability.

Pros

Simplicity of use and clear organized transport order information for the users.
Login is fast, easy to add users, TW Support is very reactive and helpful for both Shipper and Carriers. Don't have to keep changing password like a lot of systems.
System updates are always done on weekends.

Cons

Screen changes are a bit slow (about 15-30 seconds per screen).
Scheduled down time is always planned for best time in Europe so is always during U.S. business hours.

Advice to Others

You can choose what products you want to use, don't have to use all of them. So it is flexible to your needs.

Thanks for your feedback Debbie. Since the Transwide solutions are all run in the "cloud", system speeds are subject to local bandwidth issues. Your site is the only one of 15 within your company that experiences speed issues. Also, Carmeuse should be implementing advance Reporting options from Transwide within the next few weeks that should provide you the reporting you are looking for

I am an occasional user & find it user-friendly. It's normally difficult to work on a system when you don't access it on a regular basis. I find this system to be stress-free, once you've been provided with some initial training.

Pros

It's easy to follow & understand.

Cons

None.

I have had an overall great experience with Transwide. It has helped us to become more efficient with tendering loads to the carriers and has helped out a lot with detention costs.

Pros

The carriers being able to get their loads almost instantly.

Cons

Sometimes when navigating through the system it can be a little slow.

Transwide is by far the best dock appointment scheduling site that I have used. Open time slots are easy to identify, and capture. The slots are tailored to each facility based on their ability to handle inbound or outbound volume, resulting in less wait time for drivers.

Pros of Transwide: Reduces phone calls to carriers, improves tracking.
Cons of Transwide: Transwide does not feed changes in Transwide to SAP.

Thanks for the nice review and feedback.

I believe that your SAP team is looking at taking an integrated "feed" back from Transwide as part of your SAP redeployment project. This would give greater real-time visibility of these appointments to other stakeholders within your organization.

I have no other web based scheduling systems to compare it to, so I ask carriers that do. There are only a few carriers that use web based systems like this and they think Transwide is the best. The customer service person I deal with is Stephanie and she is fantastic. The only reason I rated customer service where I did is because if she isn't there the service level drops very low. A major concern of this system is that it is wide open. Anyone that uses the system can wreck havoc on it. They can delete appointments, activate schedules, delete schedule templates, etc with no traceability. Inserting a new group in a schedule is impossible without doing a whole new schedule. That is extremely time consuming.

Thanks for the valuable feedback Tom. We agree, Stephanie is fantastic. You'll be glad to know that Transwide is opening a 2nd Support office on June 1st, in Pittsburgh, to provide additional localized support and increased response time and quality. Separately, the software definitely allows for role-based access to certain areas of functionality. We'll have Support contact you to help configure the user roles at your facility..
