Riverside Logistics TMS system provides insight to shippers for the best LTL carrier choices.

LTL Metrics

Introducing Logistically TMS:

Logistically TMS (LyTMS) was designed with simplicity in mind.  The system provides shippers with insight into the best carrier choices for their customer by listing cost and transit information across a wide variety of carrier choices. This allows the user to make an up-to-date informed decision consistent with their immediate requirements for cost and service. Once carrier selection is decided based on your customer requirements, the bill of lading and tendering functions can be generated right from the quote screen, making the transaction very efficient.  The Dashboards will allow you to view your shipping patterns and track your costs and shipments in real time. The Logistically TMS offers additional benefits to help manage your freight accurately.

  • Automated shipment tracking and event notification.
  • Pre-loaded customer database addresses and information.
  • Changes to the bill of lading can be done and updated while in the system.
  • Total cost metrics are available on demand per customer or carrier
  • Multiple users with varying levels of access can be setup as needed
  • Quotes can be saved and retrieved at any time to tender to the carrier
