What is TMS?
A transportation management system (TMS) is a logistics technology platform that helps businesses plan, execute, and optimize the transportation of incoming and outgoing goods and ensure shipments are compliant and properly documented. This kind of system is often part of a larger supply chain management system. A TMS provides visibility into shippers’ transportation operations, trade compliance information, and documentation and ensures the timely delivery of freight and goods. A TMS is essential in modern transportation and logistics to help streamline shipping processes and facilitate better management of transportation operations, no matter the modes used.
What is a TMS system today? Modern TMS software includes features that can dramatically reduce complexity and improve efficiency. Key features include:
Load planning (route optimization, modal conversions, carrier management)
Load execution (booking, tendering)
Freight tracking (status updates)
Payment (settlement, auditing, billing)
Optimizations & Reporting (KPI tracking, analytics)

What Our Clients Are Saying
We’ve been live for over a month, and typically I would have closed [the project] earlier, but it was so smooth that I lost track of time! I have to admit, this was by far my favorite project to work on, and it isn’t just because of its speed, a record 4.5 months! Your team is among the best I’ve worked with. They’re engaging, involved, help make decisions to keep us going, understand our needs, and course-correct effectively. Our success reflects the strength of CLX and our partnership. We’re grateful for CLX Global TMS and the optimizations it brings to our approach, so thank you.
Save Time, Save Money & Improve Service with TMS
Increased Profitability for Everyone
Many large companies struggle with distribution challenges and high transportation costs. Transporting chemicals from one point to another requires a safe and carefully coordinated approach, especially since transportation spending is more variable in today’s environment. Consequently, a 1% improvement in supply chain efficiencies can significantly improve profit margins. However, managing every shipment stage—over the ocean and the last mile—can be highly complicated, especially during ongoing supply chain disruptions. CLX Global TMS provides the broadest visibility and carrier coverage across all modes and re-usable connections to shippers, forwarders, 3PLs, and others to help orchestrate simple and complex supply chain scenarios.
Higher Levels of Service
Chemical suppliers are under constant pressure to deliver their goods safely, more quickly and efficiently, on time, and at lower price points. At the same time, limited capacity and unpredictable fuel costs create strong headwinds. Without visibility into open capacity, comparative rates, and performance history, organizations often incur higher costs per mile, face numerous delivery delays, and settle for less-than-perfect service. CLX Global TMS answers these concerns with access to the largest carrier network across all modes and regions, plus strong partnerships with digital freight brokerages and a single unified platform so you can select the optimal provider for your shipments.
Enhanced Shipment Tracking and Tracing
Visibility into the status of your shipments provides all stakeholders with reliable, real-time updates for goods on the move. Carrier updates through CLX Global TMS’ global network powered by E2open’s e2net provide accurate answers to the question “Where’s my stuff?” This capability helps business leaders make optimal decisions in any scenario.
Connected Global Trade, Channel, and Supply Chain Ecosystems
Transportation Management is part of CLX Global TMS’ connected supply chain platform. CLX Global TMS provides a unique, end-to-end, cloud-based platform architecture, best-of-breed applications, and harmonized, decision-grade data from an expansive multi-tier global network of suppliers, manufacturers, transporters, and fulfillment channels. All this combines as a single source for real-time insight and actionable information across your entire chemical supply chain. The end value is a connected and efficient supply chain moving as one.
Scaling with your Business
Shippers have access to a variety of TMS options. The key to choosing the right TMS is to select one that aligns with your network’s level of complexity. To put it as simply as possible, if your TMS hasn’t brought you significant savings, you need a new one. CLX Global TMS enables world-class transportation solutions with plug-and-play speed and efficiency that scales as your business size and needs change. The CLX Logistics Deployment Methodology ensures on-time projects that deliver ROI at go-live, offering positive cash flow in one to four months and full cost recovery well within the first year.
To augment and enhance our Transportation Management Services, CLX Logistics provides real-world expertise with customized supply chain services that ensure you deliver on time in full every time.
