TMS and Intelligent Logistics
Transportation Management System (TMS) Uses Artificial Intelligence to Optimize Your Entire Transportation Network
One Network’s TMS in the Intelligent Logistics solution provides all the benefits of a Transportation Management System, plus additional services. It uses One Network’s NEO technology and intelligent agents to provide automated decision-making technology that solves upstream and downstream issues that directly affect your transportation. The Intelligent Logistics solution is naturally integrated with other network services like Intelligent Supply and Intelligent Demand, to provide real-time visibility and control across your entire supply chain network. This makes One Network’s Intelligent Logistics solution a unique offering in the market.
A Transportation Management System that Optimizes Across the Entire Network
One Network has successfully allowed Safeway to streamline and centralized our transportation and appointment scheduling functions. We have benefited by reducing labor costs, improving our supply chain predictability and visibility, and reducing overall transportation costs.

All Intelligent Logistics services are fully integrated within a single cloud-based system, the Real Time Value Network™, subscribers have the ability to choose only those services they initially need while retaining the ability to easily add other services in the future. For example, a company that needed traditional TMS functionality would use Intelligent Logistics for transportation planning and optimization, transportation execution, and financial reconciliation.
However unlike traditional systems, which optimize only what lies within a given enterprise’s four walls, Intelligent Logistics leverages the multi-party nature of the Real Time Value Network platform to provide TMS capabilities to all service providers in the transportation ecosystem, giving Intelligent Logistics subscribers visibility and control over all transportation transactions. This is one reason why a TMS with Intelligent Logistics is especially well suited for managing 3PLs and shippers with complex transportation networks.
Subscribers to Intelligent Logistics can also easily go beyond traditional TMS and add services that manage its parcel shipments, yards, fleets (including private), dock door scheduling, and global trade processes, the result being a system that optimizes the entire logistics lifecycle. All of this in a single system, accessible anywhere in the world via an internet browser. To achieve this elsewhere would require stacking multiple point solutions on top of one another, in the process creating system integration problems and even more complexity, leading to disappointing results.
