A3logics as its premier technology partner, the client was
facing a multitude of challenges like:
Inefficient Operations: 4PL sought to streamline its
operations related to order handling and management by
introducing automation. Its current transportation management
software (TMS) was a decade old and underdeveloped to keep up
with changing market demands. The limited automation
capabilities of existing TMS were limiting its employee's
Poor Visibility: The customers of 4PL were facing hard times
interacting with them due to poor TMS interface and
integration support. They were unable to get instant updates
about orders, load capacity, and deliveries. Due to poor
carrier connectivity, the 4PL was unable to fulfill orders.
Productivity: The employees of 4PL were wasting too much time
in manual, redundant processes because of the poor performance
of its legacy TMS. This was hampering 4PLs ability to deliver
efficient, cost-effective, and reliable services in the
Route Optimization: The legacy TMS of the client was unable to
support sophisticated optimization algorithms and data
analysis tools for finding the best route in real time that
can be executed. Adding to that, the system was not intuitive
enough to be utilized for complex projects.
Given the bulk of technology challenges in TMS, the client was
actively looking for a new, advanced TMS solution in the
market that could fulfill their business needs. The company's
unit managers, warehouse coordinators, and supply chain
analysts were all in unison to find a transportation solution
that could speed up integrations, improve automation, and
bring Visibility to their supply chain processes. After many
system reviews in the market, the company selected A3logics to
build a customized TMS solution for eliminating its supply
A3logics crafted a customized, intuitive, and multi-mode TMS
for the 4PL vendor that optimizes the organization's
transportation operations. The European 4PL giant prefers the
A3logics solution as it is robust and provides them the
flexibility to configure the system as per their business
needs. The other reason behind this engagement was the A3
team's commitment to delivering a solution that overcomes
their key performance bottlenecks. A3logics worked closely
with 4PLs supply chain partners and employees to understand
their issues for building a TMS that accelerates the
order-to-cash cycle within a single system by keeping everyone
in the loop.
By utilizing sophisticated transportation algorithms, multiple
data entry points in the supply chain, and actual rate cost,
transportation software development experts at A3logics came

plans that can be actually implemented. Performing route
design, optimization, and execution - all can be done within a
single system for handling even the most complex projects.
Despite handling complicated projects, the solution from

administrative process so our people can focus on what's more
important - serving customers. A3logics custom TMS helps us
exactly achieve that and unlock real-world savings by
providing actionable insights,"-said a business unit manager
at the 4PL. Let's Start
