There are a number of reasons why shippers should care about sustainability. Looking at its most basic definition, sustainability means practices that can be maintained over the long haul. And in the modern sense, that carries over to practices today that won't cause undue environmental harm and thus hurt tomorrow. For shippers, finding solutions that work long-term seems like a pretty good idea. On top of that, customers care about sustainability, too. That means they're more likely to use shippers who share that value and use sustainable methods. Yet another reason shippers should care about sustainability? While in some cases there may be higher upfront costs - though not always - environmentally friendly shipping practices often save money over time. Plus, governments care about sustainable practices as well and tend to offer tax incentives to companies who adopt them. And finally, aside from all those factors, sustainability is the right thing to do for society - and future generations.

We talk with hundreds of transportation management software (TMS) system buyers every year.
The cloud TMS evolution has not only brought capabilities that were unthinkable just a few years ago, but it has also opened up the opportunities of companies of all sizes to top ties systems that previously were off limits because of cost.
It can be argued the transportation management software (TMS) system is the most important IT software platform companies need to drive a competitive advantage in their industry.
