2. Transportation Execution Ė TMS will allow for the execution of the transportation plan such as carrier rate acceptance, carrier dispatching, EDI etc..
3. Transport follow-up Ė TMS will allow following any physical or administrative operation regarding transportation: traceability of transport event by event (shipping from A, arrival at B, customs clearance, etc.), editing of reception, custom clearance, invoicing and booking documents, sending of transport alerts (delay, accident, non-forecast stopsÖ)
