RedPrairie Enhances TMS Capabilities

09/10/2008
RedPrairie Corporation announces new features in its updated TMS release which is built especially for international users. Additions to the program include ocean, rail and air-based multi-modal transportation support, time-based transit service standards and enhanced geocoding. The new features are expected to allow transport by means other than roads, including barge and ferry travel over ocean or short sea, maximizing the most efficient transportation methods and allowing better transit time calculation, while lowering costs and environmental impact.

International shipping in and between regions without postal codes, such as areas within central China, has been a particularly difficult issue for manufacturers, but RedPrairie's new release features global map and guide support, while allowing customers to encode regions made up of locations as broad as multiple states or as specific as given address IDs.
