Transporta offers a transport management system (TMS) allowing logistics companies handle entire order management and delivery fulfillment cycle from a single cloud platform.

“Many MSMEs are utilizing basic ERP systems whilst communicating on separate messaging apps and have been unable to capitalise on market-wide gains. This is a result of their fear of high costs and a challenging migration process in digitizing their operations,” said Emma Hartono, Chief Operating Officer of Transporta.

Transporta aims to resolve these worries and highlight the long-term advantages of digitalization, focusing on the utilization of TMS.

“By helping MSME truckers migrate conveniently online, Transporta helps them compete on a more level playing field with the big boys, with zero added costs. With our TMS, MSMEs can address inefficiencies such as idle trucks and empty hauls while integrating all their communications under one platform,” Emma added.

A digital logistics solution affordable for all 

Targeting smaller brands, the company has made its system simple, user-friendly and cost-effective so any trucking company will be able to install and use it hassle-free. The TMS streamlines every aspect of a trucking business on a single centralized cloud platform: submitting bids, managing orders, scheduling routes, assigning drivers, tracking deliveries, and invoicing clients.

Transporta’s TMS highlights:

  • Quick and easy self-onboarding process
  • No-cost staff support
  • Asset-light web-based solution
  • Seamless integration with existing apps like WhatsApp.
  • Free online training and enablement to new users

TMS, when implemented in developed nations, have resulted in cost savings of up to 15%, a game changer for MSMEs battling razor-thin operational margins. TMS also increases accountability and productivity by offering MSMEs a bird’s eye view of the entire operation, resulting in fewer human error and mismanagement, optimised and scalable logistics flow, and improved delivery performance.
