Selecting the appropriate software for planning and operating transport at your company can be complex and complicated. The differences in the range of functions of the systems being offered are just too great. The TMS Guide simplifies the complex comparison of transport management systems.

Analysis of market and business field

Which opportunities does the market offer for my transport product? We analyse procurement markets for instance for transport services of rail transport, inland water transport or IT systems. And we also analyse sales markets for transport and logistics services, for example, in the steel, chemical and automobile sector.

Strategic Consulting for your Location

What is the potential of a location? Which markets can be opened up from there? We provide SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) for locations and services, adjusted to the developments of the logistics and transportation markets and the competition. This leads to a clear strategy for the development of your location.

Development and evaluation of price models

Performance-based pricing for outsourced distribution and transport networks represents a potential for conflict between customer and service provider, especially when terms and conditions and requirements change. We evaluate and test existing contracts and price models against current market prices.
