Drayage & Intermodal Management System
Matching your driver schedules to the rail and port schedules controlling container availability is key to drayage efficiency. Tracking per diem schedules for each container, balancing resource allocations for inbound and outbound moves, capturing repair and maintenance items and chassis rental can all be streamlined and automated with TMW solutions for intermodal freight. For more productive and profitable operations in drayage, and for greater logistics management control and visibility in multi-modal transportation and freight forwarding, turn to TMW.
