Carrier TMS Software Solution for Transportation Management

EKA’s Carrier TMS is designed to automate freight, dispatch and accounting through its transportation management software system.

Superior service, on-time delivery, order visibility and flexibility— these are hallmarks of today’s productive and profitable carriers. But achieving this quadfecta of benefits is not done in a vacuum. It is a result of “teching up” with the right TMS platform.

EKA Omni-TMS™ for carriers is a native cloud-based SaaS TMS that provides affordable, quote-to-cash, best-in-class, intuitive, easy-to use functionality to empower small and medium-size carriers with the capabilities and services to grow and perform as well or better than large fleets.

At the point of key decision making, carrier precision asset and revenue management tools offer real-time availability of data and information. In addition, automated work processes that facilitate exception management continue to streamline carrier management work processes.
