And what if you had a partner with a complete range of expertise to improve your transportation process? The opportunities are endless when you join the Transnova Collaborative Transportation Network.7000 Carrier Partners 100+ Years Transportation Management Experience 63 000+ Unique Users R70+ Billion Rand Total Annual Transportation Spend 8 Million Loads 14.6 Million Shipments
The Transnova Transportation Network is one of the largest transportation networks in the industry, creating unmatched opportunities for collaborative reduction or elimination of empty miles with network-wide visibility into available capacity for matching supply and demand.
The Transnova Transportation Network empowers shippers, carriers and other participating members to reduce costs, improve services and gain complete visibility. The platform is unique in that it focuses on managing the entire transport process (as opposed to specific elements) and it does this entirely on a hosted basis (i.e. one global solution that is accessed through the internet avoiding the need for expensive on-site IT and expertise). More importantly, the solution is offered on a ‘pay-as-you-use’ basis, known in the IT industry as SaaS (Software as a Service) – avoiding the need for significant upfront CAPEX investment.

Today’s Transportation Management Systems (TMS) are available on different software platforms, from on premise (installed) to hosted to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The growing preference of industry experts is toward true SaaS, a multi-tenant architecture in which all users operate from a single instance of software. Centralising transportation activities with a SaaS based TMS provides the ability to connect members of your organisation, carriers, customers and trading partners in a collaborative community or network. A true SaaS TMS enables multiple parties to leverage technologies through a common platform. This centrally located software instance is highly secure and offers significant benefits over on-premise software or hosted systems. Understanding all of the benefits of a true SaaS platform is key to making the best TMS decision.
