TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Optimize Operations with UTS as Your Transportation Management System Provider

Better Transportation Management System (TMS) Technology

Our online tools give you a new level of visibility and control over your supply chain management (SCM) costs. People throughout your company can monitor and manage all of your transportation activity using one website. Our tools empower your team by providing access to rates, shipment status information, documentation and data. Everything is kept secure and searchable in one location.

We Verify Every Carrier

We don’t just confirm that every charge is correct.
We confirm that every charge is valid.

Most auditing services omit an important aspect of the auditing responsibility. They do not confirm that the carrier is entitled to payment. We ensure you only pay for the services performed.

UTS audit services confirm both the validity and the accuracy of each charge.

We find exceptions in 22% of the shipments we audit. Billing exceptions include wrong tariffs, wrong discounts, weight & inspections and added accessorials.
