UTS Supply Chain Technology

Online tools your whole company will use.

A UTS partnership includes myUTS, a high-end Transportation Management System (TMS).

Standalone TMS solutions cost a lot and require you to do most of the setup and maintenance. With myUTS, though, there are no fees. Plus our team of subject-matter experts manages the system on your behalf.

  • No fees for licensing, setup, customization, or training.
  • UTS experts handle maintenance and updates.
  • Your UTS service team fills in the TMS “weak spots” like disputing invalid charges and managing claims.

COMPARE SHIPPING OPTIONS

We show you the marketplace for LTL shipments and highlight the ranked carrier. Your sales team can use this information to price quotes and plan fulfillment schedules. Your shipping team gets the information it needs to pick the best carrier and service level for each shipment.

Our proprietary Ontime percentage calculates how often each carrier delivers on time. The calculation reflects the carrier’s actual performance over the last 90 days. This gives you a reliable method for predicting the reliability of each option.

RULES-BASED TENDERING PROCESS

For spot market procurement, we can conduct a bid event or award the load to the best-fit carrier that accepts the current market rate.

For contracted (dedicated) services, we can manage your existing resources and/or procure new ones with customized contracts that ensure your requirements are met.

The screen here shows an automated tender event with contracted carriers. The top-ranked carrier declined the load, so it was immediately offered to the second-ranked carrier, who accepted.

BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE DASHBOARDS & REPORTS

The data we store on your behalf belongs to you. It is available in spreadsheets that contain more than 50 fields of information for every shipment, as well as a variety of reports that help with strategic decision making.

We also organize your data into dashboards that communicate your shipment activity in highly visual formats. See in just a glance whether key cost and service metrics are tracking to plan.

ACTIONABLE FEEDBACK

Our TMS gives information you can use to immediately make improvements in your supply chain.

The Opportunity Analysis Report compares actual carrier choices with alternate scenarios including the lowest-cost carrier and the carrier with the highest service ranking.

Another popular tool is our Carrier Utilization Analysis, which shows the impact on cost and service levels resulting from changes in the carriers used to move your freight.

SYSTEM INTEGRATION

System integration is a strategic opportunity for savings. Often integration is seen only as a method of automating communication between companies. But with the right partner, it can be so much more, improving profitability and customer service while reducing interruptions.

UTS makes integration work for you. We have a background of successful integration projects. Make us your hub to real-time data from carriers, load-matching services such as DAT, and specialized resources such as SMC³.
