New Panama Canal Options: Running the Numbers with a TMS
DECEMBER 8, 2016
When the expanded Panama Canal opened this June, a new set of routes became available for shippers and beneficial cargo owners (BCOs). Cargo can enter the country via East coast or West coast ports depending on variables such as the type of product being shipped. Modern TMS solutions are designed to help shippers make such trade-offs, with analytics platforms that take data from multiple sources and present the shipper with a single access point for calculating total landed cost.
