Transportation Management System (TMS) enables you to integrate PRECISION with multiple parcel carrier systems. You can use TMS to choose a carrier and service to ship your goods, and you can monitor shipments that are in transit using tracking numbers. For accounting purposes, you can categorize shipments based on location or business function. The TMS Web UI uses a number of terms that have a particular meaning in the context of TMS. As a TMS user, it is important for you to understand the meaning of these terms. This section provides a description of these terms.
