About Alpega TMS

Alpega is a cloud-based transportation management solution addressing the needs of shippers from businesses of all sizes and logistics complexity. These SaaS solutions optimize and streamline processes across the end-to-end transportation cycle for over 200 customers across 80 countries, managing over 30 million transport orders each year.

Alpega solutions are modular, and can be implemented as stand-alone, integrated with an existing logistics IT landscape, and can scale as the business requires. Alpega enables collaboration with all trading partners throughout the supply chain. By connecting shippers with carriers, customers and suppliers, improved visibility is achieved as well as shared, real-time information for improved decision-making, compliance and transparency.

Alpega solutions offer the opportunity to reduce overall freight spend and carbon footprint through improved freight procurement, planning and optimization, shipment execution, freight settlement, and analytics and reporting. Additional solutions such as live vehicle tracking, dock appointment scheduling, reusable/returnable packaging management, and mobile solutions further improve end-to-end visibility, the efficiency of transportation workflows, and the automation of manual tasks via the use of logistics IT.


Key benefits of Alpega TMS

• Automatically assign orders to the appropriate carrier through a built-in dynamic carrier allocation feature which assesses a range of pre-determined decision criteria.

• Recognize actual transportation spend vs budget, analyze historical data for new cost-saving opportunities or corrective measures, and gain control over the financial performance of transportation operations.

• Book pickup/delivery appointments (for docks, transfer terminals or silos) online 24/7 for shippers and receivers to automate the scheduling process – saving time-consuming administrative work.

We use just the Call-Off product now, but looking at the TMS product also.
Excellent Support in the U.S.

Pros

ease of use for shippers and carriers
information organized in a logical format
great visibility
filter function helps manage shipments

Cons

system goes down and that creates major issues, all visibility is lost, don't know what tenders went through and what didn't.
Every day there are Error messages meaning a problem with someone's call-off, I receive all errors (Roquette sites all over the world). Would be great if we could see only U.S. call-off errors.

Alpega(Transwide) has given me a good experience. It is user friendly and allows my company to conduct business in the manner it needs to, to best serve our customers. The customer service team in Pittsburgh is always willing to help, and make it a priority to help find ways to make the system work more for our needs. CSR is always on top of finding solutions, and if she doesn't know the answer she makes sure to search one and get back to us.

Pros

This software makes it easier for my department to conduct business. It gives a line of communication between our customer service department and truckers in order to ensure the customer is getting their shipments. It is eye appealing and user friendly.

Cons

The notifications are sometimes delayed, on when they are going to have outages.

We were the first U.S. company to start using Transwide. We utilize the tendering product to get our orders to truckload carriers. It saves us a lot of time and errors in the tendering process. Our carriers like it a lot with the 24/7/365 system availability.

Pros

Simplicity of use and clear organized transport order information for the users.
Login is fast, easy to add users, TW Support is very reactive and helpful for both Shipper and Carriers. Don't have to keep changing password like a lot of systems.
System updates are always done on weekends.

Cons

Screen changes are a bit slow (about 15-30 seconds per screen).
Scheduled down time is always planned for best time in Europe so is always during U.S. business hours.

Response from Alpega

Thanks for the great review and feedback. WE appreciate our lengthy relationship with Roquette. You never forget your "first" ;-)
