Constellation TMS

Multi-modal transportation management & services

About Constellation TMS

Constellation TMS is a multi-modal transportation management solution that provides the tools and services to help shippers streamline their transportation processes and make better business decisions to reduce spend. The platform provides organizations with the technology to rate, tender, and track shipments, along with key features including a rating engine, quote management, electronic tendering, shipment status updates, and document generation.

StarRate is Constellation TMS’s flexible rating and routing engine which is powered by TranzAct. StarRate holds all truckload, LTL or intermodal rates, and has the ability to rate all shipments whether per mile, city to city, state to state, 3 digit zip, 5 digit zip, and more. With Constellation TMS, organizations can request, retrieve and manage quotes, and get visibility on all contracted rates and view market quotes in a single view, as well as set parameters.

Users can get shipment status updates from carriers via EDI, API and through the carrier portal, and find every carrier’s status in one place. Constellation TMS comes with tools for document generation, enabling users to generate a BOL (bill of lading) and pallet labels, as well as commercial invoices for Canadian shipments. The multi-modal system can also handle special equipment needs such as reefers, tankers and flatbeds.

Transportation management services provided by Constellation TMS include a single portal which allows vendors to schedule shipments with the organization’s rates and carriers. Once a shipment is booked, users will receive an ASN (advanced shipping notice) with all the necessary information. Carriers can also schedule their own appointments online, and the entire team gets visibility to the schedule. Additional features include manual load merging, load optimization, reporting & compliance, freight audit & payment, and self invoicing.

    We have had an amazing experience with the Constellation TMS

    Reviewed on 2018/06/29

    Pros

    The customer service reps care about our business and they are an extension of our team, the software is easy to use, it helps our company control costs, and the developers are flexible and can customize the software to meet our needs.

    Cons

    We have used other TMS programs, and there isn't any need we have that Constellation doesn't currently handle. No software is perfect but this has met our needs in every way.
