TMS Features of Constellation

The feature set of Constellation TMS is exactly what you need to streamline your transportation processes. No wasted bells and whistles for you to pay for needlessly, just those that add the most value to your operations.

Constellation TMS

Rating Engine

Constellation TMS is powered by TranzAct’s powerful rating and routing engine called StarRate. StarRate holds your truckload, LTL or intermodal rates. StarRate is extremely flexible because carriers have different rate structures. StarRate has the ability the rate your shipments whether you use, per mile, 5 digit zip, 3 digit zip, city to city, state to state, and many more.

Quote Management

Even if you don’t have contracted rates, or you are seeking a quote from the spot market quotes, Constellation TMS can help you request, retrieve and manage the process. Save yourself from making countless calls and sending multiple e-mails. Constellation gives you visibility to all your contracted rates and spot market quotes in one view to help you make more informed decisions. Set your parameters and let Constellation do the work for you.

Custom Automation

Automation is a large part of what makes any TMS effective. But in many systems, you are locked into a single set of automated features. In larger systems, if you need additional functionality you have to wait six months for an official release. In smaller operations, it is not even possible to do what you need. Part of what makes Constellation a great solution is our ability to quickly build in the functionality you need. Give us your special requirements and our team can create a way to make it happen, so you can focus on more value-added tasks.

Electronic Tendering

Are you ready to be done with making repetitive phone calls, keeping track of e-mails, and typing all of your information over and over into carrier websites? Once your load is in Constellation TMS, simply click the tendering button and an electronic dispatch is sent to the carriers. With this digital file the carrier receives more detailed information that is fast and accurate, and less time consuming.

Shipment Status Updates

Constellation TMS gets status updates from the carriers via EDI, API and through our carrier portal, so you always know the location of your freight. Stop searching for your shipments. Find every carrier’s status–easily–in one place.

Document Generation

Constellation TMS can generate a BOL and a pallet label for you, so you won’t have to go outside the system or buy additional software to create them. Constellation can also generate a Commercial Invoice for your Canadian shipments.

Truckload, LTL, Intermodal

Constellation is a multi-modal Transportation Management System. Whether your loads are truckload, LTL, or intermodal, Constellation has the power and technology to rate, tender, and track your shipments. The system also excels at handling your special equipment needs, such as flatbed, reefers, and tankers.
