Objectives and Key Deliverables
We are a global logistics provider operating in over 30 countries. Our core business is sea, air, rail and road freight, logistics and supply chain management.
We are currently operating an outdated TMS (Transport Management System) platform for all freight operations and are looking for alternative solutions.
We require an expert advisor, with in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience in developing and implementing global Transport Management System(s) for other global players in the freight transport industry.
This person must understand the freight transportation industry but more importantly know the advantages/disadvantages of different solutions available on the market, with an excellent understanding of the IT systems and technology behind the solutions, as well as first-hand experience of project managing a TMS platform installation into a global logistics company.
The project will initially involve a series of expert calls in which we expect to be advised on potential solutions to upgrading our TMS software as well as receiving guidance on a potential roadmap to implementing this upgrade successfully.
The expert calls will consist of a series of 1-2 hour calls, amounting to approximately 8-16 hours in total.
Depending on the outcome of the expert calls, there may be a 2nd phase to this assignment which could involve ongoing consulting support.
The consultant can be based anywhere, but must speak fluent English and be a good communicator to ensure clear understanding of concepts and ideas over the phone.
