"My team uses TMW operations on a daily basis to capture all business opportunities in one platform. This allows us to measure who’s giving us business, what we were doing with the business we’ve been afforded, whether it’s being secured, whether we lost it on price, or whether we secured it but couldn’t find a truck. It allows us to work exclusively in one tool without having to jump between different systems."
