Vehicle chartering, a major step forward in the world of private group transportation
Vehicle chartering has long been a popular option for corporations, governments, and individual users who need to transport groups of people for various purposes. However, the process of reserving private group transportation can be cumbersome, time-consuming, and often involves a lot of back-and-forth communication between charter operators and customers.
This is where Transportation Management System (TCM) comes in, offering a suite of capabilities to remove friction from the process and make it easier and faster to book private group transportation.
Here are three major benefits for customers of the Transportation Management System (TCM):
- Easy and Quick Booking Process: One of the key features of TCM is real-time availability and tracking. This means that customers can quickly and easily see what vehiclees are available for their desired date and time, and track the progress of their vehicle in real-time once it has been booked. This is especially important for customers who need to transport large groups of people, as it allows them to keep track of everyone's whereabouts and ensure that everyone arrives at their destination safely and on time. Instant booking is also a key feature of TCM, allowing customers to charter a vehicle in just 60 seconds. This is a significant improvement over the traditional process, which can often take days or even weeks to finalize. With instant booking, customers can quickly and easily reserve a vehicle for their group without having to spend hours on the phone or sending emails back and forth with charter operators.
- Cost Savings: Another feature of TCM is dynamic pricing, which allows customers to get the best possible price for their private group transportation needs. Rather than having to negotiate with individual charter operators, TCM offers transparent pricing that is based on market demand and availability. This means that customers can rest assured that they are getting a fair price for their vehicle charter and that they are not being taken advantage of by unscrupulous operators.
- Unmatched Accessibility and Transparency: TCM also aims to offer an unmatched experience of accessibility, accountability, and transparency in the charter vehicle space. This means that customers can expect to have access to a wide range of vehicle options, with varying sizes and amenities, to suit their specific needs. Additionally, TCM is committed to providing the highest level of accountability and transparency, with clear communication channels and real-time tracking of vehicles to ensure that customers are always kept in the loop.
TCM also boasts an advanced ability to optimize the use of the charter company and subcontractor capacities. This means that the platform is capable of sending the right vehicle on the right trip to minimize empty kilometers, leading to more competitive prices, more completed trips, increased traffic, and reduced emissions.
What makes this possible?
A major component of TCM is the Charter Backend (CB), which is the engine behind the platform. CB is a backend system that stores data about vehicles and drivers for the purpose of occasional transportation needs. Based on availability, appropriate vehicle-driver pairs (capacity) are created and forwarded to TCM. At the same time, CB is connected to other backend systems like ERP, CRM, AVL, and others. This means that CB is able to efficiently manage the flow of vehicles and drivers, ensuring that customers always have access to the right vehicle at the right time.
A major step forward
Overall, TCM represents a major step forward in the world of private group transportation. By removing the friction from the process of reserving a vehicle charter, TCM is making it easier and faster for customers to transport groups of people for various purposes. With real-time availability and tracking, dynamic pricing, instant booking, and a commitment to accessibility, accountability, and transparency, TCM is poised to revolutionize the charter vehicle industry and provide a better experience for customers and operators alike.
