Microsoft selects TMC as global transportation management system provider


Microsoft has chosen TMC, a division of C.H. Robinson, as its global transportation management platform. TMC was selected because of its global capabilities and experience in managing logistics for large multi-national shippers. After recently completing Microsoft’s implementation across every region, TMC is now live with managing the company’s global network.

“As a pioneer in the technology industry, Microsoft understands and recognizes innovation, connectivity, and best in class capabilities. Their decision to utilize our single global platform capable of managing logistics in all regions and all modes speaks volumes of TMC’s ability to drive growth, differentiation, and solutions for customers,” said Jordan Kass, President of TMC.

Microsoft is leveraging TMC’s cloud-based, global technology paired with managed services that include process management and supply chain consulting. Every Control Tower location within TMC’s global network plays role in managing Microsoft’s supply chain across more than 100 countries and all modes of transportation.

Brent Nagy, Vice President Enterprise Strategy, said of the project, “It was a multi-year project that required a high-level of synchronization among our teams at every global Control Tower location.”

“At the forefront of our global supply chain execution is our capability to scale and be agile in a dynamic landscape.
