TANK & CONTAINER MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Our History

Bourque Logistics is the premier rail logistics provider in North America serving over 100 large, industrial shippers. Due to numerous client requests for international intermodal management services, Tank and Container Management Systems (TCMS) was created. The focus of this venture is on international ISO tank, container, bulk shipping bags, and cylinder logistics.

Leveraging Bourque Logistics’ knowledge in industrial shipping, automation, and EDI capabilities, TCMS streamlines tank and container logistics and provides enhanced services to shippers, carriers, and depots around the world.

Our Goal

The goal of TCMS is to streamline and optimize our customer’s supply chains. TCMS features advanced software modules to track intermodal asset movements and handle the necessary logistics processes surrounding your fleet.

Our team works with you to fully understand your business process and target goals to optimize logistics flow and asset utilization. Based on our reporting and dashboard screens, we constantly inform and advise on the most effective logistic strategies.

 

Intermodal Transport
Intermodal transport, by definition, involves multiple parties, which may or may not be connected or communicate efficiently with one another. Data which is electronically exchanged between these different supply chain participants can become disjointed and confused, causing potential bottle necks, or misinformation, in the shipment of your assets. The TCMS platform supports multiple points of data integration with any party transmitting information about your fleet, in order to provide a transparent and up-to-date picture of your fleet.
ERP Integration

 

We are experienced in and capable of integrating with our customer’s ERP interfaces. Integrations can take place for asset movements, as well as freight rating and costing integration.

Data Imports

 

Our team is well versed in analyzing various data import files, and creating standard processes in order to populate relevant fleet information. We interface with various depots and facilities involved in your supply chain to standardize a data communication file.

EDI Integration

 

We have processes setup to import standard EDI files relating to Truck, Rail and Vessel movements.

We are based in The Woodlands, TX. We reside in the same building as our partner company Bourque Logistics. This shared workspace allows us to collaborate and leverage the resources and knowledge of Bourque experts who have been an industry leader for domestic rail movements for the past 30 years. The team at Bourque and TCMS offers you more than 100 years of knowledge in the industrial transportation and maintenance arena.

In addition to The Woodlands main office, TCMS has acquired office space and hired personnel in Bucharest, Romania and Singapore to provide support on a global scale. Having these locations and teams allows us to better assist our customers on an international level.
