Introduction
Transportation and distribution can be referred to as moving of products from
manufacturing plants to warehousing and in between facilities to distributors. They
represent more than half of the total logistics costs. A transportation management
system (TMS) is a subpart of supply chain management which concerns about
transportation operations. It can be a part of the enterprise resource planning system.
Distribution Management refers to supervising the movement of goods from
suppliers or manufacturers to the point of sale ( Vieira, Fransoo & Carvalho, 2015).

management viz. incoterms selection consideration, carrier relationship management
