About

We know grocery

CAMS Software provides innovative transportation solutions designed specifically to meet the distinct and demanding requirements of large-scale grocery distribution. Since 1998, we have deployed to over 115 major grocery distribution centers all across North America.

Grocery transportation typically involves short-range distribution of grocery and perishable product to and from the same locations over and over. Oftentimes this is done using a large private fleet. Most Transportation Management Systems (TMSs) are designed primarily for shipping with the lowest cost of transportation, not necessarily managing your own private fleet and all the assoicated challenges.

CAMS Software designs solutions to handle the numerous challenges unique to grocery transportation such as driver bids, activity based compensation, on-time delivery performance and tracking, backhaul and salvage optimization, reusable asset tracking, driver efficiency tracking and so on. For these reasons, CAMS Software is the TMS solution provider of choice for more major grocery companies than any other TMS.

 

The CAMS philosophy

Our flagship product, Prospero, is named after the main character from Shakespeare's The Tempest. In his final speech, the sorceror Prospero seeks redemption not from his peers on the stage, but from the audience itself:

Gentle breath of yours my sails
Must fill, or else my project fails,

Given that the play was Shakespeare's last major work, many scholars agree these words were Shakespeare's own, explaining to his listeners that his life's work is only given meaning through the enjoyment produced in his patrons.

In the same manner, CAMS Software is tied to its clients by the threads of their successes. If we take on your business, we only succeed if you do; your prospering is our prospering.
