About us / TMC

Global supply chain management services from TMC

TMC, a division of C.H. Robinson, offers Managed TMS®, a unique combination of global transportation management system (TMS) software, logistics process management, and consulting services. Unlike global TMS providers and traditional third party logistic providers (3PLs) that manage outsource transportation functions, TMC blends the benefits of both traditional TMS technology and 3PL outsourcing, works collaboratively with customers to share knowledge and risk, and is backed by C.H. Robinson, one of the world’s largest 3PLs.

Since 1999, TMC has operated as a separate division of C.H. Robinson and has five Global Control Tower® locations in Chicago (HQ), Amsterdam, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, and Wroclaw. TMC pioneered a category of service that combines TMS technology with logistics process management and consulting services and has grown into a global business, managing over 10.4M shipments and $3.1B in freight under management for some of the largest brands in the world.

TMC’s team of dedicated logistics experts operate as an extension of your logistics department, collaborating to drive immediate and sustained savings throughout your logistics networks.

Achieve an unbiased focus on optimizing your logistics strategy—a core value in TMC’s culture. You will gain many benefits from TMC’s association with C.H. Robinson, as well as those made possible because we operate separately and independently on your behalf. We have established processes and controls to prevent information sharing and undue influence with C.H. Robinson’s freight services business. To meet your expectations, TMC is structured as a separate division of C.H. Robinson with intentional, measurable separation between systems, operations personnel, and facilities.
