About Us

TMC is a division of C.H. Robinson, one of the world’s largest third party logistics (3PL) providers. What started in 1999, today has grown to $6.7B in freight under management, handling 21.6M shipments across 170 countries, and including many modes of transportation.

We provide shippers with technology solutions and consulting services, helping them optimize their networks, while also allowing them to maintain control over their supplier and carrier relationships. We manage customers around the world through five global Control Tower® locations, including our Chicago, United States, headquarters, as well as in Amsterdam, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, and Wroclaw.


Why did we create Managed TMS®? As technology changed in the late 1990s, companies attempted to understand the new impact to management of their supply chains. At that time, shippers had two choices—buy a TMS and insource, or use a 3PL and outsource all logistical needs. These two options created a gap in the marketplace for shippers who wanted to maximize the value of new technology, but maintain the control of their carrier relationships. We saw the gap as an opportunity to create a new category, combining the benefits of each option—and so TMC, along with our innovative Managed TMS service, was born.


We believe in our people and the solutions we deliver. Our teams are extensions of our customers’ teams—working to improve supply chains around the world through our Managed TMS approach. We combine best in class, global TMS technology with logistics experts who continually improve the way our customers do business. If you feel purpose in solving problems and driving results, we want to hear from you.


Our people understand your business and continually improve your supply chain. We are an extension of your team, and our goal is to provide you with increased visibility and connectivity from our global TMS, analysis and improvements of your processes, and thought leadership as challenges or insights arise. We identify savings opportunities, eliminate waste and redundancies, improve carrier relationships, and work with you to set KPIs and achievable goals. Meet the leadership team dedicated to your success.


Our values define our culture and the customers we want to work with. We believe in a high sense of responsibility and an involved community commitment. Practicing these ideals allows us to create strong customer relationships based on positive, achievable expectations and longevity. When we work for you, we work with you—not only to deliver responsible solutions, but also to define the next best success for your business.
