Transportation System in Grocery For over twenty years, our Prospero products have been providing exceptional service to our valued clients at more distribution centers across North America than any other transportation system.

Prospero Products

Prospero is the first fully integrated Transportation Suite specifically designed and built to satisfy the unique and demanding requirements of the grocery industry. From managing product inbound to your distribution centers through to store order capture and route optimization, through dispatch and execution, all the way through to actual delivery on our fully integrated ELD, and closing the loop with driver payroll and enterprise reporting. Prospero’s suite of products handles all of your transportation planning and execution requirements seamlessly and efficiently.

Prospero Outbound is the industry’s leading routing, driver dispatch and payroll system. Used in more major grocery distribution centers than any other package.

The clever integration of several transportation functions into one package enables you to significantly lower transportation costs while providing the visibility you need to improve service levels at the same time.

Dynamic Route Optimization

Multi-site Driver Dispatch Board

Hourly & Activity Based Driver Payroll

Manage your inbound traffic the right way with Prospero Inbound. Now you can consolidate inbound orders intelligently taking into account distance, timing, capacity, temperature and equipment type.

Optimized LTL PO consolidation

Know in advance which POs can be handled by the private fleet vs. tendered to carriers

Every ELD tracks driver hours of service and most can report on fuel consumption data for IFTA reporting. However, with Prospero Mobi, you can tap into the true potential of a trip-based ELD.

Mobi is not just another mindless data recorder. With its tight integration with Prospero Outbound, your dispatchers enjoy a simple, single application experience. Mobi provides stop, break and driver activity information in real time. You can even add or remove stops while a trip is in progress without ever leaving our Outbound TMS.

What Our Clients Are Saying

CAMS has been a valued partner in our supply chain execution for more than 15 years. Their team has been a valuable resource for helping us execute on our transportation KPI’s and ensuring consistent efficient delivery operations to our stores.

Dave Schmitz

Director of Transportation, Price Chopper Supermarkets

We initially selected CAMS Software to centralize our dispatch operations across ten distribution centers. It was the smoothest rollout we've ever had and provided a strong ROI. We have since centralized our route optimation across all sites with Prospero Outbound.

Richard Kearns

EVP, Distribution Associated Wholesale Grocers

I would like to thank you and your fine organization for the support you have provided from start-up to interfacing with various other systems. No problem was ever too small or too difficult. I have never received better support from any other partnered vendor. Your response time has been tremendous. I realize we do things differently than any of your other users, but you have always made things work the way we do. Thank you so much!

We Know Grocery

CAMS Software provides innovative transportation solutions designed specifically to meet the demanding requirements of large-scale grocery distribution.

We have been providing these solutions since 1999 and have deployed to over 150 major grocery distribution centers all across North America.

Grocery transportation typically involves short radius distribution of temperature controlled product to and from the same locations over and over. Turnaround from order cut-off to delivery is much less than 24 hours and you're expected to hit tight delivery windows. There is no time to tender these loads out like a typical TMS would so they're delivered with private or dedicated fleets. Dispatching with these fleets often involve complying with custom and complex collective bargaining agreements, seniority rules, and engineered labor standards. Our transportation solutions are specifically designed to handle the associated challenges of working with private and dedicated fleet operations.

Our Philosophy

Prospero is named after the main character from Shakespeare’s The Tempest. In this, the last of Shakespeare’s major works, in the final soliloquy and epilogue, he makes the point that his life’s work is only given meaning through the enjoyment produced in his patrons.

“As you from crimes would pardon’d be, Let your indulgence set me free.”

Only from the applause can Prospero avoid failure and be set free. 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.
