Mission Statement

TMS Digital’s mission is to make truckers’ lives easier and accelerate the transportation industry with innovative, reliable, and secure technology solutions. Our goal is to help your business grow with passion, responsibility, and integrity.


Over the last 35 years, TMS has gone through a number of transformations to become the company we are today.  It was the late 80’s Elkville, Illinois, when founder Bob Berner was writing his first program in dBase. He used his family’s farming background to focus on a crop duster management program. People started to take an interest, and Berner hired a few programmers and technicians. TMS was born. The company’s first office was a remodeled barn behind Berner’s house.

We lost Bob to a plane accident in the late ’90s. That is when our lead programmer, Shawn O’Neil, took over the company, and we became Custom Software Solutions, Inc. The software, by then, had grown to multiple modules along with the original dispatch program. We had an Equipment Maintenance, Ticket Freight Billing, Mileage and Fuel Tax, EDI interface, and Driver Log program.

In 2020 Richard Luna and his team at Protected Harbor saw the potential in the team and the product and jumped on the opportunity to bring TMS into the Protected Harbor family.  Protected Harbor intertwined its technology and expertise with TMS Digital to deliver the best of both worlds. TMS Digital provided ultimate solutions for the trucking industry, and Protected Harbor made it even better by adding reliability, durability, unmatched uptime, safety, and remote support to the equation.
