What new trends and opportunities will emerge for both shippers and software vendors this year in the transportation management systems (TMS) market? We gathered three of our top supply chain software analysts to see where they think the market is headed.
As the world’s transportation networks and supply chains become increasingly intertwined and complex, the systems that support them are improving and advancing at the same break-neck speed.
Last year, for example, we saw transportation management systems (TMS) make significant strides on the “end-to-end supply chain visibility” front—a Holy Grail that many shippers have been striving for since TMS was first introduced years ago. Software vendors across the board have been integrating more transportation optimization capabilities into their solutions, making it easier for shippers to streamline their supply chains while also making them more cost- and time-efficient.
