Gartner Magic Quadrants position vendors within a particular market segment based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute on that vision.
According to Gartner, “TMS continues to be seen as the key enabler that will help freight organizations to reduce total miles and empty miles, enable better utilization of freight capacities, minimize unnecessary moves, combine loads to use more-economical modes of transportation, and ensure that the least-cost modes and carriers are routinely chosen by users.”
Built on modern, flexible, Internet based architecture, Oracle Transportation Management delivers robust, global transportation planning and execution capabilities that help shippers and third party logistics providers lower transportation costs, enhance customer service and improve asset utilization.
“Shippers and third party logistics providers are looking for a single platform that enables them to transform their value chain to deliver fulfillment excellence,” said Derek Gittoes, vice president, logistics product strategy, Oracle. “We believe that our position in this report is a testament to our commitment to delivering industry-leading transportation planning and execution capabilities that help customers achieve the benefits of an information driven value chain.”
