3Gtms TMS System inclusion marks the first time 3Gtms named to Gartner Magic Quadrant
Shelton, Conn. March 21, 2018 – 3Gtms, Inc., a global provider of Tier 1 transportation management software, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Niche Players quadrant of the report, Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems*. This is the first time 3Gtms has been positioned within the Magic Quadrant.
According to the report, the research “focuses on holistic multimodal domestic TMSs for use by shippers (such as manufacturers, retailers, distributors and wholesalers) or non-asset-based, third-party logistics (3PL) organizations.” Key criteria for the 2018 Magic Quadrant included: The breadth of the TMS; depth of the TMS; usability and adaptability; global go-to market strategy and offering; partner ecosystem; vision, thought leadership, roadmap, and track record; and a compelling SCE convergence strategy.
“We consider our positioning in the Niche Players quadrant of this Magic Quadrant by Gartner a confirmation of our mission to deliver a TMS unlike anything else on the market in terms of design and flexibility,” said Mitch Weseley, CEO of 3Gtms. “We feel that our technology continues to wow our customers by enabling them to optimize their transportation with more power and efficiency than ever before, such as our industry-first offering of Continuous Pool Optimization.”
3Gtms customers have offered their own praise and note that the expertise behind the technology is just as critical to a project’s success. Thomas B. Crowley, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Crowley, notes, “We chose to partner with 3Gtms on one of the largest and most complex TMS projects in the world serving the U.S. Department of Defense. 3Gtms offered the best system for expanding and optimizing our transportation offerings and their expertise is second to none. In fact, it’s been the best IT effort we’ve ever experienced.”
According to Gartner, “The evolutionary expansion of the depth and breadth of TMS offerings improves the value proposition for TMSs. Enhancements in freight procurement, analytics, and support for more modes of transportation (for example, intermodal, parcel, rail, air and private/dedicated fleets); visibility/event management (track and trace); and performance management have added to the value of TMSs beyond the traditional boundaries of better load planning and electronic freight tendering.”
