Magic Quadrant™ for Transportation Management Systems (TMS)
Gartner names e2open a Leader. E2open’s Transportation Management System (TMS) can help companies manage the most complex use cases that are more commonplace today.
Transportation management helps shippers lower costs and improve service
Shippers are always looking for ways to simplify their logistics operations—to improve service and contain costs despite the challenges of changing market conditions. E2open Transportation Management is an all-encompassing logistics management application that automates transportation activities across all modes and regions, driving transformational efficiency and the ability to scale. Purpose-built for companies that plan and execute their own shipments, shipper-specific capabilities cover all the bases – from planning and rating, execution, settlement, analytics, and procurement. Transportation Management delivers operational excellence, unparalleled efficiency, and reduced spend, allowing shippers to control and improve their logistics network.
Freight forwarders easily coordinate customers’ shipments with Transportation Management
Managing shipments for multiple customers across all modes and geographies was complex well before the pandemic. Today, those complexities have increased as geopolitical and supply challenges continue to strain the ability to move goods around the world. The freight forwarding workflows and capabilities in Transportation Management provide a global multimodal solution, handling multiple languages, currencies, and time zones. By automating key processes, e2open helps forwarders reduce the cost and time it takes to handle each shipment, resulting in better customer service and the ability to differentiate your business in a competitive market.
Logistics service providers optimize costs and deliver better customer service through end-to-end logistics management
Logistics service providers (LSPs) must manage sophisticated requirements for multiple clients while controlling costs in a highly competitive market. Effective transportation and warehouse resource utilization is critical to success. Using e2open Transportation Management, LSPs can manage the entire logistics operation from front to back, handling multiple languages, currencies, and time zones. Integrated cross-dock and warehousing modules allow LSPs to manage all multimodal transportation and temporary storage activities for one shipment––and produce an itemized customer invoice.
