According to the Gartner research, “the challenges in transportation around scarce capacity, higher costs and more demanding customers are increasing the need for technology.”
TMC’s global transportation management system (TMS), Navisphere, connects shippers to their suppliers, carriers and customers through a single instance technology platform that serves all modes and regions. Additionally, TMC’s Managed TMS offering combines Navisphere technology with managed services delivered by teams of experienced logistics experts around the world. Shippers gain real-time visibility and predictive analytics to find actionable insights, proactively mitigate disruptions, and improve service to their customers.
“We consider our positioning in the Challengers quadrant by Gartner as a confirmation of our focus on providing best-in-class global TMS technology paired with our supply chain experts who act as an extension of customers’ teams,” said Jordan Kass, president of Managed Services, which includes leadership over TMC and Freightview. Freightview is a TMS focused on small to mid-sized shippers.
“Our experience working with some of the largest, most sophisticated shippers in the world enables us to continue to innovate and invest in the platform, while pursuing our mission to connect, automate, and optimize the world’s supply chains. We’re able to leverage our experience and scale to deliver an information advantage to customers that results in better outcomes,” said Kass. “Additionally, we maximize value to customers through our talented team who translate complex needs into solutions that save money and improve performance.”

With more than 73,000 carriers onboarded globally within its TMS, across all modes, TMC provides one of the largest carrier networks of any TMS provider.
