Overview

Proven ROI Drives Market Growth
A transportation management system (TMS) helps companies move freight from origin to destination efficiently, reliably, and cost effectively.  ARC segments the TMS market into two basic solution types:  planning & execution solutions are systems for freight moves involving carriers; and fleet management solutions are systems for freight moves involving transportation assets owned by the company.

Today’s more capable TMS solutions offer a strong ROI.  Primarily, a TMS can save companies money by lowering their freight spend.  In a TMS survey from 2011, ARC found that respondents indicated freight savings of approximately 6 percent with the use of a TMS application.  Of these savings, nearly 60 percent of users indicated that less than 25 percent of the net savings were absorbed by the TMS.  These freight savings can be attributed to lower cost mode selections, better routing, and better procurement negotiations.

The barriers to entry are lower than ever.  The freight spend required to invest in a TMS solution is lower than ever.  Historically, if a company did not have over $20 million in freight spend, purchasing a TMS was out of the question.  The emergence of SaaS solutions, and less sophisticated on-premise applications, has reduced that number significantly. Now, essentially companies of all sizes can afford a TMS.

Strategic Issues
The TMS market is one of the faster growing and most profitable of the various service lines offered by logistics service providers. Other strategic questions answered include:

  • How can suppliers increase their value proposition?
  • What other factors are driving growth in the TMS market?
  • What factors are inhibiting growth in the TMS market?
  • How are LSPs impacting the TMS market?
