Proven ROI Drives Transportation Management Systems Market Growth

A transportation management system (TMS) helps companies move freight from origin to destination efficiently, reliably, and cost effectively.  Today’s more capable TMS solutions offer a strong ROI.  Primarily, a TMS can save companies money by lowering their freight spend.  ARC’s survey-based research found that respondents indicated freight savings of approximately 8 percent with the use of a TMS application.  Of these savings, nearly 60 percent of users indicated that less than 10 percent of the net savings were absorbed by the TMS.  These freight savings can be attributed to network design, load consolidation, multi-stop route optimization improved data for procurement, and freight audit.

However, TMS suppliers do face competition.  Transportation execution solutions, which focus on one mode and lack optimization capabilities, may be suitable for shippers that don’t have complex requirements.  Logistics Service Providers (LSPs) provide managed transportation services to the market; basically, they use their own TMS solution to plan and execute loads on behalf of their clients.

The most important trend in the market is the transition to software as a service (SaaS).  This is impacting the market in a number of ways.
