Covid-19 and the E-Commerce Surge Drive the Transportation Management Systems Market

New ARC Advisory Group research on the Transportation Management Systems (TMS) market finds that the Covid-19 pandemic, and the resulting surge in e-commerce and new fulfillment models, were beneficial for the industry. The transportation management systems market, when compared to other software markets, grew in 2020. In the end, this is not overly surprising, given that even during the great lockdown, the TMS market was more insulated than other markets and felt the impact to a lesser extent. Part of this is the nature of TMS and the industries it serves, such as CPG and food & beverage in particular. The economic recovery in the second half of the year has the TMS market poised for continued growth.

TThe COVID-19 pandemic pushed e-commerce to levels that would not have been believed in early 2020. And this is a trend that will continue to grow. While this is putting added strain on shippers and carriers to fulfill customer orders and meet expectations, it is a boon to the Transportation Management Systems market as retail, CPG, and food & beverage companies in particular look to meet growing demand," according to Chris Cunnane Research Director, Supply Chain Management and key author of ARC's Transportation Management Systems Market Research Report.
