Logistics Technology Provider Positioned Among Challengers for its Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Dallas, TX – Transplace, a leading provider of transportation management services and logistics technology solutions, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Challenger on the 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems.”

“In order to meet evolving consumer demands and expectations in an increasingly competitive market, shippers need a fast, efficient supply chain – so, many organizations are turning to enhanced transportation management technology to achieve greater velocity, visibility, predictability and control,” said Mike Dieter, CTO, Transplace. “We believe our positioning in the Challengers quadrant by Gartner validates Transplace’s ongoing commitment to provide exceptional transportation management solutions that help shippers improve financial performance, drive operational excellence and have peace of mind.”

Offering a complete suite of transportation management, strategic capacity, and cross-border and global trade services, Transplace’s customizable logistics solutions and best-in-class technology gives organizations – from Fortune 500 companies to small-to-medium sized businesses – greater control of their transportation operations, as well as enhanced visibility of shipments and overall supply chain performance.

Dieter added, “Much of Transplace’s technology innovation and development comes as a result of direct feedback from the shipping community. Additionally, as users of our own technology, we understand the pain points and what functionality its users need, and are continuously updating and enhancing the technology to meet the growing demands of today’s dynamic supply chain landscape.”

Transplace CEO Frank McGuigan stated, “While a TMS can have a significant impact on a shipper’s supply chain operations, it’s not automatically going to ‘fix’ their network. They need to have the right strategy and processes behind it. True transportation optimization is more than moving freight at the lowest cost or finding a short-term performance boost; it’s about continuous improvement delivered through smart, data-driven planning and efficient execution at both the lane and network level.”
