MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The transportation and logistics industry continues to face persistent challenges in cost controls, including port and route disruptions, customer returns, and increasing truck driver shortages. In response, vendors have rounded out functionality gaps through strategic acquisitions and partnerships, shifting towards comprehensive supply chain management suites over point solutions to deliver value through increased visibility and operational efficiency.

“Vendors have moved beyond traditional TMS functionalities, shifting focus towards autonomous logistics operations, comprehensive SCM suites, and capabilities that address real-time disruptions and sustainability requirements,” said Research Analyst Charles Brennan. “Organizations using advanced TMS solutions will be better positioned to navigate route and port disruptions, capitalize on cost-saving opportunities, and achieve long-term success in their respective market.”

TMS platforms provide planning and optimization tools to streamline transportation operations. These tools enable businesses to plan routes and loads better, choose the most suitable carriers cost-effectively, and schedule shipments more efficiently. Building upon last year’s TMS trends of increased partnerships, software vendors have improved logistics functionality through acquisitions and partnerships to round out functionality gaps, introduce control tower functionality to their logistics suite, enhance geofencing functionality, and deploy generative AI capabilities.
