3T Logistics and Technology Group, a leading UK-based transport management technology company, has been recognised in the March 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems (TMS) report for the fifth consecutive year, following detailed research based on expert analysis by Gartner. 3T is one of just fifteen companies included in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report.
The globally respected report published in March 2022 focused on “multimodal, shipper and non-asset-based 3PL transportation management, in which users support a variety of shipping modes, including over-the-road (truck) for hire, fleet, parcel, rail, intermodal, air and ocean”.
The annual report, designed to help supply chain leaders navigate an ever-changing and increasingly complex TMS vendor landscape, defines the TMS multimodal market as a “category of software that deals with the planning and execution of the physical movement of goods across the supply chain”. This year’s report evaluated TMS vendors against “ability to execute” criteria (which includes, but is not limited to, product/service, customer experience, overall viability) and “completeness of vision” criteria (which also includes, but is not limited to, business model, innovation and strategy).
In the report, 3T has been commended for its “very scalable solution that can cater to all levels of complexity”, as well as “a number of very innovative projects on its roadmap … like augmented reality, voice recognition and AI”.
Steve Twydell, Founder and CEO of 3T Logistics and Technology Group, comments, “We are extremely proud to be recognised in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems, especially this being the fifth year running. We feel that this is such a prestigious reference within the transport management industry and highlights 3T’s culture of innovation, hard work and challenging convention.”
3T’s digital transport platform EVENT delivers significant transport cost reductions and service improvement through automation, optimisation and data insights, enabling rapid supply chain digital transformation.
