DUBLIN, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Transportation Management Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
A transportation management system (TMS) is mainly used to plan freight movements. TMS helps customers plan and execute transportation across their supply chain. It offers a number of important tools, such as strategic planning and optimization, freight consolidation, and freight audit and payment, which helps to maximize the efficiency and reduce freight costs associated with product shipments. The Global Transportation Management market can be divided into three segments: Planning and Execution Solutions, Fleet Management Solutions, and Niche Solutions, which covers only a part of the entire TMS process. TMS helps in improving communication between shippers and carriers, enabling them to share information in real time.
The analysts forecast the Global Transportation Management market to grow at a CAGR of 6.67 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The Global Transportation Management market is characterized by intense competition, consolidation, rapid technological enhancements, frequent product innovations, and changes in customer requirements. This market is experiencing a significant shift from on-premises software solutions to cloud solutions.
The report, the Global Transportation Management Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the APAC and EMEA regions; it also covers the Global Transportation Management market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One major trend anticipated in the market is the increase in cloud-based on-demand models which makes the vendor the IT equivalent of a 3PL provider.
According to the report, the growing demand for SaaS-based TMS solutions is one of the major drivers of the Global Transportation Management market. TMS vendors have started providing SaaS models, where an annual subscription fee has to be paid instead of the huge upfront license fees paid in the on-premises model.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges that the market faces is the high cost of deployment, preventing enterprises from adopting TMS software. Also, the TMS software has to be regularly upgraded to incorporate recent advances, increasing the cost of the software.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
