3T Logistics are celebrating retaining the company’s inclusion in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems . The company is Europe’s largest independent 4PL provider.
The achievement is particularly notable for the fact that of the 13 companies from across the world included in the Quadrant this year, 3T is one of only two companies based in the UK. 3T’s headquarters are located in Leicestershire.
Published on 27th March 2019, the report focuses on multimodal domestic transportation management systems (TMSs) that are a subset of the global TMS market. The report evaluates TMS vendors across 15 weighted criteria, recognising them based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.
The Event TMS – offering intuitive usability
For the second consecutive year, 3T Logistics has been recognised in the magic quadrant, with the company’s Event platform included in the report. As a modular, cloud-based TMS that offers a mix of SaaS to managed solutions, intuitive usability is an important feature of the Event system. The Connect module allows direct communication with carriers to manage orders and upload documents such as PODs and invoices. The system also provides routing and scheduling capabilities for companies with their own fleets.
3T’s experience as 4PL and its collaboration with the universities of Nottingham and Warwick, was also recognised, as was the value of the audit consultancy that the company offers prior to TMS implementation to define potential benefits and calculate ROI.
An industry leading 4PL provider
3T’s managing director Tim Fawkes commented: “We are extremely proud to be again positioned in the Gartner Magic Quadrant which we feel is such a prestigious document in the transport management industry. To us, our positioning confirms us as one of the top TMS providers and rewards our innovative and unique approach to transport management. We believe that Gartner’s repeat recognition of 3T Logistics is a result of our continual enhancements to existing systems and new innovations.”
