Top 10 Transport Management Companies - 2019

Digitalization resulting in various technological disruptions has induced a paradigm shift in the transport management space. Entrepreneurs have come a long way from using excel sheets, and making tiring phone-calls, to deploying integrated freight tracking systems. This shift has assisted the enterprises in seamlessly tracking their freight from the beginning to the end of the supply chain. By enabling real-time freight monitoring, and visible inventory tracking, transport management systems (TMS) has left the manufactures quite pleasantly surprised.

Driven by this rising demand, TMS providers, in 2019, are constantly stepping their game up with advanced innovations like smart data management, which leverages the better opportunity of data forecasting for future shipments, yard management, dock clearance, and much more. Seeing from an industrial standpoint, the use of ‘single window’ logistical operation has become another trend of utmost significance this year. Entrepreneurs are leaning more toward a single, integrated platform for freight-related information access, which in turn, has successfully bolstered freight visibility, and mobility, even through rocky terrains. Pairing these integrated platforms alongside with analytics (AI) technology, business entities are deriving data insights to not only improve the transport management but also detect expected hurdles in the due course of executing a safe and guaranteed delivery on time.

Having said that, one of the most exciting trends observed in 2019 is the emergence of blockchain-based solutions, designed for a holistic supply chain management. With blockchain-enabled platforms, data coordination of freight-related document has become a cake-walk. The smart contracts, approvals, and customs clearance, blockchain has notably reduced the transport cost as well as the manual paperwork.
