Can TMS Solutions Become Cool Again?
At one point, getting a TMS was an aspirational state for shippers, one that enabled them to transition a spreadsheet- and email-based approach to tendering loads and tracking freight milestones to a system-based approach. But somewhere over the last VC funding-fueled decade, the TMS lost its glow amid a bunch of new shiny objects. It became a tool of necessity, not luxury or differentiation. As the freight environment settles back into its more normalized patterns post-pandemic, the question now is whether the market still sees TMS solutions as crucial as they once did. Adding complexity to that question is that many companies trying to redefine how freight is managed digitally are essentially building transportation management systems, only ones that sync with more modern, browser-based approaches to enterprise software. This session will explore the state of play in the world of TMS with a trio of experts.
