A transportation management system (TMS) is a subset of supply chain management and is centered mainly on transportation and logistics. The increasing use of cloud computing technologies for managing supply chain activities is one of the major trends prevailing in the transportation management systems market. Cloud-based deployments generally need less customization and configuration.
These two factors are driving down lifecycle costs, making web-based applications more attractive and appealing to shippers. Retailers across the globe have realized the importance of technology for achieving real-time visibility of operations to track products as they leave manufacturing facility and move through the supply chain. Thus, retailers are gradually moving away from platform-based solutions and are switching to cloud-based technologies. Cloud technologies enable retailers to process huge customer data faster, better match customer demand with a sales season, and offer personalized solutions. Thus, cloud technologies enable mass customization, which is of growing interest to both manufacturers and retailers.

Transportation and Logistics Segment to Register Higher Demand Rate
The integration of automation and functions such as real-time market monitoring, coupled with shippers’ desire to ensure supply chain optimization and visibility, has expanded the application base for transportation management systems. The electrical and electronics, industrial, food and beverage, transportation and logistics, and retail sectors have emerged as the prime application areas of transportation management systems across the world.
Among these, the transportation and logistics segment is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast, majorly on account of demand from third-party logistics providers, with road transportation service providers being the largest end-users of TMS solutions. In 2016, the dominant 67.5% of the global market, the transportation and logistics segment emerged dominant. Over the forecast period from 2017 to 2025, the emerging end-use verticals such as food and beverage, retail, and electronics and electrical are expected to witness the fastest growth, fueling market’s momentum. The increasing demand for supply chain optimization and visibility is expected to drive the adoption of TMS across these verticals.
Transportation management system vendors in North America are collaborating with RFID technology providers to develop advanced, integrated solutions and, in turn ensure better returns on R&D investments. These factors are expected to seal North America’s dominance in the global transportation management system market through the forecast period.
