Key findings by Gartner®

According to the research, Europe region remains the second largest TMS software market after North America, with an approximate 23.7% share of the global TMS market. Additional findings from the report include:

  • Gartner estimates the global spend of the TMS software market to be $2.2 billion through 2026, up from $1.4 billion in 2021
  • The European TMS market is forecast to grow at a five-year CAGR of 5.3%, with a forecast spend through 2026 of $485 million, up from $392 million in 2021
  • Compared to previous years, 2022 was not a very active year with regard to vendor acquisition and investment movements in the European TMS market

Gartner mentions, “Improving business process outcomes, managing cost and creating internal/operational efficiencies remain at the top of organizations priorities when acquiring a TMS. Labor shortages, increased digitization of operations, and sustainability were other drivers for adoption in 2021.”

Lars Pedersen, nShift CEO, said, “Transport Management Systems do more than facilitate logistics. They’re mission-critical to businesses, and it’s no surprise that our customers see us as a strategic growth enabler that drives value. We give our customers access to the world's largest carrier library so, whatever their transport or shipment needs, we can connect them to the right carrier, helping them to mitigate supply chain challenges and move faster than their competitors.”
