December 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Transportation Management System Market Growth & Trends

The global transportation management system market size is estimated to reach USD 41.57 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 17.4% from 2024 to 2030, according to a recent report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growth of the transportation management system (TMS) market can be attributed to the rising emphasis of businesses on automating supply chain & logistics processes by utilizing the latest technologies and continuous development in the e-commerce and retail industries. Further, the growing need for greater visibility in the operational and supply chain process by applying automated products coupled with the growing emphasis on data-driven technologies in the logistics industry is expected to offer significant opportunities for the stakeholders in the market during the forecasted period.

The logistics and supply chain industry has evolved significantly in recent years, corresponding to the application of advanced technological solutions. The rising application of data-driven software, connected devices, and cloud-based solutions for various applications has elevated the companies' emphasis on the adoption of advanced software, including TMS. Further, tracking shipments in real-time, increased visibility, and timely delivery services to provide satisfactory customer experience are encouraging companies to opt for TMS solutions. These are the key contributing factors expected to drive the growth of the global TMS market.

For instance, in November 2022, MercuryGate International, Inc. announced that it is expanding its real-time shipment visibility capabilities to include every stage of the shipment lifecycle. As such, the company's customers would now have the distinct advantage of being able to track maritime shipments in real-time, act quickly to address problems, and constantly improve by making enhanced decisions, thereby extending MercuryGate's end-to-end modality management.

Timely delivery, owing to the tracking facility and reduced in-transit time, is a key feature that is particularly in demand. Thus, TMS vendors are increasingly trying to provide these features through their innovative solutions, thereby bridging the gap between order management and warehouse fulfillment. As a result, with the rise in the latest innovations and product development that meet the challenges posed by the growth of the e-commerce industry, the market is growing considerably throughout the forecast period.

Key companies are expanding their geographic footprint by selling their goods across the globe. The supply chain is growing and getting more complicated as a result, thereby necessitating the deployment of an efficient transportation management system. The bilateral trade relations between various nations have also triggered the demand for transportation management systems.

For instance, the bilateral relations between the U.S. and Japan have opened substantial opportunities for trade and investment. Japan is a major market for several goods and services originating in the U.S. A reliable transportation management system capable of offering better visibility, control, and inventory management is of paramount importance to support the growing trade activities between the two countries. Thus, the following factors are expected to strengthen the TMS market growth during the forecast period.
