“We consider our positioning in the Niche Players quadrant by Gartner a confirmation of our mission to deliver a uniquely designed TMS that delivers flexibility and power,” said Mitch Weseley, CEO of 3Gtms. “We continue to live out our mission by earning a high customer satisfaction rate and by adding depth to our 3G-TM product, including the recent release of the first-of-its-kind Load Management Workspace, as well as the 3Gtms Visibility Platform that translates and shares information from internal and external systems for unprecedented enterprise visibility.”
3Gtms customers praise the flexibility of the TMS technology and note that despite larger TMS companies that have existed for a longer period of time, the 3Gtms solution offers better usability, flexibility and cost-saving results.

The 3Gtms team truly understands our business and they are enthusiastic about helping us solve problems. They are a terrific partner.”
According to the report, “Gartner continues to see the TMS market grow at an accelerated rate. Factors such as the need to reduce costs; improve internal productivity, efficiency and customer service; increase visibility; and make better use of capacity are driving the growth of the market through 2022.”
