Gartner recently released the Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems (TMS) report1, and Blue Yonder has again been named a Leader in the report.

Multiple subcomponents make up comprehensive multimodal TMS solution. Per our understanding, to determine this year’s leaders, Gartner analysts evaluated vendors’ offerings considering capabilities such as procurement, rate management, optimization and planning, execution, global capabilities, freight payment, and transportation analytics enhanced with machine learning principals that will fuel new value initiatives in customer deployments.

As a Leader for 10 times running in the Magic Quadrant for TMS, Blue Yonder is proud to once again be positioned as a Leader with the furthest position on the Completeness of Vision axis. Blue Yonder was positioned among a total of four vendors in the Leaders quadrant.

According to the 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Transportation Management Systems (TMS) report2 also released recently, the Blue Yonder solution scored in the highest three vendors for Levels 2, 3, 4, and 5 Complexity Use Cases.

With this latest Gartner Transportation Management System Magic Quadrant, Blue Yonder is the only company recognized a Leader in three Gartner Magic Quadrant reports3 covering supply chain planning, transportation management and warehouse management.
