Real-Time Transportation Visibility: 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant Results

Global and regional disruptions have reinforced the vital importance of supply chains, but also highlighted their fragility in some cases. Today, perhaps more than ever there is a greater need for investments in supply chain technology solutions like visibility, artificial intelligence (AI), and predictive analytics to drive better resilience, agility, and performance.

The growing importance of real-time visibility

Research confirms that supply chain resilience is a top priority for many shippers as they navigate global disruptions and increased expectations. According to the 2021 Gartner Future of Supply Chain Survey of nearly 1,000 supply chain professionals, “60% of CSCOs are expected to make faster, more accurate and consistent decisions in real time.”

To emphasize the importance and growth of transportation visibility solutions, Gartner recently published its 2022 Magic Quadrant for Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platforms (RTTVP). The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors based on completeness of vision and ability to execute; helping shippers visually compare vendor options and analyze how each provider aligns with their business goals.

We’re proud to be included and named as a Challenger in this trusted report by one of the world’s leading research and advisory companies. Our real-time visibility platform, Navisphere® Vision, is backed by the scale of the world’s most connected logistics platform.

Create consistency and predictability through visibility

What valuable business insights can your company gain from real-time visibility? Beyond seeing your entire supply chain in one place, real-time visibility can help you achieve greater predictability through improved inventory management, automated decision modeling, and connectivity to supply chain providers.

Real-time visibility tools also help you manage the exponential growth of data produced by supply chains and increased customer expectations.

Turn data into actionable insights

As the amount of supply chain data explodes, turning that data into useable information can be challenging—especially if you are pulling the data from multiple platforms. Add agility to your supply chain with predictive and prescriptive analytics that reveal actionable business insights.

Deliver on promises to customers

Today’s customers expect to see their order progress through every stage of the journey. Additionally, delivery speed, flexibility, and consistency are not only expectations but demands.

This makes supply chain visibility vital to delivering positive customer experiences. With real-time visibility and proactive alerts, Navisphere Vision makes you the first to know about shipment status updates, delays, or disruptions so you can deliver quality service to your customers.

Build your business case for real-time visibility

Real-time transportation visibility platforms are no longer considered an emerging technology. Instead, they’ve become pillars of modern supply chain strategy. And they will only grow in importance as the market evolves and technology advances.
