Leicestershire business one of two UK companies included logistics industry report

A Leicestershire company that provides transport management systems to organisations across Europe is one of just two British businesses to be named in a global industry report.

3T Logistics, Europe’s largest independent 4th party logistics provider, is celebrating its inclusion in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems for the second consecutive year.

Thirteen companies from across the world were included in the Magic Quadrant, which was published at the end of March. The report focuses on multimodal domestic transportation management systems (TMS) that are a subset of the global TMS market.  It evaluates TMS vendors across 15 weighted criteria, recognising them based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Based in Enderby, 3T Logistics’ Event platform was included in the report. The cloud-based Event system enables companies to manage their transport systems more efficiently, enabling direct communication with carriers to manage orders and upload documents such as PODs and invoices. The system also provides routing and scheduling capabilities for companies with their own fleets. 3T was also recognised for its collaboration with the universities of Nottingham and Warwick.

3T’s managing director Tim Fawkes commented:

“We are extremely proud to be again positioned in the Gartner Magic Quadrant which we feel is such a prestigious document in the transport management industry. To us, our positioning confirms us as one of the top TMS providers and rewards our innovative and unique approach to transport management. We believe that Gartner’s repeat recognition of 3T Logistics is a result of our continual enhancements to existing systems and new innovations.”

Although 3T’s main customer base is in Europe, the company is expanding operations in North America and Asia, aiming to build and expand local partnerships. The company also has a strong presence in the aftermarket, automotive, construction, retail and packaging industries.

3T Logistics solves complex logistics challenges for companies with a freight spend of between $1.5 million and $100 million. Some of the companies that use the 3T TMS include JCB, Honda, Kuehne + Nagel, Klockner Pentaplast, Recticel and Aggreko. For more information about 3T Logistics, go to www.3t-europe.com.
