COLUMBUS, OH: BestTransport, the leading provider of cloud-based Transportation Management Solutions (TMS) that enables shippers, freight suppliers and carriers to efficiently plan, execute and manage shipping transport operations, has been mentioned in the annual report of Gartner Magic Quadrant for 2016.

BestTransport's solutions offer customers visibility into their logistics operations and the associated costs, which in turn generates opportunities for savings through cost reduction and cost avoidance. Company’s TMS enhances shipment visibility, optimizes carrier selection, delivers metrics to scale progress, and facilitates collaboration between shippers and carriers. BestTransport ensures near elimination of the manual processing of shipments by installing a fully cloud-based solution set which speeds and simplifies implementation. "With BestTransport, there is no software to install and no releases to manage; clients pay only for the value received. Because our company performs all system upgrades, clients always have access to the latest technology without the cost or involvement of an installed solution," says Rick Frio, President and CEO at BestTransport.

“We have successfully implemented our cloud-based TMS software globally and are supporting some of the most complex shipping requirements and complicated supply chains in existence. Our customers are nationally and internationally known brands in the metals, forest products and CPG markets,” says BestTransport’s CMO, Alan Gold. Presently BestTransport caters to a market where it competes with players like Alcoa, Allegheny Technologies, Worthington Industries and more.

Inclusion in the Gartner MQ report is believed to guide clients for effectively selecting leading TMS vendors. The company believes its inclusion in this year’s report was based on product footprint, demonstrated experience with complex freight loads and extended supply chains as well as its work with large, international companies.
