VIENNA – (BUSINESS WIRE) – April 6, 2020 – Alpega Group announces Alpega TMS, a union of inet and Transwide’s cloud-based Transportation Management Systems. The new software provides a uniquely scalable solution, designed to manage all levels of logistics complexity. At the same time, Alpega Group has been recognized as a Challenger in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems.
Alpega TMS is the combination of two of the market’s most innovative, established and trusted solutions. inet has long been a trusted solution for companies with highly complex and unique supply chain needs. Transwide’s focus has always been on transport execution by helping businesses looking for rapid ROI and process improvements. Together, as Alpega TMS, these solutions offer a truly unique scalable solution.
Speaking on the launch, Todd DeLaughter, CEO of Alpega said: “The transportation industry has changed immensely in the past few years and businesses that want to thrive need to be flexible. The digitalization of logistics processes is central to driving this growth, but we recognize there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
“Leveraging the experience and technology of inet and Transwide means Alpega TMS represents industry best practice and we believe is one of the most advanced software suites in the sector. Our unique scalability and best-in-breed standalone solutions ensure shippers benefit from a system that evolves alongside their needs, regardless of the complexity of their logistics processes.”
This unique scalability means companies can start out with a solution focused on Full Truck Load (FTL) and road transport, before expanding to incorporate Live Tracking or Advanced Planning, while addressing multi-mode Land, Sea, Rail and Air with Less-than Truck Loads (LTL).
“I’m delighted Gartner has recognized Alpega Group as a Challenger in its Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems,” says DeLaughter. “We believe it’s evidence that we’re bringing something special to the market. With Alpega TMS there’s no need to worry about changing TMS when your logistics process gets more complex.”
This is the ninth time that Alpega Group has been recognized in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems. The report evaluates vendors based on ability to execute and for completeness of vision.
