By Derek Gittoes, VP of Supply Chain Management Product Strategy, OracleApril 12, 2022

An almost endless stream of supply chain disruptions over the past two years has underscored the importance of efficient and resilient logistics. These increasing pressures have made transportation strategies a critical part of business success, so we’re honored to announce that Oracle has once again been positioned as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Transportation Management Systems1 report.

This is the 15th time we have been named a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems (TMS), and of 15 companies evaluated, Oracle was placed highest on the Ability to Execute axis for Oracle Fusion Cloud Transportation Management – part of Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain & Manufacturing (SCM). A complimentary copy of the report is available here, and a complimentary copy of the accompanying 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Transportation Management Systems2 report is available here.
