In January 2020, Trimble announced that it signed a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held Kuebix, a leading transportation management system (TMS) provider and creator of North America’s largest connected shipping community.
Through this acquisition, Trimble will be able to bring together its network of private fleet and commercial carrier customers, which collectively represent more than 1.3 million commercial trucks in North America, with Kuebix’s extensive community of shipping companies.
Recently, Kuebix was recognized as a Challenger in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems. This annual report examines the TMS market, evaluating TMS providers and their capabilities in helping users leverage technology to improve supply chain efficiencies.
“Our velocity in the marketplace continues with 24,000 customers and growing as a result of our superior user experience, rapid implementations, and innovative technology,” said Dan Clark, Vice President of Product Innovation & Strategy at Kuebix. “We are excited to be recognized as a Challenger and believe that Kuebix’s positioning in the Challengers Quadrant validates our leadership, vision, and ability to continuously deliver value to our customers.”
Why Kuebix’s Modular TMS Solution Stands Out
Kuebix TMS can be implemented more quickly than more traditional monolithic software. Kuebix is a modular cloud-based solution that allows small to medium-sized companies up to the largest enterprises to select features and integrations to configure the ideal TMS for their business. Users can rapidly connect parcel, LTL, full truckload, rail, ocean and air carriers on a single Kuebix platform. And since it’s built on the latest cloud technology, Kuebix can seamlessly scale to meet any company’s complex needs.
