RateLinx recognized in latest Gartner report
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (May 3, 2022) – RateLinx, a leader in supply chain, logistics, transportation, visibility, and payment platforms, today announced they are positioned by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems for its offering, ShipLinx. This is the second time RateLinx has been named in the Magic Quadrant. The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute.
RateLinx’s ShipLinx solution delivers advanced multicarrier, multi-modal—including small parcel management—in a global, high-volume, enterprise-class TMS. RateLinx’s differentiated approach comes from a focus on carrier compliance and data cleansing as part of its integrated data services. RateLinx converges TMS, parcel, freight pay, and audit along with visibility and analytics to allow shippers one stop for quick data management and functionality within one solution or leveraged as an add-on to existing solutions for the specific functionality.
“We believe to be named in this Magic Quadrant is a great honor and another example of our commitment to deliver innovative software and service solutions,” says Shannon Vaillancourt, President and Founder of RateLinx. “With implementation times of less than 30 days and the ability to deliver fast time-to-value and immediate ROI, our solutions are exceeding market demands. We are proud to help organizations reduce costs within the entire logistics cycle.”
Magic Quadrant reports are a culmination of rigorous, fact-based research in specific markets, providing a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the providers in markets where growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct. Providers are positioned into four quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries, and Niche Players. The research enables you to get the most from market analysis in alignment with your unique business and technology needs.
“Many shippers are not in a position to replace their current systems, but they desperately need visibility, analytics, and ways to augment their current systems to give them a competitive advantage. Enhancing an existing environment with ShipLinx saves costs, delivers a faster ROI, and gives a quicker time-to-value,” says Nate Endicott, SVP of Global Sales and Alliances at RateLinx. “We believe it’s a privilege to be recognized in this Magic Quadrant as we continue to support and deliver results to our customers.”
Known for their global TMS, real-time visibility, freight invoice management, and advanced analytics capabilities, RateLinx analyzes logistics performance and optimizes transportation network strategies across planning, execution, tracking, and payment—all in one place. Equipped with the complete picture and context, customers can reduce costs, optimize their network, digitize their decision-making, and improve customer satisfaction.
