E2open improved its position on both the ability to execute and completeness of vision axes compared to the previous year.

Synergies realized by merging Cloud Logistics with E2open include expanded financial resources, the addition of new modes of transport, TMS global sales and operational coverage, and enhanced end-to-end capabilities that link planning to execution.

“When E2open acquired Cloud Logistics, we knew it was an essential piece of the puzzle for removing inherent inefficiencies in handoffs between modes of transport and providing large-enterprise customers with complete end-to-end planning and execution across all tiers of the supply chain. We are honored to be recognized by Gartner,” said Michael Farlekas, president and chief executive officer of E2open. “Modern transportation management is a critical element in our supply chain convergence strategy that enables us to expand value for customers. Adding intuitive “TMS Made Easy” technology to E2open’s platform and combining it with the world’s largest ocean carrier network is a game changer. The result is a new level of visibility and control for both domestic and global commerce.”

The Gartner Magic Quadrant positions vendors based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. Additionally, Cloud Logistics by E2open is rated at 4.7 out of 5 stars on the Gartner Peer Insights review website for the TMS market, based on 10 reviews, as of 29 March 2019.

E2open created Cloud Logistics by E2open after acquiring Cloud Logistics in September 2018 and quickly integrated its transportation management technology into the E2open network platform and logistics visibility offerings. The company subsequently acquired INTTRA in November 2018, giving customers access to the world’s largest network of ocean carriers and more than one-quarter of global maritime bookings. E2open is in the process of adding parcel and Rail Rule 11 functionality to establish a complete transportation management footprint for complex multi-modal shippers. The result will be a modern and easy-to-use offering encompassing all modes of transport for domestic and global shippers of all sizes, from small and medium-sized businesses to large enterprises.
