Shipium Recognized as Representative Vendor in the 2024 Gartner® Market Guide™ for Multi-Carrier Parcel Management Solutions

"Optimize and consolidate parcel shipments by using an MCPMS as a complementary solution to the TMS and/or WMS, ERP or OMS, or as a transportation solution for shippers that primarily use parcel as their mode of transportation."

— 2024 Gartner Market Guide for Multi-Carrier Parcel Management Solutions

Key findings of the report include:

  • Global parcel delivery volumes continue to grow, despite macroeconomic challenges and significant regional variations.
  • Issues around flexibility and customer experience continue to grow in tandem with demand, despite inflationary pressures and the partial reduction in delivery capacity constraints. These increases, spurred by multichannel retail and B2B e-commerce, are unlikely to reduce.
  • Companies are faced with increased parcel delivery costs, driven by fuel and labor cost inflation, and shippers often lack the tools to optimize their transportation spend effectively.
  • Most providers of ERP, transportation management systems (TMS), order management systems (OMS) and warehouse management systems (WMS) do not specialize in parcel capability. Rather, they partner with a noncompeting multicarrier parcel management solution (MCPMS) to support their customers. This leaves users with a gap in capability and need for a stand-alone solution.
