There is a clear divide in the TMS market. Some TMS systems are provided by technology companies, while others are marketplaces that combine their managed services. The marketplaces also compete as a carrier on their own platform. The question is: how much would you trust their data when they have a clear conflict of interest with their rating engine? This is very similar to carriers such as UPS or FedEx providing their software and integrating with every other vendor in the market for rate shopping. But obviously, it is in the best interest of these managed services providers to push their brokerage service and contracted rates above anyone else. So where does CH Robinson Navisphere in its capabilities? And how does it compare with other Supply Chain solutions out there?
In today's episode, we invited a panel of industry experts for a live discussion on LinkedIn to conduct an independent review of CH Robinson/Navisphere capabilities. We covered many grounds, including how the TMS solutions owned by managed services companies differ from those owned by technology companies. Finally, we covered why CH Robinson is so powerful with their data because of their regulatory certificates and alignment with ocean, air, and custom brokerage bodies.
