LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top nine leading vendors in their recent global trade management (GTM) software market report until 2020. This research report also lists five other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Since 2005, the volume of international trade has been twice as fast as the global average due to swift globalization. With trade becoming global, it became imperative for vendors to make their production and supply chains as efficient as possible. Quick and efficient communication between intermediaries such as transportation and logistics service providers, custom brokers, foreign trade agents, and third-party service providers is imperative. GTM solutions help organizations achieve this and help them gain an edge over their competitors.

GTM solutions address the requirements of logistics management, regulatory compliance, import and export processes, and financial information of an organization. These solutions streamline and automate business processes and enable businesses to determine the total landed cost. The implementation of trade management solution helps increase productivity, allows real-time access to different supply chain components, and increases visibility across the entire organization,” says Ishmeet Kaur, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for enterprise application research.

Competitive vendor landscape

The key vendors in the market space continuously innovate their offerings and build capabilities as there is less service differentiation in the market. The GTM software vendors invest in the development of specific and customized solutions to ensure their presence in the global market. Major vendors such as Amber Road and Oracle provide differentiating features like supply chain analytics, automated restricted party screening, and order collaboration.

End-users choose the vendors based on the features and quality of the solution. This allows smaller vendors to compete with larger players more effectively, thereby increasing the competition in the market irrespective of brand value. Some of the key features that end-users consider are compliance management, duty management, export management, supply chain visibility, transportation management, and analytics.
