AFS Recognized in 2021 Gartner® Market Guide for Benchmarking Services for Transportation Rates and Logistics Performance Metrics

Sometimes it’s good to be talked about – as AFS was recognized as a Representative Vendor in the 2021 Gartner® Market Guide for Benchmarking Services for Transportation Rates and Logistics Performance Metric1 report.

AFS was one of the 19 companies named in this report. According to GARTNER, “Vendors included in this Market Guide have customers that are successfully using their products and services. Selections are based on Gartner analyst opinions, vendor surveys and references that validate solution capabilities.”

Needless to say, we’re over the moon to be recognized, especially since it comes just a few months after also being named in the 2021 Gartner® Market Guide for Freight Audit and Payment Providers2 as one of the “Representative Vendors in FAP.” However, we’re also not surprised, because in our opinion we’ve been diligently working to provide customers with top-notch benchmarking guidance since we were established in 1982.

Huge thanks to our leadership team and employees for the excellent work they’ve done to pave the way for this recognition – and to our clients whose votes of confidence have helped make it possible.
