CargoSnap is one of five companies worldwide to be named a Cool Vendor in the October 2019 Gartner ‘Cool Vendors in Supply Chain Management Technologies’1 report. According to the report, “higher-maturity supply chains look to exploit emerging and innovative solutions to advance their supply chain technology maturity and advance their digital visions. Supply chain technology leaders should use this research to identify emerging vendors that can drive enhanced business value.”

Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, provides the following: “Gartner’s definition of a Cool Vendor is a small company offering a technology or service that is: innovative — enables users to do things they couldn’t do before, impactful — has or will have a business impact — not just technology for its own sake, and intriguing — has caught Gartner’s interest during the past six months.”2
