Trimble announced that it has created two new divisions as part of its transportation segment: Trimble Transportation Mobility and Trimble Transportation Enterprise.
Trimble Transportation Mobility
Brian McLaughlin, president of PeopleNet, will be president of the Trimble Transportation Mobility segment. This division will include Trimble business units including PeopleNet, Innovative Software Engineering (ISE), Trimble Oil & Gas Services, Trimble Final Mile Mobility, Trimble Mobility Solutions India (TMSI) and several other mobile startup initiatives.
Fleets are increasingly looking for technology to enable them to solve complex business challenges, ranging from driver shortages and reduced capacity to increased safety and compliance with industry-wide regulations. The creation of Trimble Transportation Mobility, the company says, aims to address these challenges by developing solutions that connect drivers, trucks, freight and data to improve performance and ROI.
“The transportation marketplace is evolving at a rapid pace and we must develop technology that drives efficiency, precision and simplicity throughout the supply chain. Trimble Transportation Mobility brings together a comprehensive set of solutions and industry expertise,” McLaughlin said. “By improving collaboration across our respective businesses, we can ensure that Trimble continues to lead in delivering innovative products to our diverse set of customers and their drivers. We are positioning ourselves for continued growth through a market-centric approach to enable better, safer and greener fleets.”
Trimble Transportation Enterprise
David Wangler, president of TMW Systems, has been appointed president of the Trimble Transportation Enterprise division, which comprises TMW Systems and ALK Technologies.
The Trimble Transportation Enterprise division, the company says, will serve thousands of for-hire and private fleets, freight brokers, third-party logistics providers and other businesses through a portfolio that includes transportation management systems; routing, scheduling, mileage, mapping and mobile navigation solutions; business intelligence and data analytics; asset maintenance software; cloud solutions; and a variety of other products and services.
“A digital revolution is redefining the relationships between shippers, transportation service providers and end users of virtually every type of product. We expect the Transportation Enterprise technologies to play increasingly important roles in helping businesses address and, ultimately, benefit from these changes,” Wangler said. “Our combined solutions offer the opportunity for asset- and non-asset-based businesses of all sizes to dramatically streamline their operations, reduce costs and improve overall competitiveness in a transformational business environment.”
