Trimble and Kuebix have announced new capabilities for its Community Load Match platform, a solution that facilitates collaboration between shippers and carriers to optimize how freight moves throughout the supply chain. Kuebix is a Trimble company and part of its Transportation Sector.
Community Load Match enables shippers to use advanced matching capabilities to more easily find available carriers for their truckload shipments and leverage improved map visualization through Trimble MAPS. For carriers, these capabilities give them direct access to Kuebix’s community of more than 20,000 shippers for matching shipment requirements with available truckload capacity.
Kuebix integrates with Trimble’s TMW.Suite and TruckMate carrier transportation management systems (TMS), allowing shipment data to flow between systems for maximum efficiency.
Community Load Match connects shippers with a Trimble’s network of 1.3 million commercial trucks, digital freight matching services and brokers to meet truckload needs on one platform, the company says. Shippers can request and receive rates from the carrier community, including their contracted carriers. Kuebix’s shipping community is composed almost entirely of direct shippers and manufacturers.
Trimble says Community Load Match provides the ability to designate preferred lanes, ensuring that carriers are only connected with shipping customers with requirements in lanes they are looking to fill. Kuebix also offers shippers complimentary rate assessments leveraging community carriers to optimize logistics operations and source new capacity.
