Trimble has announced the introduction of a new transportation solutions module for less-than-truckload (LTL) operations. LTL Operations for TMW.Suite is a module that operates within Trimble’s original TMS system for truckload providers—TMW.Suite 2018.3 release—and is designed to enable users to manage their LTL operations in one system.
According to Trimble, the LTL Operations for TMW.Suite module allows users who have a variety of business lines, such as full truckload and LTL capabilities, to manage all their processes in the same dashboard, providing them with improved visibility into things like order entry, planning and design for dispatch, cross-dock planning and linehaul dispatch, billing and rating, carrier rating and settlements, customer web quoting, and track and trace abilities.
“LTL Operations is a cutting-edge operational system that was designed with ease of use and automation in mind,” said Ray West, senior vice president and general manager of TMS solutions with Trimble Transportation Enterprise. “This will simplify business operations for our customers who operate in both the truckload and LTL areas, and it will provide a complete TMS solution that allows them to manage their entire business in one system.”
