Trimble adds new capabilities to Transportation Management Systems portfolio

During its 2020 virtual in.sight user conference and expo, Trimble announced new integrations and enhancements for its portfolio of Transportation Management System (TMS) solutions.

Available for TMW.Suite, TruckMate and Innovative IES users, these features are designed to create efficiencies and streamline operations for carriers, brokers and third-party logistics (3PL) providers.

Enhancements that span multiple Trimble TMS solutions include:

  • KeepTruckin integration: With the new integration to KeepTruckin‘s mobile communications tool, Trimble says carriers are better able to take advantage of information such as electronic driving log (ELD) data, position, geofencing and messaging. Available directly within Innovative or TMW.Suite TMS, this integration enables effective communication with drivers and continual monitoring of hours and status.

Trimble also debuted several product-specific enhancements available for TruckMate, Innovative IES and TMW.Suite.

Enhancements to the TruckMate platform include:

  • project44 integration: An integration with project44 provides TruckMate broker and 3PL customers with quicker access to rate quotes and easier management of load tenders and acceptance. With this new tool, Trimble says brokers and 3PLs can gain access to carriers directly within their TMS without the need to maintain individual connections.
  • Container IQ in-port tracking: Container IQ has been enhanced to enable TruckMate intermodal carriers to track containers in port, providing greater visibility into container location. Using information in Container IQ, intermodal fleets are also able to set appointments with the port to authorize charges and validate the pickup company for added security.
  • WorkOptima integration: Along with the existing TMW – Synergize solution, TruckMate customers now have a user-configurable cloud-based solution for document and process automation. When using WorkOptima with TruckMate, carriers and brokers can manage documents, workflows and processes in one solution, Trimble says.

Enhancements to modules within the Innovative IES platform include:

  • New, flexible dashboard: Innovative’s new Windows-based dashboard allows users to add data content to their screen and then drag and drop it into the format that works best for them, Trimble says. Content such as Available Loads, Assigned Order, Orders In Progress and Units are available and users can also incorporate additional content such as reports, maps and graphs to further improve the management of their daily activities.

Options for new TMW.Suite users include:

  • Fuel Dispatch subscription services: Available for fuel marketers as well as carriers, the Fuel Dispatch subscription bundles offer a standalone solution to improve planning and dispatch operations, streamline in-ground inventory management and replenishment of products and track fuel deliveries. This solution bundle is designed to help companies leverage cloud hosting services to limit IT expenses and requirements, while also predictably managing their technology expenses through monthly payments without an upfront capital investment, Trimble says.
