Trimble highlights supply chain collaboration at in.sight user conference + expo

Trimble provided its vision for the future of supply chain collaboration during the opening session of its annual in.sight user conference + expo.

The fifth annual event was hosted online in 2020 and featured three days of educational sessions, speakers and networking with stakeholders from across the transportation industry.

The theme for this year’s in.sight is “We Are One.” Trimble says the event was focused on how collaboration is essential to keeping the transportation supply chain moving. The opening session highlighted the importance of this sentiment, not only in navigating current economic and pandemic-related challenges but also in improving the performance and efficiency of the supply chain in the months and years ahead.

The opening session detailed Trimble’s vision for enabling this collaboration and creating a connected supply chain. The company says this includes developing solutions that solve inefficiency challenges by increasing transparency, improving carrier resource utilization and providing shippers with freight coverage at the best possible value. Trimble points to its acquisition of Kuebix and community load match enhancing how truckload capacity is found.
