Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) 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. The announcement was made at Trimble’s third annual in.sight user conference + expo.
The LTL Operations for TMW.Suite module allows Trimble customers who have a variety of business lines, such as full truckload and LTL capabilities, to manage all their processes in the same dashboard. It provides users 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, 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.”
Other key benefits of the LTL Operations for Suite module include:
- Reducing onboarding costs for new staff with a state of the art user interface
- Improving operational efficiencies
- Leveraging automated terminal routing, freight bill rating and carrier rating
- Enabling secure segmentation of business processes through customization
The 2018 in.sight user conference + expo is taking place from September 9 - 12 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. Hosted by Trimble, the three-day event features the leading companies from the transportation and logistics industries who will showcase the latest and greatest technologies.
