Real-time Freight Matching Through TransCore Now Available For TMWSuite
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The first commercial software integration to bring customers the benefit of TransCore’s 3sixty Connexion with full access to TransCore’s DAT® network of truck loads and carriers is now available from Trimble Transportation, Inc. Offering real-time, available truck searching that directly populates planning screens in the popular TMWSuite enterprise transportation software, the dynamic 3sixty Connexion interface brings more industry-leading brokerage capabilities to TMW software.
Trimble Transportation, noted software provider to logistics firms, trucking, construction, utility and municipal fleets, today announced commercial availability for this new interface with TransCore’s 3sixty Freight Match marketplace following successful customer testing in production use. TMW, based in Cleveland, Ohio, operates four additional offices in the United States and Canada.
The new, real-time Connexion interface capability was developed for fast-paced logistics operations using TMWSuite software, eliminating the need to enter loads and trucks twice with an interface for 3sixty Freight Match batch-oriented load and truck posting and search service. Trimble Transportation is the first third-party commercial software provider to bring the advanced 3sixty Connexion integration to its customers. TransCore’s Connexion is the only Web-services interface to a large freight matching marketplace and provides unique capabilities to support better, more effective integration with transportation management software.
