Trimble Transportation for the seventh time in eight years was selected as a “Top 100 Logistics IT Supplier” by the editors of Inbound Logistics, a business journal reaching more than 200,000 professionals in the logistics, supply chain and transportation markets.
The magazine’s editorial staff develops the annual list based on how information technology providers optimize their transportation and logistics operations, as well as how their solutions solve a variety of logistics challenges and improve processes.
“Business leaders are struggling to balance the need for advance planning against the demands for supply chain agility, fewer inventory touches and wrangling the complexity of omni-channel and e-commerce distribution,” said Felecia Stratton, the magazine’s editor. “Trimble Transportation continues to provide solutions to help meet those challenges, and that’s why Inbound Logistics editors have recognized it as one of 2017’s Top 100 Logistics IT providers.”
TMW transportation management solutions and related technologies empower third party logistics providers, freight brokers and other transportation businesses to integrate closely with their customers, manage contract carriers, monitor order and shipment status, improve customer service, and enhance profitability. These solutions can be expanded with web portals, transportation modeling and routing optimization tools to reduce total transportation costs, improve worker productivity and expand customer self-service capabilities.
“We are proud that Inbound Logistics has once again recognized the powerful capabilities and proven benefits of our solutions,” said Trimble Transportation President and CEO David W. Wangler. “We are among an elite group of transportation IT providers, with an uncommon range of solutions that touch virtually every stage of the transportation life cycle.”
