Trimble has introduced a new transportation solutions module for less-than-truckload operations that operates within the company’s TMW.Suite transportation management system.
LTL Operations for TMW.Suite is designed to enable users to manage LTL operations within a single system and is part of the 2018.3 release of TMW.Suite.
The LTL Operations module allows Trimble customers with a variety of business lines, such as full truckload and LTL capabilities, to manage all processes in the same dashboard. It offers improved visibility into aspects such as 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 features 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
