SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Trimble says it has integrated its TMW.Suite transportation management solution with SaferWatch software, an online solution from Truckstop.com that provides carrier information and compliance monitoring.
Now, TMW.Suite customers have the capability to more effectively manage sourcing and on-boarding of carriers with automated carrier selection rules, on-demand certificates of insurance, CSA-e percentile scores and other key data points to ensure users work with qualified carriers, according to Jay Delaney, senior director, product management for Trimble’s Transportation Division.
TMW.Suite is one of Trimble’s transportation management system (TMS) solutions, which enable transportation and logistics providers to better manage nearly every aspect of their business, he said.
Delaney said the new integration enables streamlined carrier approvals to help increase efficiency, decrease internal costs and scale for growth.
In addition, the automated carrier selection rules will enable customers to better reduce the risk of on-boarding and working with carriers that do not comply with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations. This will help Trimble users ensure that their operations are up and running at all times without having to worry about being shut down.
“The integration between TMW.Suite and SaferWatch is meant for user ease-of-use while Trimble users look to work with new partners,” Delaney said. “With SaferWatch’s focus on staying up-to-date on FMCSA regulations and its insurance database, our customers can be confident that they are working with qualified carriers.”
“We are very excited to be announcing this integration with TMW.Suite. Automating carrier compliance and management through integration gives our mutual customers the freedom to do what they do best — move more freight,” said Mark Draeb, general manager of SaferWatch.
