Trimble In Transportation Management Systems Alliance

Posted on August 19, 2014

Trimble announced that it has entered into a strategic alliance with 3Gtms, Inc., a privately-held provider of transportation management systems (TMS). The alliance includes an equity investment in 3Gtms by Trimble and a commercial reseller agreement with TMW Systems, part of Trimble's Transportation and Logistics Division. 3Gtms offers 3G-TM planning and shipment management software that will be marketed by TMW Systems as part of its transportation solutions portfolio. Financial terms were not disclosed.

3G-TM can be integrated with TMW's enterprise transportation management software to provide the first single-source solution for running both asset-based and non-asset transportation service organizations. The combined solution addresses the rapidly emerging IT needs from the operational convergence among motor carriers, third-party logistics (3PLs) and brokers, Trimble said.

The 3G-TM, on a single platform, is designed to simplify end-to-end logistics processes, implementation, onboarding and training. The proprietary planning and execution algorithm enables real-time reaction to changes in customer orders and shipments and allows review for cost savings opportunities. Rating capabilities provide tools for carrier negotiations and flexibility in customer pricing.
