What's the consensus surrounding the use of technology?
Transportation and Logistics companies that embrace innovative technology will remain relevant and be valued as a partner to clients in the new world of Supply Chain. Connectrans has positioned itself as a leader in providing technology-based supply chain tools and capabilities that add crucial value to our suite of transportation management solutions. Our recent investment in integrating Trimble and FourKites into our platform is a demonstration of our continued commitment to providing our customers with an exceptional partnership experience.
Supply chain visibility software is a technology solution that was developed to optimize supply chain logistics by combining real-time tracking of shipments with integrated operations and analytics capabilities. The FourKites' proprietary tracking algorithm uses real-time data from a robust GPS, ELD and telematics network, and combines it with historical machine learning analytics to generate the most accurate arrival times possible. By applying new advances in machine learning to rich data sources, Connectrans' customers can quickly achieve the logistical excellence they need to satisfy their customer's demanding requirements.
Trimble's industry-leading TruckMate TMS is the innovative platform that is backed by decades of experience in the transportation industry and built using both industry and technical best practices. Connectrans has selected the TruckMate software solution to enable more effective information sharing and help avoid delays and costly misunderstandings. Without the ability to foster successful communication and collaboration between ourselves, our customers and carrier partners there are financial and other consequences. Using this application to make good decisions, based on accurate information and a set of standard business rules, can help avoid potential challenges as they may arise.
The TM4Web interface is a live connection to the TruckMate TMS for load tracking and shipment visibility. Connectrans has incorporated the application into our value-stack with one purpose in mind: to streamline communication between ourselves and our customers. Registering on TruckMate's web-based, self-service portal will allow us to share critical information and updates with our shipping partners in real time.
