Riverside, Mo. – Rolling Strong, the provider of driver wellness programs for transportation companies and their drivers, as well as owner-operators, recently announced a partnership with AllTrails, home to the largest collection of hand curated trail guides. The collaboration will bring extensive trail maps, data and content to users of the Rolling Strong app, helping connect drivers to the outdoors.

“With the AllTrails app, truck drivers using Rolling Strong will have information on trails based on their GPS location at their fingertips,” said Stephen Kane, president of Rolling Strong. “Whether your preference is to walk, run, hike or ride a bike, AllTrails is a highly valuable tool for using trail systems throughout the U.S. to engage in healthy exercise while on the road.”

The AllTrails app features maps of more than 100,000 trails that can be filtered by activity, length and difficulty level. Each trail map includes ratings based on reviews by the brand’s community of over 11 million hikers, mountain bikers and runners. Users can find trails based on location, get driving directions to the trail head, keep lists of trails to explore, record walks, runs, hikes and bike rides, and upload pictures and notes. Rolling Strong drivers can now download AllTrails via a link in the Rolling Strong health and wellness app to get out and start exploring.

AllTrails is also providing Rolling Strong AllTrails Pro accounts as part of its gamification experience for achieving health objectives and making better lifestyle choices. The Pro accounts provides access to fully detailed downloadable trail maps for offline use, and real-time overlays, including satellite weather. It also features a real-time tracker that helps trail-goers share trip details such as planned start/finish times, a map of planned routes, send status updates to designated contacts, and stay on course with off-route notifications.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Trimble announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Kuebix, a transportation management system (TMS) provider and creator of North America’s largest connected shipping community. This acquisition will result in Trimble’s private and commercial carrier customers, including more than 1.3 North American trucks, to connect with Kuebix’s shipping company network of 21,000 carriers and companies.  The result, according to Trimble officials, will be a new platform for planning, executing and matching freight demand-capacity. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2020. Financial terms were not disclosed. Kuebix will operate within Trimble’s transportation sector of services.

“Combining Kuebix’s innovative platform and rapidly-growing community of shippers with Trimble’s history of innovation, strength and scale will provide a transformative transportation supply chain solution that creates new opportunities for collaboration throughout the logistics ecosystem,” said James Langley, senior vice president, Trimble Transportation. “This combination will help carriers uncover inefficiencies in their network, make better decisions, optimize operations and transform the way the transportation industry works.”

Today, shippers, carriers and intermediaries operate with what Trimble refers to as “fragmented TMS software.” Kuebix’s capabilities will allow for Trimble to break down technology barriers, enable actionable visibility and improve collaboration. A single logistics platform for all participants in the supply chain, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), is a multi-tenant, cloud platform allowing Trimble to optimize the entire logistics process from order management to financial settlement. Likewise, SaaS will improve efficiency and asset utilization for carriers and provide shippers access to expanded capacity and reduced costs.

“For more than a decade, Kuebix has served shippers with supply chains of all sizes and complexities, transparently connecting them directly to their carriers for the pricing, service levels and visibility they need to run their businesses,” said Dave Lemont, CEO of Kuebix. “We are excited to join Trimble and expand the investment in our platform to serve new audiences and increase collaboration and savings for shippers and carriers alike.”

“The combination of Trimble and Kuebix will accelerate the realization of our vision; a world where shippers, carriers and intermediaries leverage the same powerful TMS platform to provide the market with unprecedented levels of visibility and efficiency,” said Dan Clark, founder and president, Kuebix. “A single-platform TMS across all transportation modes will make it easier for shippers and carriers to plan their strategy, design an optimized transportation network, improve execution, and more accurately
