SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Trimble says its TMW.Suite and TruckMate transportation management system (TMS) solutions are now available via a cloud-based subscription model. TMW.Suite and TruckMate are two of Trimble’s flagship TMS solutions, which enable transportation and logistics providers to better manage their transportation operations and improve efficiencies throughout their organization, according to James Langley, general manager of Trimble Transportation Enterprise.

Built on decades of experience, Trimble’s TMW.Suite and TruckMate have been carefully bundled and backed by a prescriptive implementation and training options, he said.

The cloud-based options provide an ideal solution for both asset and non-asset based companies of all sizes looking to implement a scalable TMS without the need for on-site servers or extensive IT oversight—saving money and improving outcomes. On-premise options will continue to be available as well.

“Cloud-based TMW.Suite and TruckMate combine the proven quality of Trimble’s leading software solutions with the lower capital costs and faster return on investment that come from subscription-based models,” Langley said. “With this new platform, carriers of all sizes can take advantage of the process improvements found in order to cash dispatch solutions available in TMWSuite and TruckMate, enabling operational efficiencies.”

The cloud-hosted versions of TMW.Suite and TruckMate are offered as scalable, subscription-based platforms designed to fit fleets’ precise needs and adapt as their business grows. Trimble-managed upgrades also allow fleets to take advantage of new software releases via managed updates, eliminating the need for carriers to upgrade their systems manually.

In addition to these new cloud-based subscriptions, Trimble offers subscription-based versions of its other TMS solutions, including Innovative Access, Access Plus and TL2000. Asset maintenance modules for Trimble’s SQL and IBM i platforms are also available via subscription.

“By implementing a cloud-hosted TMS platform, fleets can focus on what they do best – running their companies – rather than managing their servers,” Langley said. “This new option is just one of the ways Trimble is continually evolving to meet customers’ needs through a diverse and flexible portfolio of solutions.”

TAMPA, Florida — Transflo, a mobile, telematics and business process automation provider to the transportation industry, has announced the AI-12 Dual Facing Dashcam solution as part of its Mobile+ ecosystem of digital and telematics solutions for truck fleets and drivers.

Surfsight provides real-time video visibility and insight into fleet performance and challenging situations on the road, helping fleets reduce risk and insurance claims while improving safety and productivity.

Integrated with Transflo’s telematics platform, the cloud-connected Surfsight dashcam uses front-facing and cabin-facing cameras. The camera uses built-in artificial intelligence to detect hazards on the road, and infrared to recognize driver distractions in the vehicle. The driver is automatically alerted.

Surfsight streams from vehicles to secure cloud-based servers, providing fleet managers with continuous access to video. Managers can review video of groups or individual vehicles via a customized, secure, online dashboard using a web browser running on any type of device. Surfsight also provides access to on-demand video retrieval and review on the company’s cloud platform.

Surfsight dashcams cost just $200 and monthly subscriptions start at $25 per month as part of Transflo Bundle+, which extends the capabilities of the Transflo Mobile+ platform.

“Increasingly, video is an important tool for improving safety and operational visibility,” said Doug Schrier, vice president of product and innovation for Transflo. “The Transflo Bundle+ platform is the ideal way to incorporate vehicle video and telematics into your digital workflow.”

U.S. trailer net orders closed 2019 down 51% from full-year 2018

U.s. trailer net orders closed 2019 down 51% from full-year 2018
ACT Research reports that even though most of the major trailer categories showed month-over-month gains, the drop in dry can orders was enough to put the total industry results in the red.

COLUMBUS, Ind. – New U.S. trailer orders of 18,400 were down 13% month-over-month in December, and after accounting for cancellations, net orders of 17,700 dropped 11%. Longer-term comparisons show net orders down 35% year-over-year and 51% lower compared to full-year 2018, according to this month’s issue of ACT Research’s State of the Industry: U.S. Trailer Report.

ACT Research’s State of the Industry: U.S. Trailers report provides a monthly review of the current US trailer market statistics, as well as trailer OEM build plans and market indicators divided by all major trailer types, including backlogs, build, inventory, new orders, cancellations, net orders and factory shipments. It is accompanied by a database that gives historical information from 1996 to the present.

“While seven of the ten major trailer categories posted month-over-month gains, the sequential 32% drop in dry van orders was significant enough to pull the total industry results into the red,” said Frank Maly, director of CV transportation analysis and research at ACT Research. “Continued softness in both freight volumes and rates are generating financial headwinds for fleets, and as a result, their investment plans continue to be extremely cautious.”

Maly continued, “Fleets are aware that, as a result of weaker OEM orderboards, lead times are dramatically shorter than this time last year, so any orders placed now are likely to be delivered in a much more acceptable timeframe. It is also likely that pricing will be more advantageous.”

DENTON, Texas ­— Werner Enterprises has selected the Peterbilt Model 579EV for their battery electric-powered truck pilot program.

“Werner Enterprises has long been regarded as an industry pioneer, and Peterbilt is honored to partner with them and have our 579EV lead their electric operations,” said PACCAR Vice President and Peterbilt General Manager, Jason Skoog. “Peterbilt is leading the charge in electric vehicle development, with three applications for zero-emissions performance.”

The 579EV delivered to Werner utilizes a TransPower Energy Storage Subsystem with a total storage capacity of 352 kWh.  It is driven by a Meritor Blue-Horizon Mid-Ship Motor Drive Subsystem with up to 430 HP, features an estimated range of about 150 miles and a charging time as little as 1-hour when a fast-charging system is utilized.

Funding for the tractor was provided through the California Air Resource Board California Climate Investments (CCI) program, along with the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

“Werner is committed to finding alternative ways to keep our trucks environmentally-friendly while staying at the front edge of technology,” said Werner Enterprises President and Chief Executive Officer Derek Leathers. “Now, we’re excited about putting on some real-world miles with a dedicated customer in southern California over the next year.”
