Trimble Paves the Way to a Connected Supply Chain
Commercial Carrier Journal 8/25/20
By Aaron Huff
James Langley on Monday used an illustration to explain the company’s strategy during the opening session of Trimble‘s annual insight user conference.
The conference was hosted online for the first time in its five-year history of Trimble ownership. As Langley spoke, a highway appeared on the screen leading to a connected Kuebix platform.
Onramps lined both sides of the highway to represent the various products in Trimble Transportation’s portfolio, which include telematics, video safety, and transportation management software (TMS) for carriers, and others.
Trimble acquired Kuebix, a cloud-based TMS for shippers, in January. This marked a turning point for the company, which previously focused solely on hardware and software products for asset and non-asset transportation providers.
Collectively, the commercial and private fleets who use its products manage more than 1.3 million commercial assets in North America. With the Kuebix acquisition, Trimble is now able to offer those customers access to freight matching opportunities from more than 20,000 shippers and freight intermediaries that use the Kuebix platform.
