TMW Systems Partners with FleetLocate by Spireon to Provide an Integrated Approach to Trailer Utilization
Cleveland, OH / Knoxville, TN, Aug 03, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
TMW Systems, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise software to transportation and logistics companies, announced today a new partnership with Spireon Inc. For-hire carriers and private fleets now have detailed information on trailer location, capacity and operations of their trailer fleet to improve utilization and compliance.
The partnership provides prebuilt integrations between Spireon's FleetLocate solution and TMW Systems' TMW Suite and TMT Fleet Maintenance solutions. The TMWSuite integration captures GPS position information from the trailer, whether tethered or not, for visibility to all trailers to support dispatch operations. Joint customers will improve trailer utilization by having the right trailer at the right place at the right time. The TMT Fleet Maintenance integration captures GPS position information and mileage. The integration provides automatic scheduling of preventive maintenance work based on actual miles travelled and automatically alerts the maintenance department when a trailer requiring repairs or maintenance enters the yard. The FleetLocate Trailer and Asset Intelligence solution is available from Spireon. The FleetLocate Integration modules for TMWSuite and TMT Fleet Maintenance solutions are available from TMW Systems.
With these new integration modules, fleets can capture and leverage business intelligence to save significant costs, improve customer service and make faster, more profitable business decisions. FleetLocate's real-time trailer visibility enables fleets to see which trailers are underutilized, and where they have a real need for more trailers. This has allowed transportation companies to reduce their overall trailer count and still do the same amount of work.
The integrated solutions are already providing benefits:
Bengal Transportation Services - Integration gives Bengal the benefit of seeing their entire fleet of trucks and trailers on one screen. Dispatchers now have a complete view of tractors, trailers, drivers and loads.
Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated - The integration provides CCBCC with a systematic way to track trailers within their TMWSuite dispatch system. Data is now accessible to their end users giving them the ability to keep a closer eye on their available trailer resources to meet demand.
Matheson Trucking, Inc. - The integration provides Matheson with real-time updates when their trailers move and the ability to track the actual mileage as it accumulates. Operations and maintenance personnel also receive a notification when a trailer is ready for service and the exact location.
"FleetLocate is a unique trailer platform that provides continual, real-time views of an entire trailer fleet," says Scott Vanselous, CMO, TMW Systems. "Through the partnership with FleetLocate, our customers receive valuable operational and reporting capabilities within TMWSuite and TMT Fleet Maintenance software to improve utilization and reduce costs associated with their trailers."
