Trimble TMS

Transportation management software for freight forwarders

About Trimble TMS

Trimble TMS is a transportation management software designed to help businesses of all sizes handle billing, shipment planning, and fleet scheduling, among other administrative processes on a centralized platform. Freight forwarders can leverage prescriptive, predictive, and automated analytics to streamline data-driven decisions across the organization.

Trimble TMS allows enterprises to manage financial processing and gain real-time visibility into fleet's locations, drivers' activities, or other transportation operations. Supervisors can handle multi-stop or multi-order deliveries and receive alerts about potential issues impacting routes, delivery, and freight workflows. Administrators can also assign assets and drivers to loads, and track cargo claims' statuses, to-do tasks, and gross reserves in the form of graphs or charts on a risk management dashboard.

Trimble TMS lets organizations analyze equipment information including drivers' hours of service (HOS), costs, distance covered, and load availability for current or future scenarios to enhance customer satisfaction rates. Other features include recurring orders scheduling, data visualization, shipping execution, and freight management.

Key benefits of Trimble TMS

Tools are designed to manage the needs of for-hire, truckload, less-than-truckload, Intermodal, private, brokerage, fuel, bulk, auto and other types of operations. Additional, functionality is available and can be integrated on a needs basis.

As a transportation specialist and Fleet Manager, TMW Systems is my lifeline. I would not have a job without it.

Pros

Easy user interface, straight forward, no bugs or glitches, TMW does everything I need it to to complete my work.

Cons

There is not anything that I would recommend to improve. TMW Systems has been a reliable software program for the 3+ years that I have used it.

Truckmate Dispatch

Reviewed on 2018/12/03

Pros

I like that it is easy to track not only the trailers but drivers as well. Easy to set up routing and locations. It is easy to move around from dispatch to payroll and most of the time it is a quick fix when someone gets button happy. We have the option to send the loads directly to the driver and the system will track there movements, but we found it easier to manually move our OTR drivers.
During the time of our transition from 2012 version to 2018 the problems we have encountered have been quickly fixed by the Trimble groups support team.

Cons

No back button when the person who is manually moving the drivers and equipment gets a little to quick on the buttons. We updated our system and did some testing before going live and some of the hiccups we caught and thought were fixed carried over to the live version. We are a Intermodal trucking company and our original version from 2012 had custom moves that are not able to brought up to 2018.

Basic TMS system, but crashes so often and has limited technology. Our company is getting rid of TMW soon and getting a new TMS system.

Pros

Allows you to do most functions needed for brokering a load. Very basic and easy to understand the basic uses of Dispatch, Order Entry and File Maintenance.

Cons

Crashes constantly and kicks you out completely, almost daily. There are constant issues with sending documents or retrieving data like Lane History.
