Palos Verdes, California – Trinium Technologies, the leading provider of enterprise software to the intermodal trucking and container drayage industries, announced the release of GPS enabled in-transit container visibility with its industry leading TMS.
With the growing demands from cargo owners for global supply chain visibility, transportation companies of all modes are being pressured to provide quality in-transit shipment visibility via GPS. Initial demands came from the truckload space and international container shipping and has now reached the container drayage space, where the traditional “black hole of drayage” persists. Trinium’s recent enhancements to its TMS has enabled this in-transit visibility as a service that can be offered by its customers.
Utilizing Trinium’s mobile app, Trinium MC3, container drayage operators can now provide automated GPS enabled in-transit updates on containers moving through out their fleet of employee drivers or owner-operators. “Our customers are seeing increased demand from their shipper, ocean carrier, and 3PL customers for automated GPS enabled visibility. We’ve completed development on this with our TMS and mobile app, enabling our customers to gain a competitive advantage in the market”, said Dennis Lane, Chief Commercial Officer at Trinium Technologies.
Trinium has seen year-over-year double digit growth in adoption of its mobile app, Trinium MC3, as intermodal truckers look to invest in solutions that increase internal productivity and provide a more real-time flow of data to their customers. Enabling GPS in-transit updates that are configurable at the customer level in Trinium-TMS, exemplifies this trend. The company predicts that in-transit visibility could soon be a requirement for doing business with some shippers and 3PL’s, where the container drayage companies will need to provide the visibility service via EDI or APIs.
