TMW Systems announced that Hornady Transportation has purchased IDSC TripAlert. Engineered to work seamlessly with legacy systems and technology infrastructures, IDSC TripAlert will interface with Hornady’s existing technology, which includes TruckMate enterprise transportation software.
IDSC TripAlert provides total visibility of assets and best-in-class exception and event management, the company says, and it also increases driver time at home without impacting profit potential. IDSC TripAlert automatically identifies the locations and times when two power units will be feasible to swap load assignments, according to TMW; the software recognizes swap opportunities to improve utilization and on-time performance. IDSC TripAlert also provides built-in capabilities to identify candidates for in-transit swaps, leveraging the data to maximize driver and equipment utilization, prevent service failures and increase driver time at home, the company says.
In 2007, TMW acquired Integrated Decision Support Corp. (IDSC) and its decision support software offerings, including IDSC Netwise, IDSC MatchAdvice and IDSC ExpertFuel.
