TMW Systems, a provider of enterprise software to transportation and logistics companies, announced a new partnership and integration with Spireon. Through the integration, for-hire carriers and private fleets can have detailed information on trailer location, capacity and operations of their trailer fleet to improve utilization and compliance.
The integration is between Spireon’s FleetLocate and TMW Systems’ TMW Suite and TMT Fleet Maintenance systems. The TMWSuite integration captures GPS position information from the trailer, whether tethered or not, for visibility to all trailers to support dispatch operations.
The TMT Fleet Maintenance integration captures GPS position information and mileage to provide automatic scheduling of preventive maintenance work based on actual miles traveled. The software automatically alerts the maintenance department when a trailer requiring repairs or maintenance enters the yard.
Spireon says its FleetLocate 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.
Some mutual customers of Spireon and TMW Systems have already begun using the integrated systems:
- 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.
