XRS Corp. (formerly Xata Corporation) announced its Turnpike fleet management software has been integrated with TMWSuite from TMW Systems.
The move, said XRS, will drive efficiency, productivity and convenience for both drivers and fleet managers by automating key functions throughout the load planning and back-end processes.
The Turnpike integration with TMWSuite provides a cost-effective solution that uniquely combines both driver and fleet management tools in one, said XRS. The integration provides fleets all the functions and services for the end-to-end transportation process, and is scalable for a wide range of customers, from regional brokers and 3PLs to national carriers with fleets ranging from 50 to 15,000.
“Our relationship with TMW Systems is very important, and we look forward to continue working with them across their various products serving the transportation industry to bring customers more cost-effective integrated solutions,” said Kirsten Lester, XRS senior integration program manager.
According to Scott Vanselous, chief marketing officer at TMW Systems, “Our integration with the XRS Turnpike offering presents another affordable option for our TMWSuite customers. We are committed to provide our customers out-of-the-box integrations to leading mobile communication systems.”
"We originally purchased the Turnpike product several years ago to manage driver logs, hours of service and fuel tax information for our private fleet. Now as a standalone brokerage and for-hire trucking company, we have implemented TMWSuite to manage all aspects of our brokerage and dispatch operations," said Jason Meares, manager of transportation systems with Red Classic Transit. "By integrating Turnpike data into TMWSuite, we provide a streamlined solution for our dispatchers, referencing hours of service and tractor position information, saving them up to 30 minutes per day in planning, dispatching and order updates. In addition, the integration allows us to collect and report more data for each order with the level of accuracy our customers demand."

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
