Integration Improves Order Workflow, Reporting and Billing

“This integration gives facilities the option to work with carriers through TruckMate, no matter which 3PL Central offering they are using,” said Harald Fritz, vice president, TMW’s TruckMate.

TMW Systems, a Trimble brand and leading provider of software, business intelligence and related solutions to the North American transportation industry, announced the integration of its TruckMate Transportation Management System (TMS) solution with 3PL Central. Through an API, warehouse operators and carriers can now seamlessly integrate 3PL Central’s cloud-based Warehouse Management System (WMS), 3PL Warehouse Manager, with TruckMate to help streamline workflows, reduce costs and maximize overall productivity.

The new integration enables warehouse operators to handle multiple, high-volume orders and charges via a single WMS solution for multiple carriers. The result is a complete, end-to-end solution from the warehouse to the carrier that can be implemented regardless of where the shipment order originated.

“This integration gives facilities the option to work with carriers through TruckMate, no matter which 3PL Central offering they are using,” said Harald Fritz, vice president, TMW’s TruckMate. “There is no more need to use electronic data interchange (EDI), import files or middleware to work with carriers. This API provides an end-to-end solution that greatly streamlines the overall operation.”

An industry leader, 3PL Central is a popular cloud-based WMS available in the 3PL and Warehousing marketplace. The company’s software solutions have grown exponentially, providing enterprise-class WMS functionality to a range of warehouse operations who need a nimble SaaS WMS for inventory management, connectivity, flexibility and compliance for warehouses operating in increasingly complex and competitive environments.

“We are very excited to integrate 3PL Warehouse Manager with TruckMate, making it easier for our joint customers to better manage workflows from beginning to end,” said John Watkins, President, 3PL Central. “We believe the relationship will bring productivity tools from 3PL Central and TMW Systems together to improve capabilities for our customers throughout the supply chain.”

The TruckMate and 3PL Central API capabilities give warehouse management operators the ability to perform a number of tasks, including:

  • Create new orders when goods are ready to ship to or from the warehouse, complete with shipping details and accessorial charges.
  • Subsequently update those orders to track changes and request actions from the user.
  • Inquire about other specific order information.
  • Auto calculate pallets, weight, dimensions, and freight classifications to eliminate manual entry and reduce errors.

“With our integration of 3PL Central’s cloud-based solutions, we can offer a powerful solution for warehouse management for any size customer,” Fritz said. “Whether they deal in refrigerated, frozen or dry goods, that customer’s warehouse management is now seamless and optimized for all sizes and types of transported goods.”

TMW Systems will be demonstrating the integration at its 2018 in.sight user conference + expo. Themed “in.novation, in.spired.” this year’s event will be held in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center from September 9-12.
