Trimble announced a tech deal with Procter & Gamble to enhance how shippers and carriers partner during the transportation procurement process.
This initiative will shape the development of a transportation procurement collaboration platform from Trimble that will complement its existing set of supply chain-focused solutions.
“This effort extends Trimble’s commitment to create solutions that enable all stakeholders to work together more efficiently and effectively within a connected transportation supply chain,” James Langley, Senior Vice President, Trimble Transportation, said.
Procter & Gamble will inform the creation of a dynamic platform with a focus on optimizing the procurement of transportation capacity, creating closer shipper and carrier relationships and helping each find the right partners. The platform will also expedite the contracting and onboarding process to increase the velocity of business transactions while enabling more cost-effective movement of freight.
“This collaboration empowers us to pair P&G’s industry intelligence with Trimble’s deep experience in transportation technology,” said Michelle Eggers, Vice President, Global Logistics Purchases, Procter & Gamble.
