California-based Trimble is working with Intelligent Audit, a freight audit and transportation company, to integrate their services to provide real-time visibility and audit analytics tools for the supply chain.
 
The collaboration lets the two companies solve some of the most significant problems for shippers today. Users can access visibility and tracking through Trimble's supply chain offering and audit and spend analytics through Intelligent Audit.
 
In addition, Intelligent Audit and Trimble's data sharing will let both companies enhance their products for users in the transportation and logistics industry.
 
"Customers of both companies will benefit from this new integration for the supply chain," said Joe DeBoth, vice president of Trimble Transportation Visibility. "Users have access to improved reporting and analytics with the added freight visibility and tracking abilities through the audit process."
 
Trimble's Visibility products provide supply chain organisations with visibility into operations featuring a secure, multimodal, real-time information platform. Its features include transportation management system integrations, dynamic ETAs, proactive weather and risk alerts, rich data down to the SKU level, temperature control tracking, management and final kilometre functionalities, workflow automation, and a user-friendly interface.
 
"We were the first company to automate the audit and recovery process in transportation," said Hannah Testani, chief operating officer at New Jersey-based Intelligent Audit. "Each year since our inception, we've worked hard to continuously improve our product. Working with Trimble to tap valuable supply chain data will further advance the audit process and is another step in the evolution to continually reduce transportation costs, improve customer experience and enhance visibility throughout the supply chain."
 
Founded in 1996, Intelligent Audit specialises in freight audit and payment, business intelligence analytics, and transportation spend optimisation. With more than 2500 clients representing more than $9bn in aggregate transportation spend across all modes and geographies, Intelligent Audit says it provides insights that help customers ship smarter.
 
Trimble Transportation is multi-modal and provides services for the long-haul trucking, field service management, rail and construction logistics industries to create a fully integrated supply chain. In trucking, Trimble provides enterprise and mobility services focused on business intelligence and data analytics; safety and regulatory compliance; navigation and routing; freight brokerage; supply chain visibility and final kilometre; transportation management and fleet maintenance.
