TMW, a Trimble brand, Cleveland, Ohio, announced a new step in its continued relationship with Registry Monitoring Insurance Services (RMIS), Westlake Village, Calif.
RMIS’ compliance management services and technologies will now be integrated into TMW’s TMW.Suite, TMW’s flagship transportation management system (TMS) for asset-based, asset-light and freight brokerage transportation service providers.
TMW clients will be able to monitor carrier insurance information directly from a module within TMW.Suite. The updated integration reflects TMW’s mission to centralize every aspect of the end user’s day-to-day workflow, delivering solutions to its clients’ business challenges in one robust software suite.
RMIS tracks 95% of today’s active motor carriers in the transportation industry, which means TMW.Suite users will have access to the majority of Certificates of Insurance on file for the carriers they are looking to hire. If a certificate for a given trucking company is unavailable, RMIS has the resources to obtain it quickly. And, by entering company-specific regulations into the system, users can ensure that carriers are insured in a way that specifically lines up with their business rules.
TMW also added the operating status field to the Carrier Comprehensive Safety Analysis (CSA) Inquiry process. RMIS will supply the Department of Transportation (DOT) operating status values in this field, and will support the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) operating status from DOT as those changes are published.
When receiving an update from RMIS regarding an Out of Service notification for a carrier, expirations will be logged for the carrier, so they are no longer available in other parts of TMW.Suite to plan loads/trips.
Tabs in the Carrier CSA Profile window are now color coded, as information is returned from RMIS. For example, if a document for the carrier is available through the service, the document tab will now highlight in green, identifying that there is data available for review.
