Global logistics solutions group WiseTech Global today announced the acquisition of Trinium Technologies, a leading provider of intermodal trucking transportation management systems (TMS) in the United States and Canada.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Trinium offers a complete enterprise TMS for the efficient movement of sea freight containers between port terminals, inland rail terminals, container yards and warehouses. Trinium’s leading product, Trinium-TMS, enables companies to completely automate their processes from order receipt, through customer service, dispatch operations, billing and driver settlements. Trinium also provides container tracking functionality through its integration with dozens of marine terminal and rail systems throughout the United States and Canada.

Trinium currently services more than 185 trucking customers, including Horizon Freight System, NFI Industries, California Cartage Companies, ContainerPort Group, Schneider Logistics Transportation and The Pasha Group.

“Trinium enables specialized road transport for the first and last-mile container movement required on every international shipment, which is a highly specialized transport process distinct from general road freight. With its valuable experience in containerized road transport, extensive port connections, well-regarded leadership team, and highly scalable, asset-based enterprise solution, Trinium is an important further addition to our cargo chain ecosystem," says WiseTech Global founder and CEO Richard White. "Together we will leverage our global reach and powerful development capacity to scale up our broader TMS offering globally, building out the ecosystem further, and providing ever more productive and integrated solutions to customers across the supply chain.”  

Remaining under the leadership of long-time managing director Michael Thomas, with chief technology officer Barry Assadi and vice president of sales and marketing Dennis Lane, Trinium will continue to deliver innovative solutions directly to customers across the United States and Canada, with potential to serve the 7,000 logistics providers across the world who utilize WiseTech’s integrated supply chain execution solutions, including its flagship, CargoWise One.  

“Trinium has been providing quality enterprise solutions for intermodal truckers for 17 years, assisting customers in driving real productivity improvements in their operations. Joining the WiseTech Global group will help us take our TMS into markets adjacent to trucking as well as across the globe. With WiseTech, we have an opportunity to innovate and automate at a faster pace and future-proof our applications. This is an important next step for us and our valuable customers," Thomas adds.  

Across 130 countries, CargoWise One enables logistics service providers to execute highly complex transactions in areas such as freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping and tracking.
