Availability Manager is a service that enables Trinium-TMS or third party applications to interface with pier and rail availability web sites to track and trace containers and trailers
Once container numbers are in Trinium, the system automatically tracks and traces the containers with no intervention from the end user. Tracking data is pulled back into Trinium on set intervals automating the availability/notification process. Availability Manager will enable companies to improve efficiencies in managing availability/notifications, reduce administrative costs, and improve data accuracy.
Availability Manager is also available as a web service and can be integrated with any third party or homegrown trucking system. Trucking companies are using Availability Manager today, integrated with their own trucking system.
The value proposition is the same, seamless data flow from the various rail and pier web sites into our customer's system.
Trinium has already developed dozens of interfaces with commonly used pier and rail web sites.
"Availability Manager has enabled us to gain efficiencies in customer service and dispatch. Our staff no longer has to type containers or cut and paste containers from Trinium into various web sites. We enter the container data one time into Trinium and the availability process is automated from there on out," said Steve Gardner, Business Unit Manager, PCC Logistics/Direct Delivery.
