In many industries, the last mile problem is the most difficult problem to crack. This is especially true in the carrier industry, where 91% of the total carriers operate fleets of six vehicles or less. TMW Systems (TMW) solves the last mile problem, and an array of other transportation and business challenges, by consolidating the data of small carrier companies for the benefit of all of their customers.
TMW is now the leading Big Data transportation technology provider and uses Hortonworks to develop business intelligence and Big Data tools that offer valuable business insights to transportation application users. Several thousand customers now rely on TMW’s ERP system to manage up to four million trucks daily. This management includes integrated dispatch, fleet maintenance, fuel optimization, and last mile routing in both cities and on highways. TMW’s specialized product and business intelligence optimization is used by many major corporations and Big 5 companies today.
