Trimble Engage Lane Provides Dwell Time Metrics

for Freight Procurement

LAS VEGAS, NV, Feb 3, 2023 – Trimble announced that its Engage Lane dynamic contract procurement solution now provides the industry’s first availability of average dwell time metrics within a freight bidding workflow. This integration enables carriers and shippers to make better, more-informed freight procurement decisions.

The announcement was made at Manifest 2023.

Powered by the Trimble Transportation Cloud, Trimble’s Connected Locations workflow makes this dwell time data directly available within Engage Lane, providing shippers and carriers with the critical information they need to make more informed bid and contract award decisions.

Prior to Trimble’s development of Connected Locations, there has not been a third-party source capable of providing average dwell time metrics for pick-up and drop-off locations. This lack of information source often results in a disconnect between shippers and carriers, which means drivers often experience unexpected delays while waiting to be loaded or unloaded. By combining anonymous live and historical GPS data streams with its millions of geofenced locations, Trimble is bridging the gap to address this disconnect between shippers and carriers, providing transparency around facility dwell times.

Engage Lane is the first freight procurement solution to provide transparency into dwell time metrics directly within the bid workflow, doing so by combining Trimble’s unique geolocation data and procurement capabilities.

“More than 90 percent of shippers and carriers agree that procurement based on rates that are locked in over a set period of time are better for their business,” said Kelly Williams, product manager, Trimble’s Engage Lane. “The average dwell time metrics that are now available in Engage Lane, through the Trimble Transportation Cloud, allow carriers to make more accurate bids, leading to greater contract stability—and ultimately further strengthening the relationship between shippers and carriers.”

The integration of dwell time metrics into Engage Lane for facilities via the Connected Locations workflow, further strengthens Trimble’s position as a leading provider of transportation industry data.

Solibri Inside Available for BIM Professionals

MUNICH, Germany and HELSINKI, Finland, Feb 3, 2023 – The Nemetschek Group, a leading global provider of digital solutions for the AEC/O and media industries, announced the availability of Solibri Inside. The new automated rule-based BIM checking model is now part of its design software solutions Allplan, Graphisoft Archicad and Vectorworks.

“This cloud-based service offering heralds a new era of quality assurance in construction projects,” says Viktor Várkonyi, chief division officer for the Planning & Design Division and member of the Executive Board at the Nemetschek Group. “With the integrated design process, designers and architects can check their models any time they want, in real time, with one click, significantly elevating their productivity and eliminating errors that would have been costly as well as time- and resource-intense.”

With Solibri Inside, the Nemetschek Group is providing an integrated quality assurance service within the design process – in all of their authoring tools. As of today, all three brands are live with Solibri Inside, which will help customers in avoiding constant rework, keeping their project schedules, and accelerating project timelines. BIM professionals worldwide can now access and benefit from this solution.

Solibri Inside ensures the rapid and easy adoption for model checking, as it works as a native feature that can be used within the authoring tool and can run checks within a SaaS based environment as and when the designer wishes. No longer does the designer need to export the model and open other software to perform basic model checking but can be easily accessed from a simple palette like functionality in the UI of the authoring tool. Solibri Inside ensures that every model can be checked upfront before sharing within the workflow to other team members. The integrated quality checking is a time saver for the designer, ensuring the details are right, before submitting the BIM to the coordination workflow.

Ville Kyytsönen, Solibri CEO, stated, “Making models correct and information rich is the very core of good digital design workflows. Our ambition is to embed quality into the construction process, and we do that by going direct to the start of the process – the designer. Their models are now enriched and improved from the very start. We then offer others within the workflow the ability to benefit from BIM quality with our total solution offering. It is great to see Nemetschek Group continue to integrate its solutions, put the shared customer first and lead with best practices”.

Solibri Inside was initially introduced in November 2022 and is now accessible to thousands of BIM professionals working with the authoring tools of the Nemetschek Group. This first release of Solibri Inside allows checking of Door & Window clearances and the supporting Level of Information (LOI). The service comes as a standard free package within Graphisoft Archicad, Allplan and Vectorworks. The Premium paid package gives access to additional features.
