McCarthy Transport to Implement Trimble Forestry’s WSX Service for Log Transportation Dispatch

McCarthy Transport, an innovative log transportation leader in New Zealand’s Lower North Island, has selected Trimble Forestry’s WSX, a specialized log supply plan execution and dispatch system that is part of Trimble’s Connected Forest™ CFLogistics portfolio.

WSX is designed specifically to manage the execution of weekly log supply plans and provide stakeholders with the key information necessary for responsive scheduling in a dynamic log supply chain. Trimble Forestry has over 20 years of experience providing Log Supply solutions designed to maximise log harvest and haulage productivity and support the woodflow, harvesting, loading, transport and delivery of logs.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with McCarthy Transport, and look forward to helping the company increase productivity across their forestry operations and enhance their service and delivery performance to their customers, with the implementation of our state-of-the-art WSX solution”, said David Joll, the general manager of Trimble Forestry’s managed logistics business.

“Trimble’s WSX cloud-hosted solution incorporates harvest production, log inventory monitoring and in-cab mobile application that supports the electronic load-docket solution; these services are critical in forestry operations because the visibility and reliability of supply is a major challenge. The forestry environment is typified by remote sites, rugged conditions and a highly uncertain production process,” added Joll. “WSX is unique in its ability to provide the visibility required to manage log supply and distribution in diverse and difficult environments.”

Trimble Forestry Announces Integration of LIMS and CFX

Increased Supply Chain Efficiency and Profitability With CFX-enabled 

 Data Visibility, Mobile Ticketing, and Timber Security

Trimble Forestry announced today that its widely used Log Information Management System (LIMS) now integrates seamlessly with the Connected Forest™ Xchange (CFX). The integration allows load ticket information from LIMS to sync to the cloud-based CFX portal, which can be accessed from any device, any place.  

With CFX’s flexibility, easy-to-view dashboards, and mobile accessibility, key operational data, such as electronic tickets, fiber source GPS coordinates, and detailed supply chain records can also be shared in near real-time, at the company’s discretion, with supply chain partners, such as harvesters, haulers, and scale sites.

“The level of data sharing enabled by our LIMS/CFX integration is key to increasing efficiency within forestry supply chains,” said Kevin Toohill, General Manager of Trimble Forestry. “Visibility and shared data increases timber security and facilitates real-time, data-based decision-making, as well as easier records reconciliation and faster payments.”

LIMS/CFX users can add electronic load ticketing using a mobile device with an added mobile subscription.  The CFX mobile subscription allows haulers and scale site operators to use reference data, such as source, destination, and species, synced from LIMS/CFX. The synched drop-down menus help reduce errors, greatly increase timber security and accountability, and make it much easier and faster to reconcile load tickets exchanged between harvest and delivery. The higher fidelity of tracking loads from forest to delivery allows companies to better support certification requirements. Every load that leaves the woods can be reconciled to a weight scale load coming in the gate.  

“Today’s announcement further builds on our Connected Forest™ strategy to improve workflows and access to data within organizations and between trading partners throughout the forestry supply chain,” added Toohill.

To request a demonstration or learn more about the LIMS/CFX integration, email forestrysales@trimble.com or call Trimble Forestry sales at 888-443-4241 in North America. Trimble Forestry has sales offices around the world.  To find a local contact number outside of North America, please visit https://forestry.trimble.com/contact-us/.

Trimble Forestry Announces New Version of Its Popular Land Resource Manager (LRM) Platform

                                                               LRM 4.4 Extends Use to the Field and 

                                                         Leverages Powerful new Esri Mapping Tools

Today’s complex issues of managing forest require managers to have access to key data whether in the office, at home, in the field, or between job sites, and whether they are using their desktop computer, laptop, iPad, or smartphone. As part of a commitment to ‘Deliver the Connected Forest’, Trimble Forestry has reimagined its popular Land Resource Manager (LRM) software to make it accessible any place, on any device, with upgraded tools to access data and maps, query, edit, print, and export reports for both staff and external parties. 

LRM 4.4 also represents a significant upgrade in spatial technology. Powered by Esri, LRM 4.4 delivers advanced GIS web-based capabilities, including the ability to perform analytics using ArcGIS Insights or Dashboards and to publish or share maps using ArcGIS Online. User-friendly interfaces and the convenience of web access make LRM available in the field or office by business users and experts. 

“The ability to access LRM from any mobile device, particularly its newer, more powerful mapping functions, makes it a valued solution for forestry operations throughout the world,” said Kevin Toohill, general manager of Trimble Forestry. 

LRM 4.4 is built on a cloud-forward architecture, which allows users to migrate to either private- or public-hosting environments. This technology can facilitate the management of complex regulatory processes, such as the application of herbicides and pesticides. “The platform can be used, for example, to make public announcements to neighbors about planned activities, in a timely manner, and with the use of precise maps,” added Toohill.  

Existing customers can upgrade to LRM 4.4 without an extensive migration process. The software uses current configuration settings on the web and mobile platforms, making it easy to gain access to the new features. It’s also simple to add additional users since the existing settings are available automatically.  All existing customers can download LRM 4.4 today. Detailed release notes and download links are available within the “What’s New” section of LRM.  For additional support or questions, please email  LRMsupport@trimble.com or call 1-888-443-4241.

To learn more about LRM 4.4, visit forestry.trimble.com or call 1-888-443-4241 to request a demonstration. 

About LRM:  

Land Resource Manager (LRM) is a configurable and spatially-enabled platform that manages both land and forest assets and activities. LRM can be deployed as a desktop, web, or mobile application and leverages the power of ESRI technology.
