Trimble and Esri Collaborate to Bring Location-Based Products and Services to the Global Forestry Market

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and REDLANDS, Calif., Feb. 2, 2021—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) and Esri announced today that the companies are collaborating by integrating Esri software into Trimble’s Connected Forest™ solutions, which are used by both forest owners and products companies. The integration adds location intelligence technology designed to transform workflows and provide greater visibility, traceability and efficiency for the forest industry.

An example of the collaboration can be seen in Trimble’s recently released Land Resource Manager (LRM) 4.4, which features significantly enhanced mapping capability powered by Esri’s ArcGIS insights, Dashboards and ArcGIS Online products. In LRM version 4.4 mobile users can access spatial information with user-friendly interfaces that enable even non-GIS professionals to view and use maps more readily in the field.

“Working with Esri to expand and further integrate location intelligence into our Connected Forest solutions enables our customers to create a more coordinated, optimized and flexible supply chain from harvest through delivery,” said Kevin Toohill, general manager of Trimble Forestry. “The extension of access to real-time, location-generated data from the office into the field empowers employees on-site to make real-time, data-driven decisions to increase operational efficiency.

“The Trimble and Esri relationship dates back decades,” said Scot McQueen, Esri commercial forestry account manager. “Today’s announcement represents a commitment to collaboration and supporting the forest industry with spatially-enabled technology products and solutions. We are excited to see this continued commitment to our technology and are expecting a positive impact on the forest industry.”

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 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/.
