The addition of ALK is expected to extend Trimble’s Transportation and Logistics product portfolio, including TMW Systems’ transportation management solutions, PeopleNet’s integrated onboard computing and mobile communications systems and GEOTrac’s fleet management and worker safety solutions for the oil and gas industry. Financial terms were not disclosed.
ALK software products include CoPilot Live, which offers onboard GPS navigation for professional drivers; and PC*MILER, a truck-specific mileage solution recognised as an industry standard for logistics, manufacturing, government and transportation operations. ALK products are sold worldwide with international map data.
