THE PROBLEM

Trimac is a bulk transportation company headquartered in Calgary, AB, and Houston, TX, that operates across Canada and the continental US with a diverse fleet of tractors, trailers, customers, and drivers. Due to a vast operating geography, dispatch teams manage a complex set of data points. Gathering real-time data from multiple external and internal sources (such as road conditions, traffic, and weather, layering those data over internal operational systems such as IoT and telematics was becoming unmanageable.

To alleviate the burden on dispatchers, Trimac decided to gather relevant data points to suggest operational improvements through AWS’s public cloud offering. A key missing piece was who was going to act on these insights— specifically, which dispatcher would be best to react to the insight engines were churning out.

THE GOAL: Create a web application and give dispatchers a configurable and personalized dashboard that presented timely insights and a reliable source of decision-making support.
