After two and a half years of trading sideways, Trimble ($TRMB) broke out to new all-time highs. They've gained 27% YTD vs. 8% for the S&P 500.
What they do:
They provide products and services that connect the digital and physical worlds. They operate across various industries: agriculture, architecture, civil engineering, survey, construction, geospatial, government, natural resources, transportation, and utilities.
For example, they provide back-office software, truck telematics, digital mapping, and freight visibility for the trucking industry.
In January, they acquired Kuebix. Kuebix helps shippers with supply chains of all sizes and complexities and connects them directly to their carriers for the pricing, service levels, and visibility they need to run their businesses.
The acquisition enables Trimble to mesh its private fleet and commercial carrier network, comprised of more than 1.3 million North America-based commercial trucks, with Kuebix’s community of more than 21,000 shipping companies. This combo provides a powerful new platform for planning, executing, and freight demand capacity-matching.
