In 1978, Charlie Trimble and two others from Hewlett-Packard founded Trimble above the old Los Altos theatre in Silicon Valley. From its start, Trimble focused on developing innovative positioning and navigation products. Initially, the fledgling company based its products on LORAN technology, a ground-based navigation, location and timing system in U.S. coastal waters, and focused its products on the marine navigation market. Then as the Global Positioning System (GPS) was being developed, Charlie and the other founders’ sought to develop the immature GPS technology that Trimble had purchased from Hewlett-Packard.
Today, Trimble engineers worldwide are working on cutting-edge positioning applications that no one could even imagine just a few years ago. With more than 500 products, Trimble continues to lead the way in developing position-centric solutions to address some of the world’s most complex challenges. Trimble technology can be found in consumer and commercial vehicles, construction equipment, farm machinery, computers, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and more. Innovative applications include dispatching and managing fleets, surveying and building roads, monitoring and mapping earthquake damage, recording and synchronizing international financial transactions, and improving the efficiency of wireless communications networks. Trimble is changing the way work is done by linking positioning to productivity.

Simon Rush from Trimble discusses the SOLAS agreement, and it's effect on container weighing: There are many technologies available to port operations to achieve compliance with the new SOLAS amendment, including weighbridges and weighing systems for ship to shore container cranes, mobile harbour cranes, RTGs, straddle carriers, reach stackers and container handling fork lift trucks. Each of these options has pros and cons that will impact port operations workflow. Ports should consider the following criteria when considering options.
On June 19, the cruise liner Queen Mary II visited the Scottish Highlands, berthing at Invergordon on the Cromarty Firth. The week running up to the arrival of the QM2 was a time of excited anticipation by the townsfolk and fevered activity by the port authority. At 345m long, towering 60m above the waves and drawing 10m of water, the QM2 is the largest liner ever to sail the seas.
