FourKites continues unprecedented momentum in Europe, seeing 148% year-over-year growth

“Over the last year, we’ve invested heavily in Europe — in our team, our partners, our products and our customers. Today’s complex supply chains require global, end-to-end visibility, and the region is vital to global trade,” says FourKites CEO and founder, Mathew Elenjickal. “We’re seeing that investment reflected by our accelerated growth metrics over the last year.”

Some of FourKites’ most recent customer additions include Barilla Group, Beyond Meat, Cardinal Health, Haworth, LyondellBasell, McCain Foods, Roehm, Rove Concepts and Yamaha Motors.

Local investment pays off

In January 2022, FourKites acquired German supply chain visibility provider NIC-place, the market leader in supply chain visibility software solutions specifically designed for transport companies, carriers and logistics service providers. The acquisition created the largest multimodal carrier network in Europe, serving global shippers with the most comprehensive end-to-end global supply chain visibility platform.

In addition, over the last few months, FourKites has been investing in its local teams with seasoned industry veterans to build the infrastructure needed to support its growing European network. Recent senior-level hires include Katja van Trigt, Senior Director Talent & Development EMEA, who comes to FourKites with an enviable record having worked at American Express, Bausch & Lomb and Infoblox.

Jeroen Peijnenburg, Enterprise Account Director, Southern Europe, will lead FourKites’ supply chain visibility operations across the region. He has worked for many years in leadership positions within global, asset-owning carriers and logistics service providers.

Nicu Ciontea, Carrier Manager, based in Amsterdam, will increase carrier support across Europe. Until recently, Nicu led the carrier sales team at CH Robinson in Amsterdam.

Nicholas Mellings, Enterprise Account Director EMEA will lead FourKites’ UK Sales team. Nicholas brings with him 30 years of experience in the transport and logistics industry, the last five of which were spent working for Transporeon.

New offices

FourKites has also been growing its European presence with new offices. The company has opened a larger European headquarters in Amsterdam; a new office in Munich serving the pivotal German market; and an increased presence in Poland to serve the Eastern European carrier market.

“To support our growing network of European shippers and carriers, we have taken the steps necessary to ensure that we have a strong local presence, with highly specialised knowledge of the European market,” says Elenjickal. Elenjickal himself is currently touring in Europe, visiting the new offices, meeting face to face with customers, and personally welcoming FourKites’ new supply chain experts brought onboard to fuel organic growth.

“Europe is rapidly seizing the benefits of supply chain visibility,” he adds. “European businesses are finding that FourKites’ approach is a natural fit with their current needs, and that synergy is what’s creating more transparency, collaboration and resilience in global supply chains.”

“Digitisation is an important step in Dow’s journey toward the implementation of an end-to-end supply chain visibility strategy,” says Kevin Nielen, Logistics Leader, Dow Chemical. “Our strategic partnership with FourKites enables us to digitise and move away from a manual way of working to an integrated technology platform workflow.”

Plural, a new investment platform started by the founders and backers of Europe’s most significant tech companies, has unveiled today a €250m early stage venture fund (Plural Platform SCSp RAIF, “Plural”) to back the next generation of founders with global ambitions.
