To qualify for the PCL, carriers must demonstrate an ability to provide high-quality, consistent and accurate data on the vast majority of their shipments, thereby enabling their shipper customers and other ecosystem partners to streamline operations, increase the speed of shipping dock turn times, reduce inventory levels and optimise labour costs.

In the first half of 2022, 685 carriers were named to the PCL, which included an 8% increase for carriers based in Europe. These Premier Carriers demonstrated a significantly higher tracking percentage, on average, versus non-PCL carriers. Over the last six months, carriers who qualified for the Premier Carrier List tracked an average of 92.6% of their over-the-road shipments with real-time visibility, while non-PCL carriers tracked only 74.3% of their shipments.

“We partnered with FourKites because we wanted to grow our business,” says Vladas Stončius, CCO, Vlantana. “Increasingly, suppliers expect carriers to provide real-time data on all shipments. Thanks to FourKites, we’re able to do that efficiently and consistently, which has enabled us to win bigger customers and boost our margins.”

Notably, Premier Carriers witnessed higher growth rates than their non-PCL counterparts. In Europe, from H2 2021 to H1 2022, Premier Carriers experienced shipment volume growth of 9%, compared to non-PCL carriers in the region, who saw shipment volume contract 2%.

“Qualifying for FourKites’ Premier Carrier List is an increasingly important distinction for carriers, brokers and 3PLs who need to stand out in an increasingly competitive and volatile market,” said Jason Eversole, Vice President, Carrier Operations & Strategy, FourKites. “We’re pleased to see continued growth in the total number of Premier Carriers, and equally pleased to see the clear business benefits they are experiencing as a result of their visibility-related excellence.”

The Premier Carrier List is available here, where users can access and search the list according to carrier capabilities, transportation modes, geographies serviced and other relevant criteria.
