With these latest enhancements, data automatically syncs between the platform’s real-time transportation tracking, Appointment Manager and Dynamic Yard® applications to deliver faster, more contextualised multimodal insights that drive ROI across all teams. Some examples of these actionable insights include:

  • Transportation managers can reprioritise schedules in advance based on appointment times displayed alongside the shipment’s corresponding ETA
  • Warehouse leaders can automatically check in and check out freight arriving at a point with geofence tracking, enabling accurate record-keeping of facility operations
  • Supply chain executives can accurately track landed costs for shipments in one single view, including multimodal detention charges, ocean demurrage, transloading and facility dwell
  • Inventory planners have a full view of on-hand and in-transit inventory to better plan production schedules, or outbound cuts to reduce penalties and eliminate expedites
  • Supply chain and warehouse executives can optimise facility schedules based on ocean port of call ETAs to ensure the fastest throughput of ocean containers and minimise truckload traffic

Together, these improvements give users across the enterprise easy access to the critical supply chain information they need to drive faster resolutions, proactively manage exceptions, and provide better reporting to their supply chain partners.

“Today represents a major step toward helping large enterprises leverage supply chain visibility across their business,” said FourKites’ Founder and CEO Mathew Elenjickal. “We have customers with hundreds and thousands of users, so as we continue to drive innovation in the industry, we remain focused on maximising usability and value for our customers. Giving them the ability to see all of their data tightly integrated and automated in one platform, across all modes and geographies, is the best way to ensure ROI.”

FourKites was recently named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platforms, positioned the furthest for its Completeness of Vision. In addition, the company scored the highest for Fortune 500 businesses with complex needs in Gartner’s companion report, the 2022 Gartner® Critical Capabilities for Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platforms. In that analysis, FourKites ranked #1 in three of the five most advanced Use Cases.
