Schneider selects FourKites to provide real-time freight visibility


Schneider has selected FourKites to provide real-time freight visibility for its non-asset based Supply Chain Management division. Through this integration, Schneider customers are able to track any load within Schneider’s transportation management system (TMS).

“With the emergence of e-commerce, coupled with today’s lean transportation networks, shippers struggle with visibility to their shipments,” said Mike Kukiela, vice president and general manager of Schneider’s Supply Chain Management service. “Integrating FourKites enhanced visibility capabilities within our leading supply chain technology platform allows customers to instantly know where their shipment is within their network.”

The FourKites integration provides Schneider’s logistics teams with the ability to provide continuous updates and divert critical loads. Enhanced visibility of shipments and Schneider’s ability to provide network business intelligence also delivers continuous cost savings to protect transportation budgets.

“Schneider has been at the forefront of technology disruption in the trucking industry, starting with the adoption of satellite tracking back in the 1970s. We are thrilled to help deliver the industry’s most accurate multimodal tracking and predictive analytics platform to Schneider’s non-asset-based customers across a wide range of verticals,” said Matt Elenjickal, CEO of FourKites. “Using our TMS-agnostic network of more than 4 million GPS-connected assets, we are uniquely positioned to provide value to Schneider’s customers and optimize end-to-end supply chain visibility.”

Schneider will continue to monitor its asset-based divisions, which include Regional and Long-Haul Truckload, Expedited, Dedicated, Bulk, Intermodal and Final Mile, through its proprietary truck, trailer and container technology.
