FourKites and RCS Logistics announced a partnership to provide RCS customers with a one-stop shop for end-to-end visibility into their shipments across the ocean, air, drayage, intermodal and over-the-road (OTR). Leveraging FourKites’ industry-leading real-time supply chain data, RCS’s internal teams and customers are benefiting from automated, real-time visibility into the status and location of shipments in transit and at rest worldwide.
“FourKites’ supply chain visibility platform is a game-changer for RCS Logistics,” said Brian Heaney, President at RCS Logistics. “By providing comprehensive end-to-end visibility data, the industry’s most accurate predictive ETAs and real-time status into shipments, our internal teams are much more efficient and able to focus on higher-value services, while our customers and partners receive a holistic view of their supply chain and shipments. It’s a modern, world-class experience that every stakeholder — large and small — can now enjoy.”
Since deploying the FourKites platform — including the company’s Dynamic Ocean® solution — in Q3 2022 to track ocean, drayage and OTR shipments, RCS has achieved 7x growth in its domestic transport services, while its ocean freight business has grown 12x.
“We are thrilled to partner with a leader like RCS Logistics, which shares our vision for automated, interconnected and collaborative digital global supply chains, end to end,” said Brad Klaus, Group Vice President of International Solutions, at FourKites. “Our work together illustrates how we integrate across the supply chain ecosystem to modernize operations and provide a superior customer experience in the process.”
Building on its success with ocean, drayage and OTR shipment visibility, the two companies are now working to bring greater visibility to RCS Logistics’ door-to-door international air freight forwarding solutions.
