FourKites announced it would provide real-time supply chain data to Spotos’ European customers.
The partnership can give Spotos’ customers up-to-the-minute predictive estimated times of arrival (ETAs) and real-time status updates for their shipments at any time, anywhere in Europe, whether in transit or at rest. With these advanced insights provided by FourKites, Spotos’ customers can reduce dwell and detention costs while optimising their network as shippers look to manage their costs better.
“Our mission is to revolutionise traditional freight exchange by enabling the best transparency, simplicity and accessibility for small and medium shippers,” said Šarūnas Stanislovėnas, founder and CEO of Spotos. “Now, thanks to FourKites’ predictive insights, we will be able to provide our customers with ETAs that are more accurate and detailed than other available technologies could reliably deliver.”
German-based Spotos offers a digital freight forwarding platform with the highest-level service experience for small and medium-sized (SMB) shippers, regardless of their order volume or frequency.
Spotos will also leverage FourKites’ carrier visibility platform, NIC-Place. This will give its customers access to granular data, including temperature tracking data for high-value transports, such as pharmaceuticals, fresh and frozen products, and electronic equipment throughout all parts of their fleet.
In addition, with its proprietary Data Control Center (DCC), FourKites’ NIC-Place solution can provide a flexible and secure way for carriers to share supply chain data with customers while giving them complete control of their business, their network and their data.
