FourKites announced a platform upgrade that enables organizations to leverage supply chain visibility data across their enterprise in a single platform.
With these latest enhancements, data automatically syncs between the platform’s real-time transportation tracking, Appointment Manager and Dynamic Yard applications to deliver more contextualized multimodal insights that drive ROI across all teams.
Transportation managers can reprioritize schedules based on appointment times displayed alongside the shipment’s corresponding ETA. Warehouse leaders can automatically check-in and out freight arriving at a point with geofence tracking, enabling accurate record-keeping of facility operations. Supply chain executives can track shipments’ landed costs in one 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. In addition, supply chain and warehouse executives can optimize facility schedules based on ocean port of call ETAs to ensure the fastest throughput of ocean containers and minimize truckload traffic.
“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 maximizing 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.”
