End-to-End Visibility Across the Entire Manufacturing Supply Chain

FourKites redefines supply chain management for manufacturers by providing comprehensive visibility across global logistics networks. This solution integrates seamlessly with both managed and vendor-managed inbound freight, offering predictive ETAs and real-time status updates for shipments on the road and in the yard. With no need for workarounds or dealing with siloed systems, manufacturers can achieve smooth, collaborative operations.

The platform utilizes powerful machine learning algorithms to analyze data from over one million tracked loads per day, factoring in real-time weather, traffic, and 150+ other variables to deliver the most accurate ETAs. This enables manufacturers to avoid production line downtimes, optimize dock utilization, and reduce detention charges effectively. Additionally, FourKites ensures comprehensive multimodal freight tracking through a single-pane-of-glass view, enhancing operational transparency and facilitating better material planning.
