We Are FourKites
FourKites was founded in 2014 with a simple idea – build software to modernize information sharing in the $900 Billion (and growing!) logistics industry. A simple idea perhaps. But no small feat to do and do it well.
With a team of 70+ (and growing) inspired professionals, we’re now enabling the exchange of high-quality, real-time data between Shippers, Carriers, and 3rd Party Logistics providers.
And we believe this is just the beginning. We are firmly committed to building a platform, tools, and applications that help companies gain true visibility into their supply chains. Visibility that can be put into real, meaningful action for the mutual benefit of both the supplier and end customers.
This endeavor, we believe, gives us confidence to say – FourKites is supply chain visibility, redefined.
