FourKites Named to 2017 SDCE 100 by Supply & Demand Chain Executive

Real-time freight visibility and orchestration platform celebrated for its leading supply chain efficiency technology


CHICAGO, IL – June 22, 2017 – Supply & Demand Chain Executive has selected FourKites, a company providing real-time tracking and supply chain visibility solutions across transportation modes and digital platforms, as a recipient of an SDCE 100 Award for 2017, an annual listing highlighting 100 great supply chain projects. While SDCE 100 received thousands of submissions, FourKites stood out from its competition because of its innovative approach to modernizing the $800 billion logistics industry.

“In most industries today, speed to deliver and transparency have become critically important, and FourKites’ technology arms end customers with the invaluable insights needed to meet those demands and outpace competition,” said Mathew Elenjickal, founder and CEO of FourKites. “FourKites streamlines communication along the entire supply chain to give management the necessary information to optimize shipping, dock schedules, inventory management and overall decision-making, which in turn positively affects the bottom-line.”

FourKites has altered the expectation of visibility for freight shippers. Visibility was once ‘dots on a map,’ with ETA updates every few hours and many blind spots. Today, FourKites gives customers a 360-degree view of real-time location information and fully actionable data to help customers manage complexities and exceptions in the supply chain. Shippers and third-party logistics providers have access to the same data as their customers to provide an unmatched level transparency and efficiency in the supply chain. In just three years, FourKites has garnered the business of over a dozen Fortune 500 companies, over 30 blue-chip global shippers and eight of the top-30 3PLs.

“Our goal with 2017’s Top 100 is to shine the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the supply chain,” says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The selected projects can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. We congratulate all of our winners for a job well done!”

The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects. These projects can serve as a map for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. These projects show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
