  • Maintain Quality Standards: Live temperature tracking and alerts help eliminate the risk of product spoilage in transit.
  • Improve Customer Satisfaction: Achieve tighter on-time delivery dates and provide secure, live-tracking dashboards for customers.
  • Reduce Transportation Costs: Real-time, in-transit visibility with predictive ETAs allows for proactive exception management, as opposed to costly expediting.

How Pharma Leaders Manage Disruption

Pharmaceutical supply chain leaders recognize the value that end-to-end visibility, seamless collaboration and accurate data bring to their pharma transportation operations.

“It all goes back to providing an end-to-end solution, data-driven insights and delivering on our commitments no matter what is thrown our way, whether it’s a winter storm, COVID-19 or some other event. Our partnership with FourKites is a critical building block for making these things happen and the investment is proving to be more powerful than we originally expected.”
Joshua Dolan, Vice President, Global Logistics at Cardinal Health

FourKites’ customer 3M states“There’s data democratization, where you can see stuff that is happening much faster on a daily basis. There’s much more transparency on issues we are facing, and the team is going in eyes wide open and trying to find solutions as quickly as we can.”
