Paper producers use FourKites to stay agile and satisfy customer expectations


Consumer Demands Are Driving Change in Paper  Food Distribution

As with many industries today, speed and transparency are becoming critically important to the paper industry.  Speed to produce and speed to deliver is driving the optimization of the paper industry.

Part of increasing the speed involves making sure that all the raw materials and supplies needed are available.  With many factories switching over to just-in-time inventory management, it is key to have visibility into the inbound supply chain.  Having to shut down a factory because raw materials or supplies are not available is not an option in this competitive industry.

  • Deliver a unified view of real-time load data in transit: estimated arrival time, TMS shipping information, ELD/GPS location, TMS/Dispatch load assignment information, and unstructured data such as truck-specific routing, weather, traffic, and hazards.
  • Achieve real-time exception management through customizable filter, alerts, event notification as well as the ability to “follow” loads that have an impact on other transactions.
  • Streamline communications along supply chains, giving management the information it needs to optimize shipping, dock schedules, inventory management, and decision-making.
  • Ability to share load information with end-customers on a one -time or a permanent basis, giving them their own visibility into the supply chain.
