In addition to the email and time savings, on-time delivery on live unload shipments has improved by 10% due to the ability to secure the live load pick up in a timely manner.”

Every industry, every profession, every job, all has its own unique inefficiencies – those mundane but critical tasks that tend to take up far more of the workday than we’d prefer. Case-in-point: appointment scheduling, the bane of shippers, carriers and receivers alike. Read about how FourKites has solved for this critical pain point with Appointment Manager in the blog below.
“The simplicity of the user interface made it that much easier for both our DC associates and carriers to use. They’re eager to use it because it shaves so much time off their day.”
– Jane Kennedy, Manager of Carrier Relations and Inbound Freight, Michaels
FourKites has been awesome to work with. They’re very responsive and helpful with any questions or concerns. I can tell they genuinely care about the people and companies they work with and our partnership with FourKites is one that has grown over the last couple of years to be something great for both parties.
FourKites has been one of the easiest vendors to work with in terms of implementation and integration. This company really strives to deliver value to their customers. The UI for load tracking is well thought out and easy to use.
True partnership with our company. FourKites personnel always goes beyond the expectations. For example, they have helped with us with not only the implementation of their platform within our organization but also with the “monetization” of benefits which could be realized in the future.
We’ve integrated Fourkites shipment information into our system to provide live shipment status to our customers, improving communication and customer relationships.
Implementation team was professional and thorough and transition to ongoing support was smooth. FourKites is constantly developing and improving and is driven by customer input and feedback.
They’re quick to respond to questions or problems. If they don’t have the solution, they’re quick to find someone who does and provides you with a resolution. I’ve noticed most (if not all) employees I’ve encountered have encouraging attitudes which helps keep my attitude positive.
