Inbound Supplier Visibility
FourKites provides visibility into 100% of your freight — including prepaid and collect inbound — so you can keep your supply chain on track.
When you join the FourKites network, you can instantly start sharing real-time tracking data with thousands of other suppliers, customers, retailers and 3PLs. FourKites tracks over 3 million shipments every day, which gives you unprecedented opportunity to bring visibility to your inbound freight and share it with your end customers.
Unavailable inventory is a key cause of line shutdowns and changeovers, costing companies millions of dollars each year. FourKites’ inbound, SKU-level visibility predicts when your inventory will arrive and alerts you to delays along the way, so you can mitigate disruptions and reduce the need for excess safety stock.
The ability to track SKU-level details across both managed and unmanaged freight with FourKites’ Inbound Supplier Visibility has enhanced our warehouse and labor productivity significantly. In addition, it has helped us improve our in-stock position and has also provided supply planners a self-service approach to find their loads.”
