After implementing FourKites’ LTL platform, one of America’s largest food producers experienced 87% more accurate ETAs when compared to industry standards, as well as a 1-hour arrival time window, compared to median industry-average windows of 600+ minutes.
With LTL ETAs that are 6x more accurate than industry-standard delivery windows – down to mere hours, not days – you can strategically plan your routes to optimize for both cost and efficiency.
Leveraging the world’s largest network of logistics data, FourKites has revolutionized LTL visibility by applying machine learning to 3.2 billion tracked LTL miles and 1.3 trillion transit patterns. FourKites’ Dynamic ETA® for LTL adjusts in real time with every update and status change, offering a much-needed alternative to the status quo.
“The ability to proactively manage exceptions for LTL shipments means better planning, smoother operations and improved visibility for customers. Predicting accurate arrival times for LTL loads has always been one of the harder problems in supply chain. This is a genuine breakthrough in real-time visibility, and we are happy to have collaborated with FourKites to help make this innovation happen.”
Dustin Braun, Senior Director – Logistics, Land O’ Lakes
With FourKites, PRO numbers are assigned at load creation, eliminating the need for you to match freight to PRO numbers. From beginning to end of your freight’s journey, you’ll know exactly what’s arriving, and when. FourKites is integrated with the top-25 carriers covering 85% of nation’s freight, and is always working to improve coverage.
One of the most daunting aspects of LTL visibility is the number of stakeholders involved. But with FourKites, all parties involved in moving your freight will have easy, centralized access to the necessary documentation, such as PODs, BOLs, weight certificates and more.
“We’re managing more than 400,000 active, temperature-controlled loads annually. To continue to be a trusted partner, we needed cutting-edge technology to help us better manage and measure our performance. With FourKites, we can identify and mitigate inefficient processes, unexpected delays, equipment failures and more as they occur. We can troubleshoot the loads that are predicted to be late, rather than focusing man-hours on shipments that we know will deliver on time.”
