Company is recognized for helping global electrical solutions supplier optimize customer delivery through real-time freight visibility
CHICAGO – June 28, 2019 – FourKites®, the leader in predictive supply chain visibility, today announced that it has been selected by Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, as a recipient of an SDCE 100 Award for 2019.
The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects that can serve as a map for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their operations. These projects demonstrate how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
FourKites was recognized for partnering with a global electrical solutions supplier to transform its supply chain through innovative technology. Specifically, the company selected FourKites’ real-time freight visibility platform to provide enhanced predictive visibility and analytics across its supply chain, and to digitize its previously paper-based proof of delivery (POD) process. The partnership enables the company to more precisely track its products all the way to their final customer destinations; track product returns collected at various location sites; compile crucial input for its materials resource planning process; and improve its order-to-cash workflow.
“We are honored to be recognized for providing customers with a platform that helps them be more proactive and optimize their supply chains based on actionable data and predictive intelligence,” said Mathew Elenjickal, CEO of FourKites. “As supply chains become more complex, organizations can significantly benefit from using an intelligent network platform, where partners can collaborate in real time to create more efficient, transparent and sustainable supply chains.”
“Every year our list of submissions for the SDCE 100 continues to grow as more companies rely on the expertise of supply management for innovative decision-making. Our winners raise the bar for what is achievable in the supply chain,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “With a variety of company sizes and industry sectors represented, our Top 100 are leading examples for how to approach and solve supply chain challenges. Congratulations to our 2019 winners and the projects that delivered greater operational efficiencies and bottom-line results across the supply chain.”
