Customers give FourKites top marks on real-world performance and impact
CHICAGO, Ill. — August 26, 2021 — FourKites®, the world’s leading real-time supply chain visibility platform, today announced that it has been named a 2021 Great Supply Chain Partner by SupplyChainBrain, the world’s most comprehensive supply chain management information resource. Nominated by its customers, FourKites was recognized for its significant impact on its customers’ efficiency, customer service and supply chain performance.
2021 marks SupplyChainBrain’s 19th consecutive annual list of 100 Great Supply Chain Partners. To qualify for the award, vendors must be nominated directly by their customers, providing a true measure of that vendor’s business impact in real-world applications. FourKites joins Manhattan Associates, GlobalTranz, MercuryGate and other supply chain leaders on this year’s list.
“For nineteen years running, SupplyChainBrain has published our list of 100 Great Supply Chain Partners — a select group of companies whose customers recognize them for providing outstanding solutions and services,” said Brad Berger, Publisher, SupplyChainBrain. “Our six-month online poll of supply chain professionals asks them to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service, and overall supply chain performance. This year’s field of nominees was highly competitive and overall excellent – coming from all sectors of supply chain management.”
FourKites pioneered real-time supply chain visibility in 2014, and has since built the world’s largest visibility platform, now tracking over 2 million shipments daily across 176 countries. The FourKites network now boasts more than 620 of the world’s leading brands, including Coca-Cola, Dow, Eastman, PetSmart, The Michaels Companies, Land O’Lakes, AB InBev, Constellation Brands and 3M, and touches 50% of the Fortune 500.
