Gartner Selects FourKites as a Cool Vendor in Supply Chain Technologies for 2016

Chicago, IL (May 10th, 2016) – Gartner, the world leader in information technology research, has selected FourKites as one of their Cool Vendors in Supply Chain Technologies, 2016.

In a survey of supply chain executives, Gartner found that 31% plan to invest more and 14% plan to invest significantly more in visibility or event management through the end of fiscal 2016 (Gartner, 2016).

FourKites is the most comprehensive real-time load tracking platform in North America and serves some of the largest shippers, third-party logistics companies (3PLs), and brokers. FourKites can cover the entire spectrum of the trucking industry, from private fleets to individual owner-operators, through a combination of tracking technologies: 40+ ELD partnerships, a proprietary smartphone app, and app-less tracking using cell tower triangulation.

FourKites tracks truck locations every 15 minutes, recalculates ETA using real-time location data, and automates arrivals and departures using robust geo-fencing technologies. FourKites virtually eliminates the need for expensive EDI setups or phone calls to drivers and dispatchers, saving customers both time and money, and can integrate with any transportation management software (TMS) that the customer is already using.
