New partnership provides Vitti’s customers real-time GPS-based ETAs and exception management
CHICAGO, Ill. — August 29, 2017 — FourKites, the real-time supply chain visibility platform connected to more than four million assets in North America, will help Vitti Logistics, a Third Party Logistics (3PL) provider to major companies in Mexico and the United States, deliver differentiated customer value through real-time tracking and exception management across Mexico.
The partnership also marks a shift for Vitti, away from legacy visibility technology and toward market-leading, GPS-based tracking, powered by major Mexican telematics companies, including Grupo DECA, Ubic, Venit, SOS GPS, Pointer and many others. Vitti’s customers can now turn data from FourKites into actionable intelligence to proactively manage exceptions as they occur.
“FourKites’ unmatched ETA precision will enable us to give our customers the best possible real-time visibility into their freight,” said Antonio Luna, managing partner of Vitti Logistics. “As a 3PL for major companies delivering time-critical loads across Mexico, we needed a visibility provider that could quickly onboard carriers and bring the market’s best GPS integrations – ultimately to let us maximize value for our customers. FourKites was the clear choice.”
Since its founding in 2014, FourKites has been rapidly displacing existing visibility platforms through its technologically differentiated predictive platform, which calculates shipment arrival times based on GPS satellite tracking data updated every 15 minutes, as opposed to the less precise cell phone tower triangulation method that incumbent visibility providers rely on.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Vitti to give shippers in Mexico access to the same GPS-based, up-to-the-minute ETA accuracy that we deliver for Fortune 100 companies in the U.S.,” said Matt Elenjickal, founder and CEO of FourKites. “We are closing the technology gap left by existing visibility solutions, making it possible for any company, no matter the size or location, to reinvigorate their business with real-time data in order to make educated decisions about their supply chain.”
