“…with FourKites I have a grasp on which loads have been pushed”

“As suppliers, we need to know our deliveries have arrived where they are needed. I’ve been using FourKites to backfill the holes in our EDI delivery data wherever I can. Right now, everyone is swamped, so having visibility is really helpful. Knowing when to chase people for information and when to wait because a building had to push deliveries back has been enormously valuable. Local dispatch doesn’t need me asking them for updates on shipments that are rolling down the road right now – and with FourKites I have a grasp on which loads have been pushed.”

– Analyst, Leading wholesale grocery supplier

“monitor border crossing times for trucks”

“I am super grateful to FourKites for delivering a tool to monitor border crossing times for trucks in North America! It is immensely helpful to understand the impact of COVID-19 on the supply chain networks in the region!”

– Sergiy Yablonsky, Senior Product Manager, Transportation, Nestle

“Companies that invested in mapping their supply networks before the pandemic emerged better prepared.”

“They have better visibility into the structure of their supply chains. Instead of scrambling at the last minute, they have a lot of information at their fingertips within minutes of a potential disruption. They know exactly which suppliers, sites, parts, and products are at risk, which allows them to put themselves first in line to secure constrained inventory and capacity at alternate sites.”

– Thomas Y. Choi, Dale Rogers, and Bindiya Vakil, Harvard Business Review
