We have been very impressed with all aspects of the FourKites team – the product, the implementation, the technology and the leadership team. I feel both honored to be asked and excited to be a part of the FourKites Executive CAB. The digitization of the supply chain and the consumer is happening before our eyes. I believe this is a part of the revolution.
