FourKites, a supply chain tracking and predictive analytics provider, announces a partnership with SMC³, a less-than-truckload (LTL) data and API solutions provider, that enables FourKites customers to track all of their freight using comprehensive LTL data.
LTL tracking presents unique challenges because LTL loads often undergo a complex series of handoffs, including time spent at cross-docks and distribution centers. By partnering with SMC³, FourKites said it has eliminated this difficulty to provide accurate, real-time visibility for LTL shipments.
The companies say the new real-time LTL load tracking integration enables FourKites customers to run their supply chains more efficiently based on more accurate location data.
“FourKites is committed to bringing superior visibility to the entire global supply chain – all loads, all modes, all stops,” said Matt Elenjickal, CEO of FourKites. “Partnering with the industry leader in LTL ensures that we can continue to give our customers the best information available for this mode, allowing them to make powerful, informed decisions, and provide better customer service on loads that have traditionally been very difficult to track.”
