Dupré Logistics announced it has implemented FourKites’ real-time load tracking platform to increase supply chain visibility. The company began using the platform three months ago.
“We can share FourKites’ location data and ETA with both our shipping and receiving customers, so while we’re preventing calls and emails to our customer service team, our account team can actually use it as a sales tool for prospective customers,” said Mike Weindel, vice president of the Lafayete, La.-based company. “Everyone here has accurate tracking information and digital logs, so there’s no calling the drivers and distracting them with ETA requests, and we can use FourKites’ delay notifications to quickly correct and minimize exceptions.”
“We’re also able to build better carrier relationships by getting billed, settled, and paying them faster than before, without the cost of third-party factoring,” Weindel continued.
Dave Walker, FourKites chief revenue officer, commented on the partnership.
“Dupré very quickly became a FourKites’ success story: we quickly onboarded all of their trucks with ELD devices and their dashboard map was active with live loads, each with its own robust profile of shareable and reportable information. We’re looking forward to enhancing their capabilities in the future to add even more value to their supply chain,” he said.
