SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FourKites, the most comprehensive provider of real-time tracking solutions for shippers and 3PLs in North America, has announced it is collaborating with JDA Software Group Inc. to make FourKites' real-time visibility data available within JDA Transportation Management System (TMS).
In part by leveraging traditional and more advanced streams of intelligence that FourKites provides, JDA is building a complementary ecosystem to enable end-to-end supply chain visibility. This partnership enables carrier connectivity, efficient on-boarding, and real-time visibility within JDA Transportation Management. FourKites can cover the entire spectrum of the trucking industry, from private fleets to individual owner-operators, through a combination of tracking technologies: 40+ ELD partnerships, a proprietary smartphone app, and app-less tracking using cell tower triangulation.
"FourKites is thrilled to partner with an industry leader like JDA Software. FourKites real-time load tracking is a perfect compliment to JDA's transportation planning and execution capabilities. Together we are providing unparalleled capabilities to our common customers," said FourKites CEO Matt Elenjickal.
FourKites tracks truck locations every 15 minutes, recalculates ETA using real-time location data, and automates arrivals and departures using robust geo-fencing technologies. Integration allows JDA's customers to access all of this powerful information within their JDA TMS. Integration virtually eliminates the need for expensive EDI setups or phone calls to drivers and dispatchers, saving customers both time and money.
FourKites provides real-time supply chain visibility and logistics solutions across transportation modes and digital platforms. Using FourKites, the shipper, the broker, and the carrier can share the same, real-time truck location and shipment status information - from onboard systems in the largest commercial fleets to individual owner-operator cellphones - with a smartphone app and cell tower triangulation. Bypassing check calls and EDI, FourKites saves time and money across the transportation spectrum. Best of all, nothing falls through the cracks.
