CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FourKites, a leader in logistics visibility software for shippers and 3PLs, and Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), has announced that its real-time load tracking platform is now available with Oracle Transportation Management Cloud (OTM) and Oracle Transportation Management version 6.3.0 of higher.
FourKites is integrated with more than 45 ELD/trailer tracking providers powering the trucking industry. In addition to ELD integrations, FourKites has developed proprietary smartphone apps and 'App-Less' tracking technology using cell tower triangulation for trucks that have not yet installed an ELD.
FourKites tracks truck locations every 15 minutes, recalculates ETA using real-time location, traffic and weather data, and automates arrivals and departures using robust geo-fencing technologies. The solution allows OTM customers to send shipment data to FourKites and access tracking and exception management data generated by FourKites within OTM. Additionally, FourKites software can save customers both time and money by virtually eliminating the need for expensive carrier EDI setups and phone calls and emails to dispatchers.
"The real-time visibility and data exchange powered by this collaboration can take our mutual customers' productivity gains to another level," said Mathew Elenjickal, CEO of FourKites. "The combined solution can deliver operational efficiencies not just in logistics, but also in downstream functions such as sales, customer service, and warehouse and dock operations."
"The FourKites integration to OTM can allow Ruan to proactively manage shipments on company and/or carrier partner assets," said Marty Wadle, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain Solutions for Ruan, an Oracle Transportation Management customer. "Our customers and their customers have access to real-time visibility of their freight, which can allow us to closely monitor on time performance. If a delay is identified, we work with carriers and customers in areas ranging from re-sequencing dock schedules to expediting, which can allow us to minimize supply chain impacts."
Based in Chicago, FourKites can provide 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 smartphones. Bypassing check calls and EDI, FourKites can save time and money across the transportation spectrum. For more information, visit: https://www.fourkites.com/
