PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- NFI Industries, one of North America's largest and best 3PL companies, has recently chosen to implement FourKites real-time load tracking platform to help enhance its logistics operations. As an end-to-end 3PL, NFI offers services in distribution, dedicated transportation, brokerage, transportation management, intermodal, global logistics, and commercial real estate, they need the level of control tower visibility that FourKites provides.
"We are an industry- leading 3PL, and we want to work with industry-leading partners as we advance our service and capabilities," said Jeff Kanterman, Vice President of Transportation Management, NFI. "Freight visibility and true, actionable visibility has long been a priority for us. We chose FourKites because they've proven to provide the breadth and depth of capabilities that give us a 'control tower' view we need for our customers and our business."
With the implementation of FourKites, NFI will be able to access real-time location information and the ETAs of every truck carrying their customer's products across North America. With access to detailed information, the NFI customer service team can proactively manage exceptions and provide answers immediately, without calls to dispatchers or drivers. The ability to see all active loads on a map with easy-to-access, hover-over details allows everyone, including end-customers, to be on the same page working toward on-time and hassle-free deliveries.
"We set out to be the freight visibility industry standard for leading 3PLs," said Matt Elenjickal, CEO, FourKites. "NFI made it clear to us how important visibility is for their business, and, as importantly, their customers. We are extremely proud to partner with such an outstanding organization and see our FourKites platform make a huge difference to their dedicated and award winning customer service."
