FourKites Partners with SMC³ to Extend End-to-End Supply Chain Visibility Across Less-than-Truckload Shipments

Real-time less-than-truckload (LTL) load tracking enables FourKites customers to run their supply chains more efficiently based on more accurate location data.

LTL tracking is critical to delivering end-to-end visibility but presents unique challenges because LTL loads often undergo a complex series of handoffs, including time spent at cross-docks and distribution centers.

Determining load status at every point along that journey requires the industry’s best data.

By partnering with SMC³, FourKites eliminates this difficulty and solves the challenge of providing accurate, real-time visibility for LTL shipments.

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” Matt Elenjickal, CEO of FourKites

“FourKites is a trusted SMC³ partner, and we’re pleased to join forces with an innovative and recognized leader in providing real-time supply chain visibility across all transportation modes,” said SMC³ President and CEO Andrew Slusher.

“By selecting SMC³’s LTL APIs, FourKites is powering its platform with best-in-class freight APIs that optimize the complete LTL shipment lifecycle, solving the visibility needs of customers by providing reliable, secure solutions.”

“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.”
