FourKites, a company providing real-time tracking across transportation modes and digital platforms, has announced a partnership with 3GTMS, a leading provider of Tier 1 transportation management software (TMS).

The goal is to to enhance processes for third-party logistics (3PLs) providers and shippers by incorporating FourKites’ freight visibility platform with 3GTMS’software into a unified offering.

Here are the details: FourKites’ technology gathers shipment status information and location from more than four million GPS/ELD tracking devices and driver cell phones – all in real-time. Together with 3GTMS, FourKites offers customers top-of-the-line shipment visibility capabilities via location and ETA information updated every 15 minutes, as well as predictive weather and traffic information to assess their impact on arrival times.

“In the past, freight could be delayed by traffic, weather and other factors and would send updates that were hours late,” said J.P. Wiggins, vice president of logistics at 3GTMS. “Now, shippers expect to know where their freight is in real time. By partnering with FourKites, 3GTMS can provide its customers and their clients with immediate tracking capabilities, making it easier to track and manage freight shipping exceptions, if not prevent them in the first place.”

“What brings FourKites and 3GTMS together is a mutual understanding of why the supply chain needs automation,” said Craig Fiander, senior vice president of global business development at FourKites. “Customers are equipped with the tools to predict, act and respond to any potential obstacles. Tracking valuable shipments nationwide is no longer a guessing game because customers are armed with complete visibility needed to avoid complications.”
