October 4, 2019: Predictive supply chain visibility provider FourKites and ocean freight intelligence provider Ocean Insights have forged a partnership to transform container visibility. FourKites' network of more than 260 global shippers will be combined with Ocean Insights’ real-time container tracking capabilities globally.
The partnership will allow import and export teams to rely on a single system for door-to-door tracking. It will create a plug-and-play deployment model that integrates Ocean Insights’ ocean freight tracking data with FourKites’ real-time visibility platform to offer domestic and international logistics professionals end-to-end visibility, from global seaports to final destinations worldwide.
“We’re excited to now offer true door-to-door capabilities to our customers via the integration of our superior ocean data, together with FourKites’ over-the-road data and our powerful predictive platform,” said Dr Felix Richter, CEO of Ocean Insights.
Customers of the two organisations will be able to better manage detention and demurrage costs. They can also improve operational performance and reduce operational costs.
“This partnership gives FourKites and Ocean Insights’ customers powerful new capabilities to track cargo and notify downstream supply chain stakeholders of potential delivery disruptions. Now, supply chain professionals can better manage their operations and unlock value through a single, consistent visibility platform, regardless of international and domestic responsibilities,” said Mathew Elenjickal, CEO of FourKites.
FourKites was launched five years ago, and currently tracks more than 600,000 shipments every day. Ocean Insights collates data and provides actionable insights into ocean freight for the logistics industry to improve visibility, transparency, and efficiency.
