FourKites, a provider of real-time tracking solutions for shippers and 3PLs in North America, has announced it is collaborating with JDA Software Group Inc. to make FourKites’ real-time visibility data available within JDA Transportation Management System (TMS).
With the “streams of intelligence” that FourKites provides, the company says, JDA is building a system to enable end-to-end supply chain visibility. The partnership enables carrier connectivity, efficient on-boarding, and real-time visibility within JDA Transportation Management. FourKites can cover the entire spectrum of the trucking industry, from private fleets to individual owner-operators, through a combination of tracking technologies: 40+ ELD partnerships, a proprietary smartphone app, and app-less tracking using cell tower triangulation.
FourKites tracks truck locations every 15 minutes, recalculates ETA using real-time location data, and automates arrivals and departures using geo-fencing technologies. Integration allows JDA’s customers to access all of this information within their JDA TMS. Integration virtually eliminates the need for expensive EDI setups or phone calls to drivers and dispatchers, saving customers both time and money.
