Customers using Full Circle TMS can now benefit from additional shipment visibility following the integration of FourKites’ multimodal visibility platform into the Full Circle TMS.
The integration adds real-time data on shipment transit times, location and status of shipments from capacity providers within FourKites’ network.
“Our TMS subscribers constantly must give their customers accurate and timely information about the status of their time-critical shipments,” said Stuart Sutton, president and CEO of Full Circle TMS. “Our integration with FourKites provides tremendous value to our Enterprise TMS customers.
Sutton noted that shipment information like vehicle position, arrivals, departures and supporting documentation will flow seamlessly from the company’s integrated driver productivity app Circle Mobile through the TMS out to the shipper in real time.
“With FourKites, shippers and logistics providers can quickly activate tracking, notifications for exceptions and get precise ETAs,” he added. “This integration enhances our Enterprise TMS offering, which is a clear win for our subscribers, who can expand their market to a whole new set of shippers.”
Shippers are increasingly demanding carriers utilize specific platforms, and FourKites is one of those.
“We love how Full Circle TMS makes it easy for us to provide real-time shipment transparency and visibility to our shippers,” said Jim Noble, COO of Issa Logistics. “The TMS has all sorts of visibility integrations for shippers, and the FourKites integration is just another way the ingenious minds at Full Circle TMS keep our company on the leading edge of technology. Now, if a shipper says they will only give me business if I integrate with FourKites, I can easily say yes.”
According to FourKites, Full Circle TMS users, which include hot-shot, truckload carriers and brokers, can easily send updated shipment status information via FourKites to shippers from within the Full Circle TMS platform. “The integration allows them to improve tracking and exception management, reduce costs associated with missing delivery windows, and provide world-class tracking experiences to their shipping customers,” the company noted.
“With the constant pressure on global supply chains for real-time data, carriers of all sizes are fielding customer demands for more transparency throughout the lifecycle of a shipment,” said Mathew Elenjickal, founder and CEO of FourKites. “Together with shipment information from Full Circle TMS, our predictive visibility platform leverages machine learning and advanced analytics to provide supply chain professionals with the real-time data needed to make informed, trusted decisions, and to remain agile in the face of any circumstance.”
