According to the company, Geotab customers can share real-time location information of specific loads with internal and external customers, allowing shipping and receiving locations to plan in advance for arrivals, streamline loading and unloading, reduce wait times, and get the truck back on the road efficiently.
Automatic ETA and delay notifications increase driver safety by reducing the number of phone calls, text, and emails to and from drivers, and allow carriers to eliminate expensive and antiquated EDI transmissions, the company added.
“Geotab is becoming a crucial player in the ELD telematics space, and with this partnership, Geotab customers can not only share their data and location in real-time with their shipper and broker partners, but also gain valuable insights to help analyze their operations,” says Mathew Elenjickal, CEO, FourKites.
“Through our partnership with FourKites, Geotab customers have real-time supply chain visibility and logistics solutions across transportation modes, allowing for efficient management of their loads” says Neil Cawse, CEO, Geotab. “With advanced tracking information, this integrated solution provides one more way to increase customer service and boost productivity of their fleet.”
