“We are impressed with FourKites’ ability to work with carriers of every size and integrate with in-cab ELDs and driver cell phones. It was important for us to partner with a technology provider trusted by our carrier and broker network,” says Ray Kredell, vice president of operations at US Foods.
With the implementation of FourKites, US Foods will be able to access real-time location information and the ETAs of every truck carrying its products, the company said. US Foods said its customer service team can proactively manage exceptions and provide answers immediately, without calls to dispatchers or drivers.
“US Foods has a long history of building an innovative supply chain. We are extremely proud to partner with such a dynamic organization and see our cutting-edge connected-devices platform making a huge difference in a short timeframe,” said Matt Elenjickal, CEO, FourKites.
