FourKites, a provider of real-time tracking solutions for shippers and 3PLs in North America, announced it is collaborating with JDA Software Group Inc. to make FourKites' real-time visibility data available within JDA Transportation Management System (TMS).
“In part by leveraging traditional and more advanced streams of intelligence that FourKites provides, JDA is building a complementary ecosystem to enable end-to-end supply chain visibility,” according to the company. “This 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 is thrilled to partner with an industry leader like JDA Software. FourKites real-time load tracking is a perfect complement to JDA's transportation planning and execution capabilities. Together we are providing unparalleled capabilities to our common customers," said FourKites CEO Matt Elenjickal.
FourKites noted it tracks truck locations every 15 minutes, recalculates ETA using real-time location data, and automates arrivals and departures using robust geo-fencing technologies. Integration allows JDA's customers to access information within their JDA TMS.
