What Customers Are Saying on Gartner Peer Insights™
FourKites continues to earn accolades for its unique customer-driven innovation model; for the maturity of its end-to-end, multimodal platform; and for its unwavering commitment to customer success.
“Supply chain management has become so much easier now. Gratification arises from knowing that our cargo has been safely delivered, because FourKites allows our team to keep track of exactly where it is. Having access to the data and analytics that FourKites has supplied has been necessary for decision-making, controlling the items exiting our facility, and efficiently monitoring shipments.”
“As a solution provider, FourKites provides a remarkable coverage and support experience. They are an accelerator of our digital transformation initiatives and a great partner who pro-actively seeks feedback in order to gleam future needs and innovations to their roadmap.”
“To serve our customers, we need a platform that enables supply chain professionals to act quickly to fulfill their orders. Making decisions, regulating what leaves our facilities, and effectively tracking shipments have all required access to the data and analytics that FourKites has provided. The user interface is relatively simple and adaptable to the needs of each individual user, which makes it quite easy to use. … As the product has been so successful in the US, we want to expand it to our offices and affiliates abroad to take advantage of its popularity.”
“Working with FourKites has been great. They are constantly innovating and bringing new features or products to the table. They are also great at listening to customer feedback, ensuring the new features or upgrades align with customer needs.”
“FourKites is bringing visibility that our supply chain has never had before. The notifications for delivery, real-time predictive ETAs are game changers for efficiency and the aggregate data provided by FourKites unlocks control tower capability.”
“FourKites’ platform is complete and mature from an ocean, rail and truck tracking perspective, but they offer so much more when you start to look at their Yard Management and Appointment Scheduling tools. Their onboarding and customer success teams are professional and helpful. They are our partners in this ongoing journey.”
