Full Circle TMS, a supplier of transportation management software (TMS) for carriers and brokers in the expedite, hot-shot and truckload market, has natively integrated FourKites’ market-leading global, multimodal real-time transportation visibility platform into the Enterprise version of their TMS. This new integration delivers third-party logistics providers, brokers and shippers real-time, accurate data on shipment transit times, location, and status.
Growing supply-chain complexity has increased the need for improved visibility on shipments. With this integration, Enterprise TMS users, which include hundreds of expedite, hot-shot and 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.
“Our TMS subscribers constantly must give their customers accurate and timely information about the status of their time critical shipments,” said Stuart Sutton, president & CEO of Full Circle TMS. “Our integration with FourKites provides tremendous value to our Enterprise TMS customers. Shipment information, like vehicle position, arrivals, departures and supporting documentation seamlessly flow from the 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. 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.”
FourKites’ integration with Full Circle TMS Enterprise level software provides users with instant and normalized carrier data, including transit times, location and status of shipments, directly from capacity providers within the FourKites network.
“We love how Full Circle TMS makes it easy for us to provide real-time shipment transparency and visibility to our shippers,” says Jim Noble, chief operating officer 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!”
“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.”
