Markets’ 11th Premier Carrier List showcases the carriers, brokers and 3PLs who are best leveraging visibility to provide critical business value to their customers
GAINESVILLE, GA, NOVEMBER 22, 2021 — FourKites®, the world’s leading real-time supply chain visibility platform, has named FX Logistics to its Premier Carrier List (PCL) for the third quarter of 2021. FourKites’ 11th consecutive quarterly list showcases the hundreds of brokers, carriers and 3PLs worldwide who are achieving the highest standards of visibility-related operational excellence across all modes of transport, as demonstrated by their ability to provide high-quality, consistent, accurate data on the vast majority of their loads.
In addition, Premier Carriers’ pervasive use of real-time visibility data provides their shipper customers and the broader supply chain ecosystem with the ability to streamline operations, increase the speed of shipping dock turn times, reduce inventory levels and optimize labor costs.
“We have been using FourKites on the asset side for almost two years. A year ago, we completed an integration with our TMS that has significantly streamlined the reporting requirements. We have had a good experience using FourKites with our asset operation, so much so that we purchased their services for our 25,000 annual load brokerage operation,” says John Huggins, Chief Commercial Officer for FX Logistics.
“FX Logistics is a valued visibility partner to FourKites, and their status on the Premier Carrier List shows their steadfast commitment to providing visibility information that improves supply chain operations for their customers at this incredibly critical time,” said Jason Eversole, Vice President of Carrier Operations at FourKites.
A public-facing version of the Premier Carrier List is available here. Customers and the public can now access and search the list through an updated interface that filters carriers according to capabilities, transportation modes, geographies serviced and other relevant criteria. In addition, users can view carriers that are registered partners in the US Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay® program, which helps companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking and improving freight transportation efficiencies.
