Moreover, through its partnership with FourKites, Alpega TMS provides enhanced supply chain visibility across all transportation modes within logistics networks.

Customers can benefit from the Alpega TMS collaborative platform for managing the end-to-end transportation process – from sourcing through settlement – across simple to complex logistics networks; while FourKites provides the end-to-end, real-time predictive visibility and analytics for improved customer service and delivery exception management.

Having pioneered the application of predictive visibility to various aspects of supply chain operations, FourKites’ network now includes more than 400 of the world’s top shippers and their broker and carrier partners - including 18 of the top-20 food and beverage companies and nine of the top-10 CPG companies.

ABB: Q3 2020 Results23.10.2020 07:46:00 EESTPress release

“Third quarter revenues in all business areas were still dampened due to the impact of COVID-19, although a strong recovery in China and ongoing cost mitigation efforts supported a strong underlying performance. On the upside, the integration of GEIS and turnaround of Installation Products in Electrification is starting to bear fruit and Motion is performing robustly. Robotics and Industrial Automation, on the other hand, are taking more time to recover,” said Björn Rosengren, CEO of ABB. “We are pushing ahead with the decentralization of the group and the ongoing review of our portfolio, while carrying out our share buyback program as planned. We look forward to presenting further details on our strategic progress at our Capital Markets Day on November 19.” KEY FIGURES CHANGE CHANGE ($ millions, unless otherwise indicated) Q3 2020 Q3 2019 US$ Comparable 9M 2020 9M 2019 US$ Comparable Orders 6,109 6,688 -9% -8% 19,509 21,702 -10% -7% Revenues 6,582 6,892 -4% -4% 18,952 20,910 -9% -7% I
