In addition, Premier Carriers are providing their shipper customers and the broader supply chain ecosystem with data that is being leveraged to streamline operations, increase the speed of shipping dock turn times, reduce inventory levels and optimise labor costs. Premier Carriers average 12% more in load volume than carriers who have not qualified for the list. Some of the new European carriers who have qualified for the list this quarter include Van den Bosch, Speedliner Logistics BV, Hope Sped SRL, AF Zust Ambrosetti SRL, Curt Richter SE, Santos e Vale and BDtrans.
AB InBev, the world’s largest brewer, asks transportation companies in Western Europe to feed location data into its FourKites platform to track deliveries and predict arrival times more precisely.
Plan2Transport is one of these companies. It ships 30,000 full truck loads a year throughout Germany and the Benelux for AB InBev.
“Working with AB InBev’s FourKites platform allows us to offer a better service,” says Roy van der Heijden, business analyst at Int. transportbedrijf van der Heijden b.v. which is one of the shareholders in Plan2Transport. “FourKites make it so easy for us to feed GPS data into AB InBev’s platform. And now thanks to being on the Premier Carrier List we’re confident we’ll get even more business from customers who want excellent visibility into their supply chains.”
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.
“Ninatrans is honored to be included in the FourKites Premier Carrier List,” said Joni Timmermans, ICT-Supervisor, Ninatrans. “It's a pleasure to be recognised as one of the top performing Carriers in Europe. It’s always rewarding to be recognised for providing excellent service."
