The partnership can give Spotos’ customers up-to-the-minute predictive estimated times of arrival (ETAs) and real-time status updates for their shipments at anytime, anywhere in Europe, whether in transit or at rest. With these advanced insights provided by FourKites, Spotos’ customers can reduce dwell and detention costs while optimising their network as shippers look to manage their costs better.
“Our mission is to revolutionise traditional freight exchange by enabling the best transparency, simplicity and accessibility for small and medium shippers,” said Šarūnas Stanislovėnas, founder and CEO of Spotos. “Now, thanks to FourKites' predictive insights, we will be able to provide our customers with ETAs that are more accurate and detailed than other available technologies could reliably deliver."
Spotos will also leverage FourKites’ carrier visibility platform, NIC-Place. This will give its customers access to granular data, including temperature tracking data for high-value transports, such as pharmaceuticals, fresh and frozen products, and electronic equipment throughout all parts of their fleet. With its proprietary Data Control Center (DCC), FourKites’ NIC-Place solution can provide a flexible and secure way for carriers to share supply chain data with customers, while giving them complete control of their business, their network and their data.
Based in Berlin, Spotos’ fully automated spot freight forwarding platform assures the highest-level service experience for small and medium-sized (SMB) shippers, regardless of their order volume or frequency. FourKites’ offering — powered by cutting-edge artificial intelligence and machine learning — will integrate with Spotos’ platform to extend visibility beyond transportation into yards, warehouses, stores and more.
Visibility across the entire supply chain network is crucial for SMB customers shipping high-value goods. By leveraging FourKites’ market-leading data network, Spotos’ customers can dynamically react to changes in plans and make more informed decisions in real time. In addition, FourKites will fuel insights that drive smarter operational planning and uncover new opportunities for operational efficiencies and cost savings.
“We’re delighted to team up with Spotos to ensure their customers can seamlessly track their freight in one unified platform,” said Marc Boileau, FourKites’ Senior Vice President of Sales, Network & Operations EMEA. “With FourKites, Spotos gets the most advanced tracking features for true end-to-end visibility, giving them a single pane of glass solution and the industry’s most accurate predictive ETAs for every shipment.”
“We’re excited about our partnership with FourKites,” continued Stanislovėnas. “FourKites has proven itself to be a true partner that has our best interests at heart and is always striving to do what’s right for our business and our customers.”
