Founder and CEO of FourKites, Matt Elenjickal, and CIO of Dupré Logistics, Bob Verret, are presenting on “Shipping Visibility, Redefined” during eft’s 3PL & Supply Chain Summit.
During the session, Elenjickal and Verret will focus on the impact visibility technology has on carrier management, customer service and broader operational efficiencies. Attendees will gain a well-rounded perspective on how freight visibility has helped 3PLs improve on-time service performance and drive better use of data.
FourKites’ and Dupré Logistics’ partnership is an exemplary model for other 3PLs. FourKites’ technology silos ultra-specific visibility information into one system that informs Dupré and its customers where each truck is traveling at any point in time, so that unseen delays, whether it’s traffic or a natural disaster, can be addressed as they happen, rather than hours after the fact. Dupré and its customers receive constant updates on ETAs, which factor in drive times, driver rest time and local driving conditions. Its streamlined communication capabilities ensure all parties have tabs on active loads without disruptive calls to dispatchers or drivers. The partnership’s use of predictive analytics and interactive mapping ensures Dupré and its customers can plan and execute more efficient shipping services.
Elenjickal is available for in-person interviews at the event. Please contact FourKites’ media contact listed below.
