EROAD, a technology provider of fleet management, electronic tax reporting and electronic logging device compliance solutions for the transportation industry, has started offering customers integration with Chicago-based FourKites, enabling real-time truck and load location visibility and status updates.
“Real-time load tracking is an integral part of having end-to-end supply chain visibility,” said Scott McCollister, senior product manager at EROAD, in a news release. “With the combined capabilities of EROAD and FourKites, they gain visibility into their supply chains, lower operating costs, improve on-time performance and strengthen customer relationships.”
Using GPS data from EROAD, FourKites retrieves the real-time location of trucks every 15 minutes and applies predictive analytics to provide an estimated time of arrival, delay alerts, and pickup and delivery confirmations, according to the release.
“With EROAD’s real-time location tracking feed into FourKites, carriers can give shippers and third-party logistics providers precise locations and accurate arrival times,” said Craig Fiander, senior vice president of global business development, in the release.
EROAD is headquartered in New Zealand with North American offices in Portland, Ore.
