FourKites, a provider of real-time supply chain visibility solutions, recently announced its acquisition of Haven, Inc., and the introduction of Dynamic OceanSM, an end-to-end visibility solution for international ocean shipments. The solution integrates document management capabilities, collaboration features, support for bookings and end-to-end real-time tracking. FourKites’ new solution builds on technologies gained through its acquisition of Haven, a provider of international ocean shipping, document management and tracking.
“Haven is thrilled to bring our team and expertise in SaaS, supply chain and ocean tracking to FourKites, a company that pioneered real-time freight visibility and shares our vision for more automated, collaborative supply chains,” said Brad Klaus, CEO at Haven. “There is nothing like Dynamic Ocean in the market. It is a true game-changer for organizations that ship internationally via ocean.”
Capabilities of the new product include:
“Ocean shipping is extremely complex, with at least six different parties touching a single container, and cumbersome documentation workflows that can account for upwards of 70% of detention and demurrage,” said Mathew Elenjickal, founder and CEO of FourKites. “Together with Haven, we are proud to introduce new end-to-end ocean capabilities that have been sorely lacking in the industry, and that are now mission-critical to effective management of ocean shipments.”
