Chicago-based FourKites, a supply chain visibility platform, and Rockford-based Cleo, an ecosystem integration software company, announced an integration to accelerate data exchange for carriers across the global logistics and transportation industry.
“As carriers look to open up B2B e-commerce opportunities, meet more rigid shipper and customer mandates and stay competitive in the post-pandemic era, using Cleo’s platform to integrate data into FourKites can help them minimize complexity, increase visibility and accelerate business growth,” said Vipin Mittal, Cleo’s vice president, customer experience. “Because Cleo Integration Cloud enables both API and EDI integration from the same platform, carriers will readily gain the supply chain agility and control they need to stay competitive as digital transformation proliferates.”
Using the newly available integration, Cleo will serve as an integration broker, providing the connections that enable carriers of all types to access FourKites’ APIs, accelerating their trading partner onboarding and improving supply chain visibility by enabling data integration between CIC and the FourKites platform.
