FourKites, a supply chain visibility platform, introduced its Order Intelligence Hub, a new single-pane-of-glass view of the entire lifecycle of every order. By integrating order data, load information across modes, yard shipments, inventory visibility and other critical third-party systems, such as warehouse management systems and order management systems, shippers and their supply chain partners now have a new tool to eliminate inefficiencies, manage exceptions, reduce expenses and increase customer satisfaction at every step of an order’s journey.
As part of the recently announced Supply Chain Health and Performance Task Force, the mission of which is to increase visibility and ease supply chain pressures across the CPG industry, FourKites worked closely with Consumer Brands and 15 of its members to identify common pain points and create a solution that would address those challenges by breaking down silos between teams and systems. “Collaboration is essential for building modern, resilient supply chains,” said Tom Madrecki, vice president of supply chain and logistics at Consumer Brands. “The Supply Chain Health and Performance Task Force — in partnership with FourKites — is bringing more visibility, agility and data sharing to our supply chain, allowing the CPG industry to better navigate future challenges and ensure the reliable delivery of essential goods."
“The Order Intelligence Hub is a big milestone as we execute on our vision to connect the physical and digital worlds of warehouses, stores and transportation with real-time data and machine learning,” said Mathew Elenjickal, founder and CEO of FourKites. “Collaborating with our customers and other industry leaders, like Consumer Brands, in product development has enabled us to bring to market some of the most innovative solutions that address the industry’s most critical pain points.”
