FourKites partners with cargonerds

FourKites has announced a partnership with cargonerds to enhance the digital freight platform with its market-leading supply chain visibility data.

Armed with FourKites’ data and machine learning-driven estimated times of arrival, cargonerds can now ensure that its freight forwarders and their customers can track products across the end-to-end supply chain and know exactly when they’ll arrive at their destination. The integrated solution will track global shipments in real time across road, rail, ocean, air, parcel and last mile across the globe.

“FourKites has the largest global network of supply chain data and powerful machine learning on the planet,” Conrad Franchi, founder of cargonerds, said. “Their end-to-end solution enables us to give our customers the most accurate ETAs (estimated time of arrivals) and greater network collaboration. Having the right data at the right time to identify precisely what can be done is the only path to proactively mitigating issues while reducing costs and fees.”

Hamburg, Germany-based cargonerds — a spin-off of Rohlig Logistics — is a software development company that serves small and medium-sized freight forwarders. In 2022, cargonerds moved 250.000 ocean shipments, 250.000 air shipments and 150.000 road shipments. Their mission is to unlock the value of digital supply chains and thus make it accessible for smaller freight forwarders.

“Many times, small and medium sized freight forwarders don’t have access to services like supply chain visibility because they lack software development resources and implementation skills,” Conrad continued.

Now, cargonerd’s freight forwarders can send data about each shipment in transit directly and securely to their supply chain stakeholders. In doing so, their customers can streamline communication, more easily collaborate with partners and increase on-time deliveries.

“Our technology is perfectly suited for logistics service providers, and we’re thrilled to partner with cargonerds to expand our footprint globally,” Marc Boileau, FourKites’ Senior Vice President Sales, Network & Operations EMEA, said. “FourKites digitised solution will eliminate manual tracking from cargonerds’ network of freight forwarders and customers, saving significant time and resources and enabling them to shift focus to higher-value tasks.”

cargonerds will be showcasing its solution with FourKites and the value it brings to both carriers and shippers in a live webinar taking place on Wednesday, February 15. Register here.
