The supply chain visibility company’s 11th consecutive quarterly list showcases the burgeoning community of brokers, carriers, and 3PLs worldwide who are achieving the highest standards of visibility-related operational excellence across all modes of transport, the company said. The number of PCL-certified carriers is up more than 50% in the last two quarters as more companies rely on FourKites and real-time visibility to keep goods flowing amid ongoing supply chain disruptions and capacity shortages.“It's an honor for Global Spedition to be a part of the FourKites Premier Carrier List,” said Emilio Gomariz, general manager at Global Spedition, a tank truck company based in Spain.
FourKites Premier Carriers have demonstrated an ability to provide high-quality, consistent, and accurate data on the vast majority of their loads, outperforming non-PCL carriers by 50%, according to FourKites. In addition, Premier Carriers’ pervasive use of real-time visibility data provides their shipper customers and the broader supply chain ecosystem with the ability to streamline operations, increase the speed of shipping dock turn times, reduce inventory levels and optimize labor costs.
“We are very pleased to see continued growth and interest in our Premier Carrier List,” said Jason Eversole, vice president of carrier operations at FourKites. “Even during this time of high capacity and overwhelming demand, more carriers than ever are achieving our high standards of excellence and providing critical business value through visibility data that empowers their customers to be agile and resilient.”
