FourKites partnership delivers real-time supply chain data to RCS Logistics

Supply chain data company FourKites has announced a partnership with RCS Logistics, to provide RCS customers with automated, real-time visibility into the status and location of shipments across ocean, air, and intermodal transport modes.

Since deploying the FourKites platform, including its Dynamic Ocean system, RCS says it has achieved twelve-fold growth in its ocean freight business.

“We are known in the industry as a leading air freight forwarder. With FourKites, we’ve been able to elevate our ocean freight experience, and connect the dots with other modes, to truly differentiate ourselves in the market,” said Brian Aldridge, SVP Sales at RCS.

RCS’s data analysts are now leveraging FourKites’ analytics to gain better insights into on-time performance, dwell and detention costs, and to support continuous improvement in the company’s operations.

“We are thrilled to partner with a leader like RCS Logistics, which shares our vision for automated, interconnected and collaborative digital global supply chains, end to end,” said Brad Klaus, Group Vice President, International Solutions, at FourKites.

“Our work together illustrates how we integrate across the supply chain ecosystem to modernise operations and provide a superior customer experience in the process.”
