DAT Selects Leading Supply Chain Visibility Platform FourKites to Provide Unparalleled Transparency and Visibility into Truckload Freight

DAT Freight & Analytics, North America's biggest truckload freight marketplace, and FourKites®, the world's leading real-time supply chain visibility platform, announced a strategic partnership today that will offer real-time, end-to-end supply chain visibility to the DAT network. The collaboration will enable brokers to improve their customer service while also strengthening their ties with carriers, reducing the need for check-calls and ETA management. It will also make it possible for carriers to swiftly integrate tracking via ELD or tracking applications.

The partnership offers DAT clients valuable new insight into the status of their loads as they move from dock to dock, including predictive ETAs and wait time data at more than 1 million shipper ports across North America. Access to real-time visibility data was shown to save operational costs, boost on-time performance, and create stronger customer relationships.

Additionally, carriers will have access to FourKites' Partner Hub from within the DAT platform, the industry's first ELD onboarding solution that fulfills brokers' and carriers' needs for total transparency, advanced security, and user controls. Trucks on the FourKites platform will be immediately identifiable to shippers and freight brokers in the DAT network, giving DAT customers access to the largest pool of “trackable” capacity on the spot market.
