“These enhancements to real-time tracking and analytics provide the visibility needed across transportation processes, tightening execution, while continuing to extend the value that customers derive from the JDA platform."

FourKites, the market leader in supply chain visibility and predictive analytics, today announced continued enhanced integration within JDA Transportation Management, including real-time ocean shipment tracking, enhanced LTL tracking capabilities, trailer temperature monitoring and alerts, and SKU-level shipment tracking.

“These enhancements to real-time tracking and analytics provide the visibility needed across transportation processes, tightening execution, while continuing to extend the value that customers derive from the JDA platform,” said Fabrizio Brasca, GVP, solution executives at JDA Software. “These enhancements enable us to continue delivering the latest world-class supply chain technology tools that augment the power of JDA solutions.”

“As the real-time supply chain visibility and analytics platform with the most enterprise shippers and global logistics service providers, FourKites’ product enhancements will empower JDA customers to make the best supply chain planning and execution decisions,” said Craig Fiander, senior vice president, global business development at FourKites. “We are proud to partner with JDA to deliver this market-leading omni-modal predictive intelligence.”

The JDA-FourKites enhancements include:

  • Ocean Tracking: FourKites ocean tracking now utilizes JDA event notification to deliver enhanced ocean container tracking. Information related to intermediate ports, port addresses and location codes is used to improve data precision. This enables improvements in current location updates and ETA calculations.
  • Temperature Tracking: FourKites temperature tracking utilizes sensor information to track and send alerts for temperature-sensitive freight. Information from JDA event notification is matched to temperature definitions in the FourKites system. Temperature tracking data is sent to JDA systems at a defined interval, triggering an alert when it falls outside of customized thresholds.
  • LTL Tracking: FourKites delivers enhanced LTL tracking through expanded LTL data integrations, which broaden the network of LTL data sources, providing real-time LTL tracking updates to JDA customers.
  • SKU-level Data: Searching for shipments at the SKU-level is now easier through the JDA-FourKites integration. FourKites maps reference numbers and SKU data from JDA event notification files.

FourKites is proud to be the Platinum sponsor of the JDA FOCUS 2018 conference for global leaders in the manufacturing, wholesale distribution, transportation and logistics, retail and services industries. FourKites is at Booth 24 at the conference, and will be presenting a customer case study: Driving Customer Success Through End-to-End Visibility, Tuesday May 8th at 2:45 p.m.
