Toronto, Ontario – December 8, 2016 – FourKites, Inc., a comprehensive real-time tracking platform provider, today announced the availability of FourKites on the Geotab Marketplace, a scalable and reliable source for top organizations requiring GPS fleet management and vehicle tracking solutions.
Geotab customers can share real-time location information of specific loads with internal and external customers, allowing shipping and receiving locations to plan in advance for arrivals, streamline loading and unloading, reduce wait times, and get the truck back on the road efficiently. As one of the most secure and reliable tracking providers for shippers and 3PL’s, FourKites allows Geotab customers to provide high-quality customer service.
