Aljex Integrates with FourKites

Valuable Real-time, Telematics Data Now Available to Aljex Users

 

Middlesex, N.J., and Chicago, Ill. — February 17, 2015 — Aljex Software and FourKites, Inc. have announced a partnership that vastly improves the ability of freight brokers and shippers to access truck locations and status with real-time data from the industry’s largest telematics providers.

 

Information-rich carrier tracking from FourKites is now integrated into the industry-leading, hosted transportation management software from Aljex. That means Aljex customers can access much of the same real-time truck locations and ETAs as carriers themselves, without leaving the Aljex system.

 

“Integration with FourKites puts the services of the industry’s largest telematics and mobile communications providers to work for Aljex customers,” said Aljex CEO Tom Heine. “We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with FourKites.”

 

Unlike other tracking options available to freight brokers and 3PLs, FourKites does not depend on a driver’s personal or company-issued cell phone and a downloaded app. Instead, FourKites has agreements with the leading telematics providers to the trucking industry, including industry giants Omnitracs and PeopleNet, among others.

 

With these agreements in place, FourKites only requires authorization from the individual carrier to make the carrier’s tracking information available to brokers in real time. That information includes pickup confirmation, geo-fencing data, real-time locations, and ETAs. For Aljex users, FourKites information is quickly and seamlessly available on Aljex screens.

 

“The most successful and efficient truck fleets in North America are equipped with installed telematics systems that provide end-to-end tracking, alerts, and confirmations not available from other sources,” said FourKites founder Mathew Joseph Elenjickal. “Aljex customers will be pleased with the competitive advantage they derive from the valuable information FourKites can give them.”
