Alpega has partnered with FourKites as part of its strategic value-adding partner ecosystem.
The partnership delivers integrated real-time, in-transit freight tracking across all modes and serves Alpega customers of all industries and verticals, enabling improved visibility and reduced supply chain costs.
“Successful end-to-end supply chain planning and execution requires real-time visibility and dependable predictive ETAs,” said Matt Elenjickal, CEO at FourKites. “Our predictive visibility platform leverages machine learning and advanced analytics to provide supply chain professionals with the real-time data needed to make informed, trusted decisions, and to remain agile in the face of any circumstance.”
The partnership combines the modular, scalable transportation management solution, Alpega TMS, with FourKites’ global, multimodal real-time transportation visibility platform. With the largest integrated carrier-base, this integration gives Alpega customers enhanced live shipment tracking and visibility data directly linked to the transportation order in Alpega TMS, providing actionable insights to drive operational efficiencies across supply chain operations.
“Our strategy when it comes to partnerships, is to work with the best to complement our TMS product portfolio,” said Todd DeLaughter, CEO at Alpega Group. “Our partnership with FourKites will provide our customers globally with the critical transportation technology and valuable timely data they need to create a competitive advantage. We look forward to the opportunities this strategic relationship will provide our joint customer base.”
Alpega TMS brings transparency and efficiency to all trading partners across the supply chain through one shared data set and collaborative platform for managing all transportation workflows. Moreover, through its partnership with FourKites, Alpega TMS provides enhanced supply chain visibility across all transportation modes within logistics networks.
Customers can benefit from the Alpega TMS collaborative platform for managing the end-to-end transportation process – from sourcing through settlement – across simple to complex logistics networks; while FourKites provides the end-to-end, real-time predictive visibility and analytics for improved customer service and delivery exception management.
Having pioneered the application of predictive visibility to various aspects of supply chain operations, FourKites’ network now includes more than 400 of the world’s top shippers and their broker and carrier partners - including 18 of the top-20 food and beverage companies and nine of the top-10 CPG companies.

FourKites leverages data science breakthroughs and machine learning to provide real-time tracking of shipments across all modes of transportation in 80+ countries, and calculates the industry’s most accurate ETAs.
