Ferrero USA has revealed that it has chosen to use the automatic learning platform developed by FourKites to track both outgoing and incoming loads on maritime, partial and full batch loads.
FourKites has been a pioneer in the transition from industry to real-time visibility for the past 5 years. Its activities allow shippers to optimize their supply chains and improve on-time delivery based on predictive information as well as actionable data.
According to Ferrero USA’s vice president of supply chain, Glenn Lawse, the brand is constantly looking for approaches to improve customer satisfaction and ensure efficient deliveries. Ferrero believe that it has become essential to go beyond traditional traceability systems for real-time monitoring of transport, with the unequaled level of productivity and drivers.
To identify opportunities for long-term improvement and optimization, other tools from FourKites, such as Insights and Bechmarking, will also be used by Ferrero. The package forms a suite of advanced analysis tools that identify key trends in areas such as carrier punctuality, retention time and variability between lanes.
