EROAD Embraces Supply Chain Transparency By Facilitating Seamless Data Sharing Between its Carrier Customers and Shippers

CHICAGO, Dec. 7, 2017 /CNW/ -- FourKites, the market leader in end-to-end supply chain visibility for shippers and 3PLs, today announced that EROAD has joined the FourKites ELD Certification Program, an initiative to encourage business practices that facilitate supply chain data transparency.

EROAD is an intuitive, driver-friendly ELD designed to capture accurate data automatically, receive real-time notifications and reports, and manage IFTA reporting with ease – all from one platform. EROAD enables customers to achieve FMCSA compliance with the ELD mandate, run a safer and more efficient fleet, and reduce the burdens and costs associated with manual paperwork.

"EROAD is committed to setting the standard for simple, intuitive ELD compliance that puts the customer first," said Norm Ellis, President of EROAD North America. "We're excited to be recognized for providing quality, accessible data and exceptional value to our customers as they transition from paper logs to ELDs."

FourKites believes that certifying trusted ELD providers to its Partner Program will encourage shippers and 3PLs to help their carriers select ELD providers that comply with industry standards and support direct data sharing. That, in turn, helps those carriers fulfill mandatory visibility requirements in the most effective and fficient way.

"FourKites is pleased to recognize EROAD for its leadership in making supply chains run more efficiently through its open architecture platform," said Craig Fiander, Senior Vice President, Global Business Development for FourKites. "Data transparency has become foundational for any ELD provider that is delivering maximum customer satisfaction and compliance.

FourKites certifies ELD providers based on four categories:

  • Data quality – provides secure and continuously updated real-time flow of, at a minimum, location information
  • Data accessibility – enables customers to access high-quality data without paying add-on integration, support or other fees
  • Operational integrity – values integrity in practices around customer data
  • Customer value – prioritizes customer success and works collaboratively to help customers achieve maximum value
