FourKites unveils Q2 2021 Global Premier Carrier list, including new entrants from Europe
FourKites, one of the world’s leading real-time supply chain visibility platforms according to Gartner, has published its Global Premier Carrier List for the second quarter of 2021.
The quarterly list, now into its 10th edition, showcases hundreds of forwarders, carriers and 3PLs worldwide that Fourkites believes have the highest standards of visibility-related operational excellence across all modes of transport.
This operational excellence, according to Fourkites, translates directly into hard returns for these Premier Carriers, who experienced on average a 13% increase in annual load volume compared to the previous quarter.
In addition, Fourkites says these Premier Carriers are providing their shipper customers and the broader supply chain ecosystem with data that is being leveraged to streamline operations, increase the speed of shipping dock turn times, reduce inventory levels and optimise labor costs.
Fourkites' Premier Carriers average 12% more in load volume than carriers who have not qualified for the list. Some of the new European carriers who have qualified for the list this quarter include Van den Bosch, Speedliner Logistics BV, Hope Sped SRL, AF Zust Ambrosetti SRL, Curt Richter SE, Santos e Vale and BDtrans.
A public-facing version of the Premier Carrier List is available here. Besides the new entrants referred to above, big names that were already list include Raben and Vlantana.
