Neenah, WI - J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. and FourKites have joined forces to help shared customers make more proactive business decisions based on access to real-time location information.

The integration will allow customer GPS information to be communicated between J. J. Keller’s Encompass® Fleet Management System with ELogs and the FourKites tracking platform. This will provide the premium edition Encompass® customer with GPS data on active loads every 15 minutes from pickup to delivery in FourKites. Improving multimodal load visibility helps to reduce overall costs associated with check calls, detention time, and resource allocation.

“We are proud to partner with industry leading compliance provider, J. J. Keller,” said Craig Fiander, senior vice president, global business development for FourKites. “Seamless integration with the J. J. Keller Encompass® solution provides carriers, private fleets and 3PLs unprecedented omni-modal freight visibility within the FourKites platform. We are pleased to provide our mutual customers with the most accurate truck and load-specific ETAs and automated arrivals and departures using robust geo-fencing capabilities.”

“Our integration with FourKites allows our shared customers the ability to navigate with geo-fencing capabilities, making fleet dispatch and tracking more fluid,” said Tom Reader, director of marketing for J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “Consequently, we’re making it easier for customers to improve overall transportation management within their fleets, while helping them prepare for the mandate and meet Hours of Service requirements.”
