BDP International selects Four Kites
BDP International (BDP), a privately-owned global logistics and transportation services company, has engaged Four Kites to design solutions for predictive shipment visibility across the supply chain. This endeavour will improve the performance of BDP's visibility platform, BDP Smart Suite.
Predictive tracking will enable programmed alerts to BDP and its customers, forewarning them when a container is likely to miss an inland cut-off, or is sitting idle for an extended period of time, or when a dray provider may be late for a scheduled appointment, for instance.
Using advanced technology and data insights, Four Kites provides more accurate figures to project actual departures and arrivals.
Mike Andaloro, president and COO, said: "Our customers stand to reap the benefits of more precise and predictive ETAs, thereby improving visibility and providing added cost savings across the entire supply chain." (mw)
