Carmel, IN 10 August 2021 — FourKites®, the world’s leading real-time supply chain visibility platform, has named KTL INC to its Premier Carrier List (PCL) for the second quarter of 2021. FourKites’ tenth consecutive quarterly list showcases the hundreds of brokers, carriers and 3PLs worldwide who are achieving the highest standards of visibility-related operational excellence across all modes of transport, as demonstrated by their ability to provide high-quality, consistent, accurate data on the vast majority of their loads.
“KTL INC is proud to be among this select group of carriers who understand the importance of improved tracking and performance for the supply chain and transportation industries. Working with FourKites to provide real-time transportation visibility to our customers is a tremendous value add for our team and our customers,” said Christopher Cada, Vice President, Operations and Strategic Accounts at KTL INC.

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 optimize labor costs. This operational excellence 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.
“KTL INC is a valued visibility partner to FourKites, and their status on the Premier Carrier List shows their steadfast commitment to providing visibility information that improves supply chain operations for their customers,” said Jason Eversole, Vice President of Carrier Operations at FourKites.
A public-facing version of the Premier Carrier List is available here. Customers and the public can now access and search the list through an updated interface that filters carriers according to capabilities, transportation modes, geographies serviced and other relevant criteria. In addition, users can view carriers that are registered partners in the US Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay® program — a new feature that FourKites introduced in its Q1 2021 Premier Carrier List.
