AMSTERDAM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FourKites®, today publishes its global Premier Carrier List (PCL) for the fourth quarter of 2021. FourKites’ 12th consecutive quarterly list showcases the growing community of brokers, carriers and 3PLs worldwide who achieve the highest standards of visibility-related operational excellence across all modes of transport.
The total number of loads transported by PCL carriers on the FourKites platform grew over 10% from Q3 to Q4, to almost 4,000,000 across all industries. Nearly 400 carriers made the list in Q4, with particularly strong growth among European carriers, which now comprise nearly 20% of the list.
“We’re delighted to see the boost in European carriers who have qualified for the PCL,” says Jason Eversole, Vice President of Carrier Operations at FourKites. “More and more European carriers see supply chain visibility as an opportunity to grow their client’s businesses as well as their own.”
To qualify for the PCL, carriers must demonstrate an ability to provide high-quality, consistent and accurate data on the vast majority of their loads. This enables their shipper customers and other ecosystem partners to streamline operations, increase the speed of shipping dock turn times, reduce inventory levels and optimise labor costs.
Premier Carriers speak to program benefits:
