New Flip Phone Fleet Tracking from FourKites

In what feels like a back-to-the-future technology advance, location tracking company FourKites has expanded its platform to cover the small segment of truck drivers still using flip phones and other non-smartphones.

FourKites stands out in the industry by providing an inexpensive and comprehensive tracking platform for brokers and shippers. FourKites flip phone tracking service is only $1 per load and smartphone tracking through their app CarrierLink is FREE for brokers up to 2,500 loads per month.
“Any broker that’s paying $5 per load for mobile phone tracking needs to know that they have a cheaper option,” said CEO Matt Elenjickal. “We’ve expanded our platform to track flip phones to accommodate the brokers who need to track their drivers who don’t have smartphones. Freight brokers are the backbone of the industry, and we’re committed to supporting their efforts to connect with shippers and carriers by lowering, and sometimes eliminating, unnecessary tracking costs.”

FourKites real-time location tracking gives shippers, brokers, and 3rd party logistics companies full visibility over all of their freight loads moving in their supply chain network. FourKites geo-fencing detects arrivals and departures to notify users by email, in the FourKites dashboard, or their transportation management software (TMS). Drivers can snap photos of documents and share them as well. FourKites CarrierLink app also allows drivers to turn off tracking with the touch of a button.

FourKites load tracking products are designed to increase driver safety by eliminating check calls and limiting driver distraction. Brokers can enhance customer service by having real-time information at their fingertips, and improve their drivers’ and their own experiences by eliminating check calls and wait time at loading docks.
