Among these were paperless document processing, customer notifications, enhanced instant messaging, and capabilities for retailers that enable them to track last-mile shipments from local warehouses to outlets. Just two weeks after the COVID outbreak in the U.S., FourKites introduced a publicly available live network congestion map that spotlights cross-border freight movements across North America, Mexico, and Europe; port delays; and interstate transit metrics, as well as free services to better support shippers, carriers, and drivers with data and transparency.

FourKites Risks and Challenges
FourKites faces formidable challenges not only from competitors including Shippeo, Descartes, and Transporeon, but from headwinds arising from the pandemic. Early in the COVID-19 crisis, Amazon and other eCommerce retailers were forced to restrict the amount of inventory suppliers could send to their warehouses. Ecommerce order volume increased by 50% compared with 2019, and shipment times for products like furniture more than doubled in March 2020. Overall, U.S. digital sales have jumped by 30%, expediting the online shopping transition by as much as two years.
