CHICAGO, Ill. — September 21, 2017 — FourKites, the leading supply chain visibility platform, announced today that its real-time visibility solution is now available for the 2017 release of Manhattan Associates' Transportation Management System (TMS). The robust two-way integration is available for both cloud-based and on-premise versions of Manhattan's Transportation Planning and Execution solution, allowing Manhattan customers to access FourKites' complete real-time shipment tracking capabilities directly through the Manhattan interface.
