FourKites, the world's leading real-time supply chain visibility platform, has named USA Truck, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAK), a leading capacity solutions provider headquartered in Van Buren, Ark., to its 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 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.
In addition, Premier Carriers' pervasive use of real-time visibility data provides their shipper customers and other ecosystem partners with the ability to streamline operations, increase the speed of shipping dock turn times, reduce inventory levels and optimize labor costs.
"Qualifying for FourKites' Premier Carrier List is an important distinction as supply chain leaders increasingly look to visibility technologies to help them manage through ongoing disruptions and volatility," said Jason Eversole, Vice President of Carrier Operations at FourKites. "Congratulations to USA Truck on this great achievement. We thank them for their continued partnership and commitment to providing critical visibility information."
A public-facing version of the Premier Carrier List is available here, where users can filter the list by capability, transportation mode, geographies served and other relevant criteria.
