Freight Forecasting host Michael Vincent is joined by Tom Curee, the Senior Vice President of Strategy and Innovation at Kingsgate Logistics. Michael and Tom discuss data intelligence and how it helps provide Kingsgate Logistics with added value for its customers as well as other best practices for 3PLs using freight data.
Kingsgate Logistics was founded in 1986 and is headquartered in West Chester, Ohio. Kingsgate offers a full scope of logistics services facilitated by leading-edge technology, and provides truckload, less-than-truckload, expedited, intermodal and international shipping. Kingsgate has doubled in size in the past five years, all while investing in technology to support its customers and carriers following best in class best practices for 3PLs around freight data and technology.
Michael and Tom discuss various SONAR charts and data sets that Kingsgate Logistics uses regularly. According to Curee, Kingsgate uses many of the features of its SONAR subscription in its weekly market updates and intelligence-sharing with clients. Furthermore, by leveraging the SONAR API, KingsGate Logistics has built in automated workflows for their brokers to know when loads are easy to book or require more resources. Best practices for 3PLs using freight data result in faster decisions, but also efficiency in workflows that yield higher margins and happier shipper customers.
