FourKites Hires Fiander to Lead Firm’s Integration Efforts

Load-tracking technology firm FourKites has hired Craig Fiander as senior vice president of business development to lead the company’s global integration and partnership efforts.

Fiander was previously vice president of strategic alliances for the enterprise solutions business unit at ALK Technologies, a provider of mileage, routing and navigation software.

Chicago-based FourKites’ technology is designed to give shippers and third-party logistics firms greater visibility to their freight by tracking loads through carriers’ electronic logging devices and drivers’ mobile phones.

“With so many technology startups in the transportation and logistics industry, it's been very impressive to see the adoption of FourKites’ solution by a significant number of large shippers and logistics services providers,” Fiander said. “I look forward to working with the FourKites team to expand their alliances and transform the industry.”
