The FourKites platform will enable Westlake to enhance its logistics and customer service offerings. Through the introduction of real-time shipment tracking across North America.

FourKites integrates with the SAP Business Network and SAP ERP and is available on the SAP Store.

The FourKites platform will extract data from the Westlake Global Compound technology stack. Enabling it to gain visibility of every SKU, Shipment, order and facility. The FourKites platform will then deliver visibility of truck shipments live. Thus enabling the company to identify whether there are delays in customer deliveries or inbound goods to its factories in real-time. That visibility will enable customer-facing and procurement teams to analyse the disruption. They will then take mitigating actions, such as sourcing alternatives and communicating with the relevant stakeholders.
