You can’t fix what you can’t see, and that includes your supply chain. The right supply chain management platform gives you--and all stakeholders--visibility into your entire supply chain: every process, every bottleneck, every piece of inventory, every shipment.
As early as 2017, according to Supply & Demand Chain Executive, thinking was shifting from a linear point of view to one informed by networked, systemic logic. It’s a fundamental shift that points toward an adaptable and resilient supply chain powered by connected information and advanced analytics.
System integration from formerly disparate sources connects the dots to enable real-time analysis, informed decision-making, and more decisive, data-driven actions across the entire supply chain. Full transparency means you maintain complete control.
Logistics goals include reducing costs, improving service and compliance, optimizing loads and routes, and providing full visibility for all stakeholders. This solves several pain points, including capacity and demand volatility, customs delays, security risks, and minimizing increasing freight rates.
Storage and inventory control
Successful inventory control requires improving inventory efficiency, order accuracy, and cycle times, and solve the material-flow challenge and the many related issues, such as SKU proliferation, tight delivery windows, change management, and inventory loss/detention.
Outbound and reverse logistics
Streamlined operations during this stage help you better meet customer needs by integrating warehouse management systems and providing real-time visibility for your shipments as they move through the supply chain.
You’ll better meet customer expectations, avoid incomplete orders, and get a handle on increasing freight rates. You’ll find return management easier and identify lanes to bring inventory back to your distribution centers.
Supply chain complexity will not decrease; they’re more vulnerable than ever to risk and disruption, which poses significant threats to our business. Moving products from the raw-material stage to the end user requires end-to-end efficiency that provides a seamlessly integrated transportation and logistics solution.
E-commerce growth and today’s supply chain landscape has made completely visible, dynamic, omnichannel supply chains essential for companies’ survival. A fully integrated supply chain also offers a competitive advantage by reducing costs, mitigating risks, overcoming disruption, and improving customer service.
