Global supply chain visibility has been an elusive goal for over 20 years, but today’s “Amazon Effect” coupled with the capacity crisis is creating more pressure on supply chains than ever before. This means the ability to view, analyze and communicate multimodal visibility data in real time is critical to improving financial and service KPIs.
Utilizing new technologies such as ELDs, telematics, and logistics networks will help produce results and enable dramatic visibility improvements; driving fundamental changes to the modern supply chain.
You will learn to:
Identify the biggest areas of payback in your transportation operation
Ensure you get maximum coverage and compliance from your carriers
Apply customer success examples to your operation
Extend the value to customers and partners
Deliver value rapidly
Assess the capabilities of a global freight visibility solution

We’re in a major component shortage. The electronics industry is currently experiencing the most extreme component scarcity in over a decade. Lead times on passive-components products have drastically increased as a result, with some suppliers quoting as far out 52 weeks +1. The shortage and its impact is so widespread that the Electronic Components Supply Network (ECSN) is urging electronics buyers to “review their outlook on lead times for components amid surging global demand and reports of allocation risks on certain products.” This is a long-term sourcing challenge that industry analysts see lasting beyond the new year. Many organizations have responded to the supply deficit by double- and triple-ordering components, but this has only aggravated the problem further. Suppliers are starting to allocate their inventory, resulting in massive lead times and increased prices. A shortage of this magnitude isn’t simply caused by increased demand. Industry experts see a number of large-scale changes that are contributing to a “perfect storm” of product scarcity.

Pay attention to your supply planning processes—or risk financial and regulatory peril.
The consequences of failing to connect the loss of control of the supply plan to regulatory problems is often overlooked by pharmaceutical manufacturers. It’s the “dirty little secret” few people in the industry ever acknowledge.
As a result, companies fail to fix supply planning problems. The implications of this failure can be devastating to customer service, financial performance, and stock price.
Presenter Tom Strohl will explore how poorly functioning supply planning processes almost always lead to supply chain disruptions and serious compliance flaws. Symptoms of poor supply planning processes will also be examined.
You will learn what good business processes look like, allowing you to gain control of your business, by examining:
Best practice Integrated Business Planning and Integrated Planning and Control
How to secure stability in the operation
How you can take your process to the next level
What driving towards world class performance looks like

Learn how IoT technology is improving real-time supply chain visibility for increased supply chain performance and efficiency. Implementing proactive solutions to track, manage, and induce action – in real time – mitigates the risks associated with supply chain disruptions during transit.
Real-time shipment visibility is universally desired by shippers, carriers and customers, but its actual, hard, bottom-line dollar value is rarely discussed. That means it often remains as a nice-to-have rather than a must-have – a bit like a gleaming new office or a pricey client lunch. You know it’s most likely having a good effect on business, but the tendency is to regard it as an ineffable benefit that can’t be measured.
This is old thinking and it’s largely wrong. Further, allowing a belief that you can’t put hard figures against the benefits of a real-time shipment visibility system to prevent you from implementing one is likely to put you at a disadvantage against your competition. That’s because it’s increasingly clear that improved visibility leads directly to better customer service – one of the strongest competitive differentiators out there now.
Logistics and transportation managers now have a far stronger argument than ever before when it comes to convincing C-level executives to green-light buying and installing a real-time visibility system. They can now clearly demonstrate why the up-front expenditure and operational disruption involved in making the most of available visibility technologies can be justified.
Read this special report today to learn about building a business case for real-time shipment visibility.
