GEODIS, a third-party logistics company, recently launched GEODIS Visibility, a newplatform designed to provide its customers with a 360-degree view of data across multiple facets of the supply chain.
“Visibility is one of the single most important elements to a successful supply chain,” said Pal Narayanan, EVP and CIO of GEODIS in Americas. “Historically in the supply chain industry, companies were utilizing different platforms to view inventory, access shipment data, and track resources across multiple distribution centers and storefronts, which created a disconnect in information flow and led to decreased productivity. With GEODIS Visibility, we are bringing data together in a single view for customers that enables more intelligent decision making, smarter use of resources and, ultimately, a more efficient and productive supply chain.”
GEODIS Visibility provides a control tower view integrating multiple operational systems including warehouse management systems, transportation management systems, labor management systems and yard management systems to create a streamlined view of shipment across the supply chain. The GEODIS Visibility platform offers multiple options for customers to easily integrate with operational systems and provide a harmonized view of the supply chain. In addition to bringing all of this data together, GEODIS Visibility works with parcel carriers, less-than-truckload and truckload carriers and ocean carriers to provide shipment "In Transit” views for customers.
GEODIS Visibility features include:
Beyond shipment tracking, the platform allows customers to execute reports on demand. GEODIS Visibility also provides users with both a strategic and tactical view of inventory across facilities for planning purposes. Strategic dashboards provide insights such as freight analytics, cost-to-serve analysis and carrier performance data for users to quickly view, export and analyze.
