Shipment and inventory visibility repeatedly tops the list of must-haves in surveys as freight shippers scramble to build resilience and agility into their supply chains.
Visibility demands complete, timely and accurate data, generated by end-to-end supply chain partners and third-party data providers. Granular, real-time data helps shippers capture downstream demand signals and spot potential upstream sourcing or production issues early; precisely track shipments and inventory across the network, and shorten response time to redirect assets and product where needed.
Control towers are cloud-based portals integrated with ERP systems to help supply chain partners make sense of complex supply chain data. Towers standardize data from multiple sources for a single, shared view of the network. Visualization tools display network operations in user-friendly graphic form and enable configured views to support user specificity. AI-enabled analytics monitor network performance and optimize workflow and processes.
