Dynamic decision making is the foundation of every successful supply chain.
To achieve this, customers need access to accurate, actionable data.
To get transaction-level data, shippers and 3PLs connect to a variety of online sources, creating strong, unique technological bonds between a carrier and its customers.
Technical innovators are creating new markets and services by the aggregation, standardization, and orchestration of these transactional services while adding more analytical, industrial-strength APIs into the equation.
When combined with progress in data science and the Internet of Things, technology companies that add value to direct-to-carrier APIs and combine them with high-power data analytics will create new concepts for the information economy.
