The Power of Supply Chain Visibility

If your orders never change, promise dates are always 100% accurate and your warehouse or distribution center runs like a finely oiled machine, there really is no need to read any further.

But if you are like most companies, you are struggling to achieve visibility and control over your supply chain to effectively manage your cost of goods and consistently meet the expectations of your internal and external customers.

If we accept as a state of play that everything is subject to change both for legitimate business reasons, fate, and occasional negligence, then we are at least prepared to cope.

But there is a way to leverage technology that provides a platform where suppliers, carriers, and their customers are not only sharing information but also dynamically planning and executing their logistics operations collaboratively.

Supply Chain Visibility Makes All Stakeholders More Efficient

The key to supply chain visibility is a common system that all stakeholders can use to plan their moves, be alerted to changes as they occur and make real-time adjustments to keep the supply chain moving smoothly.

From initial order (promise dates, order changes, dynamic dock scheduling) to arrival times, stakeholders need to see every status update, as it occurs, to react proactively and keep all operations running effectively.

This is not just about one company’s operation becoming more efficient. By sharing a common system, the company’s suppliers can plan more effectively to provide better customer service and the carriers can move in and out of deliveries quickly and efficiently, making their operations more cost-effective.
