Reaching End-to-End Supply Chain Visibility

Complexity in supply chains is a given in today’s global environment.

This is part one of a two-part series on end-to-end supply chain visibility

End-to-end visibility is a “must have” not a “nice to have” in order for organizations to effectively communicate, proactively solve problems and provide the level of service expected from both partner organizations and customers.  Unfortunately, many organizations struggle with full visibility.

Survey Findings
A recent Transport Intelligence survey indicated that not having supply chain visibility was the number one challenge for logistics stakeholders in 2014; only 16.9 percent of respondents felt they have end-to-end visibility into their supply chain, including insight into partners.

Whitepaper: Supply Chain Risk and Visibility in the Movement of Goods
Across all transportation geography, more than 80% of respondents indicated that shipments were either stable or increasing, highlighting that providers are operating in a positive sum environment.

More than half (51.5%) of those surveyed are seeing global shipments increase, the largest of any geography, while just 17.2% of respondents were seeing a decreasing amount of global shipments – the lowest of any geography and suggesting that demand is originating across multiple regions.

Cloud Solutions Accelerate Visibility Attainment
Organizations can consider deploying cloud technology that helps capture, report and leverage important benchmarking data and provides insight into supply chain performance. These cloud solutions must have analytics platforms that allow you to assess partners, be informed on risk management and analyze the system’s effects on profit margins. As more and more technology moves into the cloud, organizations can reap the benefits of anytime, anyplace, anywhere access to data. An added benefit of cloud technology is that it enables organizations to reduce upfront costs and save on onsite maintenance down the line.

Enterprise-Scale Capabilities without the IT Overhead
Logistics service providers, shippers, manufacturers, retailers and distributors can all benefit from technology that is designed for fast implementation and on-demand access, like Kewill MOVE® on the Cloud. This system gives you the tools you need to manage your, or your customers’, growing supply chain ecosystem. Small-to-medium sized businesses with an increasingly more complex supply chain execution problems to solve, can utilize enterprise-scale capabilities but without the IT overhead and large upfront expense.
