Product mix and types and fulfillment demands change quickly, and there is great complexity being constantly injected into the supply chain. The product may need to shift destination, merge in transit, and be broken into smaller groupings. A lack of visibility into inventory slows these processes and puts companies in danger of not meeting promised delivery dates and levels of service.
Goals and Objectives
The goal of this use case is to dramatically reduce the lead time of bringing inventory to market in new formats or groupings by providing a platform, whereby each entity has visibility to relevant information.
Enterprise hardware, personal devices, cloud, big data and analytics, blockchain, mobile, connectivity services, and transportation management systems
Use Case Summary
Via the use of a common platform, there is improved collaboration through networkwide visibility across suppliers, manufacturers, logistics providers, transportation partners, and retailers.
