I have no visibility of my inventory when it’s in-transit.

Without visibility across multiple tiers of the supply chain, your company is unable to keep track of its constantly moving inventories. Worse, without the ability to collaborate and exchange information in real time, there is no way to manage material movements proactively or reroute shipments to accommodate for unexpected disruptions or shifts in demand.

My logistics costs are moving in the wrong direction—that is, up!

Inefficient shipment schedules, shipment delays and expedites, unreliable performance by third-party logistics providers (3PLs), and poor visibility into changing demand—all these variables work to keep logistics costs sky high. And bringing them back down to manageable levels is becoming increasingly complex. After all, the logistics function is more international and fast-paced than ever before, and consumers seem to have exponentially more options—and less patience.
