Oil, Gas, and Chemicals
The oil, gas, and chemicals industries experience the same supply constraints and logistics challenges that plague so many industries today. Shortages for oil and gas include long delays for drill pipes, which slow down drilling, and casings needed to prevent negative environmental impacts. One missing component can stop delivery on meeting customer commitments and put contracts at risk. Logistics impacts on the chemical industry include shortages of rail cars, truck capacity, and high ‘less-than-truckload’ (LTL) costs. Regulations for shipping and exporting oil and gas and chemicals products create complexities, such as managing the business rules for each product type with impacts on global trade, routes, mixtures, and costs. E2open is helping optimize supply chains dealing with constrained supply, logistics complexities, and global trade compliance to minimize risk.
