[Buyer’s Guide] How to Choose a Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platform (RTTVP)

Questions to Ask When Evaluating Supply Chain Visibility Providers

The supply chain industry is ever-changing and expanding. In recent years, customer, shipper and carrier expectations have drastically increased resulting in the need for true end-to-end visibility to proactively address issues, achieve on-time and in-full (OTIF) deliveries and improve customer experience.

Gartner recently released their predictions for the future of supply chain technology and they said that “by 2022, 80% of shippers will invest in a RTTVP.”

If you are one of those shippers, you want to ensure that you’re making the right decision, that implementation and adoption go smoothly, and that your company quickly recognizes the ROI.
