Manufacturing in Today’s Omni-Modal World

The performance of a manufacturing business is built on the back of efficient and accurate replenishment of materials throughout the production life cycle. To succeed requires a modern and advanced approach to supply chain logistics.Visibility into transport logistics becomes a pivot point in achieving competitive performance. Therefore, being able to see into the dynamic transportation logistics “window” and respond proactively is critical to overall success.

  • Proactively manage exceptions of outbound loads, only giving the “at risk” loads the manual attention needed to get delivery back on track.
  • Increase communication and collaboration from manufacturing to end-customer delivery.
  • Streamline shipping and receiving processes to limit merchandise stock-out or staff disruptions using real-time inventory location.
