“We’ve talked for years at conferences and industry gatherings about the potential of sharing capacity on our overlapping lanes, but the technology we needed to make it happen was never quite ready. Now that it is, the sky is the limit.” Coca-Cola North America
“We have data within our four walls, but we don’t understand everyone else’s data, and the back and forth used to really slow us down. To me, the biggest thing that has changed is visibility. We can work faster — together — if we have visibility to each other’s data.” Land O’Lakes
