The key to supply chain optimization lies in the ability to integrate the appropriate software platforms. Procurement and shipping managers are collaborating with TMS and other platforms to increase productivity and profitability. The pandemic has brought forth many areas of improvement that managers may have overlooked. And digitalization of all processes is finally reaching maturity and enabling more supply chain collaboration and optimization.
As noted by Supply Chain Game Changer, “Supply chain collaboration is a hot topic today and no wonder: companies that collaborate effectively across the supply chain have enjoyed dramatic reductions in inventories and costs, together with improvements in speed, service levels, and customer satisfaction.” The new age of e-commerce forces companies to look at the systems currently used and upgrade them to stay competitive. Supply chain optimization is dependent on these factors.
