Managing Global Logistics Means Considering More Risks and Volatility
Global Logistics Leads to More Variability and Trouble in Demand Planning
Longer Supply Chains Often Lack Visibility
Language and Cultural Barriers Remain
Deploying a Global Transportation Management Platform Solves the Challenges
- Data-driven capabilities help manage volatility. Since the TMS gives you better control over all your transportation data, shippers and users can apply this data to handle fluctuations and changes in demand.
- Decreased variability. More information further improves the ability to ensure actual activities reflect planned activities.
- Improved, centralized controls increase visibility. Breaking down data silos, and sharing information through a centralized TMS increases visibility, improving responsiveness along the way.
- Cross-border use ensures compliance with applicable regulations, as well as overcoming language and cultural barriers. Keeping all documents and compliance measures within the TMS improves compliance and eliminates concerns over language and cultural barriers.
- Advanced systems rely on EDI and APIs to connect to “incompatible” systems. Modern systems can communicate automatically and reduce the risk of lost information, while also optimizing scheduling and management.
- Cloud-based platforms transcend the limits of traditional, on-premise solutions. Relying on the cloud ensures global access and reduces the risk of disruption following an adverse effect, including weather-related disasters and trade conflicts.
