Logistics

CHALLENGES

Today’s global, consumer-driven marketplace is spurring increased volatility, costs, and complexity throughout the supply chain.

In order to successfully navigate this highly complicated and competitive industry landscape, logistics providers need to be able to effectively manage consumer demand, supplier networks, inventory and operating costs, currency and commodity price fluctuations, as well as unexpected disruptions.

The ultimate goal for logistics companies is to deliver service excellence for customers and value for stakeholders – and to achieve this, they must be able to foster integration, collaboration, and agility throughout their end-to-end supply chain operations.

The logistics industry has entered an era of unprecedented technological transformation, as more and more firms are adopting innovative planning, execution, and optimization technologies to automate their supply chain management processes.

While innovations such as drone delivery and IoT integration are making headlines, behind the scenes, many logistics providers have been implementing cutting-edge advanced planning and scheduling (APS) solutions that are driving greater supply chain efficiency, visibility, and flexibility.
