A supply chain isn’t as simple as moving cargo from point A to point B. Once it is loaded onto a shipping container, cargo is transferred onto planes, trains and trucks to go to warehouses, distribution centers and retail outlets, with various ports and hand-offs in between, before ending up in our homes and offices.
We believe that having a complete view of the supply chain makes logistics decisions at the link level clearer. Making the best decisions requires having all the relevant information, but too much data leads to information overload.
When we looked at the solutions available in 2013, we noticed the similarities they have with the supply chain: fragmented and specialized. There are separate tools for tracking different modes; other tools offer analytics, but no tracking; all of the tools are too expensive and take too long to implement.
What business leaders really need is a comprehensive picture of the supply chain, including each leg of the journey, each transfer, any potential obstacle and what the next steps should be.Learn more about Weft™ solutions
