A supply chain is a system of organizations, people, activities, information, and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer. Effective management of the supply chain requires the commitment of supply chain partners to work closely to coordinate order generation, order taking and order fulfillment.

Jetstack Announces Industry-First Software Supply Chain Security Toolkit

Jetstack | May 18, 2022

Jetstack, a Venafi company and leader in cloud native, open source and strategic consulting services, announced the availability of an easy-to-use, interactive and comprehensive toolkit for securing modern software supply chains. The visual, web-based resource is available to everyone and is designed to help organizations evaluate and plan the crucial steps they need to tackle effective software supply chain security. Software supply chain security has become an increasingly critical issue for all organizations. After the attack against Solar Winds at the end of 2020 that affected over 1800 companies, software supply chain attacks increased over 300 percent in 2021.Most organizations now understand the urgency and importance of improving the security of the software they consume and produce, said Matthew Bates, chief technology officer for Jetstack. The problem is that it's very challenging to identify and prioritize the changes that need to be made whilst also managing the competing priorities of their development and security communities. It's very difficult to figure out how to continually improve development velocity and reduce time to deployment while, at the same time, improve control, visibility and security. Our toolkit helps development and security teams quickly figure out where to start by identifying the difficulty and impact connected to specific security controls. The Software Supply Chain toolkit consolidates advice and recommendations from multiple frameworks and whitepapers that each provide comprehensive guidance for software supply chain security including: CNCF ‘Software Supply Chain Best Practices’ whitepaper The Linux Foundation SLSA (Supply-chain Levels for Software Artifacts) NIST Guidance on Executive Order 14028 Improving Software Supply Chain Security Venafi blueprint for building secure software development pipelines The interactive toolkit presents the guidance from these frameworks broken down into four key areas: build pipelines, source code, provenance and deployment. Recommendations from each section include insights on priority and complexity along with links to the original open source toolsets that can help with that specific recommendation. “Software supply chain attacks target a whole range of vulnerabilities at different points in the software life cycle, Solving these challenges requires going through a whole range of controls that go well beyond a software bill of materials (SBOMs), which is just one of the 54 recommendations. The Software Supply Chain toolkit is a new type of collaboration with the open source community designed to help the industry develop proactive and preventative solutions that are purpose built for existing and emerging development processes.” -Steve Judd, senior solutions architect for Jetstack and the developer of the toolkit Visit https://jetstack.io/software-supply-chain/ to view the toolkit.

Shippeo and Everysens Enhance Intermodal Visibility Offering With Strategic Partnership

Shippeo | June 14, 2022

Shippeo, a leading provider of global and multimodal shipment visibility, has partnered with Everysens, a leader in rail and intermodal transport management systems, to enhance their multimodal transport visibility offering. Everysens will provide Shippeo with the most reliable rail ETA available on the market, based on real-time data from satellite tracking and rail operators.The two-way partnership allows Everysens to also benefit from Shippeo’s large network of road and ocean carriers, providing high quality shipment tracking data to rail and intermodal shippers and their customers. By sharing container events for ocean shipments, as well as highly accurate and reliable road freight ETAs, Everysens can better anticipate impacts on rail logistics. In turn, Shippeo receives a stream of rail events from Everysens, including ETAs, GPS positions and loading statuses. Everysens provides ETAs for both full trains and single wagons; a unique capability within the market. The improved visibility across all types of rail transport will be available globally for Shippeo customers. In addition, Everysens covers the full transport process, including tendering, collaborative smart planning, freight letters and CO2 emissions. By integrating their respective shipment ETAs, both companies are able to offer their customers improved end-to-end visibility in a single offering, creating new opportunities for supply chain convergence and benefitting shippers with a higher level of supply chain transparency and optimised logistics flows. “As shippers face more and more supply chain challenges around the world as a result of disruptive global events, they want to know when their shipments will reach their final destination, With sustainability playing an increasingly important role in transportation management, rail is becoming a popular means of intermodal transport. However, visibility over rail shipments has not been easy for shippers to achieve. The partnership between Shippeo and Everysens increases shippers’ trust in rail and multimodal deliveries, providing them with critical monitoring milestones, as well as the ability to measure and improve their processes.” -Lucien Besse, COO and Co-founder at Shippeo Rail is already an important part of multimodal logistics. Effects of the EU Green Deal are quickly positioning rail further as the future of freight,” says Dr. Youness Lemrabet, CEO and Founder of Everysens. “The target is clear: 30% modal share for rail by 2030, with an estimated impact of 290 million tons of CO2 saved. To reach this, rail needs newcomers, for whom intermodal is the primary entry point. With this partnership, we can connect the dots between rail and first- and last-mile transport modes, to make modal shift truly happen. About Shippeo Shippeo is a global leader in real-time multimodal transportation visibility, helping major shippers and logistics service providers operate more collaborative, automated, sustainable, profitable, and customer-centric supply chains with highly accurate, real-time operational visibility and perfect workflow orchestration.
