Your challenge is to know where your cargo is. When it’s on the move in a trailer or a container. When it’s stored in a warehouse. Outdoors, geolocation is easy to get. But indoors, when satellites are out of sight, alternative location technologiesare needed. By combining Wifi and Sigfox network infrastructure, in partnership with ALPS global device manufacturer, IBM has set up a simple and cost-efficient solution that succeeds in seamlessly tracking any shipment along the supply chain, in both outdoor and indoor environments.
Organizations with even moderately complex multinational supply chains face significant challenges in today's increasingly complex trade and commerce reality:
- Dealing with a market-driven proliferation of SKUs
- Growing use of contract manufacturers
- Proliferation of commerce channels
- A more uncertain trade environment
- Unprecedented market volatility
- Impact and cost of ongoing legal, regulatory and taxation changes
In this webinar, Joe Bellini (One Network Enterprises) explains how you can leverage network effects at scale, within your operations and across trading partners. Learn how you too can radically simplify and streamline your supply chain planning and execution, to improve service levels and reduce operating costs. In addition, you will learn how is this truly different from the systems that you currently operate in and why you cannot tackle today’s supply chain challenges without a network approach.
