Keeping pace with the rate of change confronting Supply Chains is becoming increasingly difficult to manage. Manufacturing, distribution, and retail organizations are faced with maintaining outdated technology for management and procurement or tasked with evaluating expensive Transportation Management System programs promising streamlined decision-making and automation of processes. Add in the high demand for accurately forecasting customer demand and its easy to see why managers are looking for things to make their jobs more efficient.
Supply Chains are always looking to enlist more suppliers for their procurement and manufacturing needs. Stability and cost control can lead to increased business and more customers. Consequently, keeping costs in line with respect to logistics and going to market are of paramount importance. Alignment with inadequate planning and outdated logistical capabilities only further complicates the process and siphons revenue from the bottom line. That is why partnering with a good 3rd Party with logistical expertise can certainly help; but that begs the question, “What would be the cost of doing nothing?”

Some utilize current technology while others adhere to labor-intensive systems that mostly rely on phone calls and emails. Companies that cannot adapt and provide real-time information run the risk of losing out on business as information gaps pose real challenges.
