First: a collection of functionally rich business-to-business software applications for automating global trade and logistics processes across business networks.
Second: a network controller for creating and administering the complex and highly dynamic business relationships, permissions and roles of multiple organizations working together in business communities.
Third: a global data grid to connect to the systems of thousands of partners and providers, and to standardize the data from the systems of those partners. Without a data strategy — and without standardized data transformed into useful supply chain information — no software application can deliver results. In global trade and logistics, information is king.
Your forwarders can upload shipping documents, your suppliers can update information on inbound shipment, you can share data and information with any party in the supply chain you grant access to. And on top of that, the platform integrates with other systems.
Some examples of what this could improve: Increased visibility across the supply chain, improved cross-docking capabilities, virtual warehouse management through yard visibility and inbound pipeline visibility, or information control both upstream and downstream on shipment level.
In short: Cloud-based collaboration enables control and agility.
