Overcoming hurdles for operational excellence

Previously, our client faced significant hurdles in maintaining clear visibility and assessing the impact of their inbound and outbound logistics. Relying on third-party updates often resulted in delays and incomplete information. Additionally, the absence of a collaborative mechanism with suppliers led to fluctuating ordering patterns due to dynamic demand, causing delays in response times.

Enhancing visibility and collaborative efforts

In response to these challenges, our client aimed to enhance supply chain visibility across their operations. They sought to foster greater internal and external collaboration with suppliers to effectively address disruptions in real-time.
