Supply Chain Visibility: The Unfulfilled Promise

 
 
 

Company: AEB International Ltd
Tag:



Rising cost pressures and increasing customer demands represent real challenges for logistics. In addition, supply chains are growing more and more complex and international. Comprehensive supply chain visibility is an essential foundation for those who wish to master these challenges.

Effective supply chain visibility – understood to mean an overview of all processes across the supply chain, from supplier to end customer – yields higher levels of service and lower costs while mitigating risks. Companies that have achieved a high level of supply chain visibility also benefit from stronger performance and are more competitive. But in reality, many companies still compensate for the lack of transparency by implementing costly measures – maintaining high levels of safety stock, changing carriers or modes of transport, adding delivery trips, or paying overtime.

At the end of the day, the complexity of modern supply chains can only be mastered through comprehensive supply chain visibility and IT support across the entire network.

Our white paper “Supply Chain Visibility – the Unfulfilled Promise” gives examples in the following five key business areas:
- Procurement: demand for targeted information
- Customer satisfaction: how visibility can lead to higher levels of service
- Inventory management: what dynamic markets require
- Supply chain cost: optimizing resources and lowering costs
- Risk management: identifying and mitigating risks
