Take a dive into real-world use cases
Logistics companies are in a highly competitive environment, and they’re under constant pressure to keep costs low. As a result, many logistics companies take advantage of outsourcing - hiring outside businesses or individuals to handle some portion of their operations - to cut down on overhead expenses.
Because of these issues, data sharing is limited, transparency is low due to unknown go-betweens who take on tasks as subcontractors. Additionally supply chain management inefficiencies arise from unstandardised processes and lack of available data.
Logistical issues are exacerbated by the dominance of manual labor and paper-based processes, which comprise a significant portion of current logistics operations.
