The importance of supply chain visibility and how a collaborative cloud platform can support your business
This webinar will consist of 2 parts.
In the first part, Prof. Dr. J. Rod Franklin*, P.E., Professor of Logistics Practice and Academic Director of Executive Education at Kühne Logistics University, will speak about the importance of supply chain visibility and control in managing the reliable and efficient flow of an organization’s inventory. Given the problems that have surfaced in supply chain operations during the pandemic, end-to-end visibility of supply chain flows and the efficient distribution of goods have become ever more critical operational imperatives in the management of supply chains. Prof. Franklin will address how modern systems and digital technologies enable organizations to achieve greater efficiency and sustainability in their supply chain operations using the metaphor of the “Physical Internet” as an organizing principle.
In the second part, Mr. Arjan Kerkhoff, Sales Director at MIXMOVE, will zoom in about how current challenges as explained in the first part of the webinar can be solved with a collaborative and single source of truth platform. A platform which combines all the silo-based data from partners and resources to control, predict and analyze every single logistic event along your logistics no matter where it comes from.
Imagine on top you have the ability to visualize all data sources by enlightening your logistics on a product level!
An interesting webinar with the aim to teach you more about how making logistics processes more efficient, connected and sustainable without time-consuming and costly changes.
