Reaping the benefits of a technology-based supply chain used to be a luxury reserved only for the biggest enterprises. But buoyed by IT advancements and increasingly complex market conditions, businesses large and small are now getting in on the game.
As digital transformation forces nearly every industry to re-examine its business practices, shippers of all sizes recognize the importance of an agile, digitized supply chain. Supply chains are complex by nature, and the rise of e-commerce is creating even more complexity that requires precise planning and automated processes. Raw materials and products now take myriad paths from sourcing to fulfillment, and customers have little patience for delays, regardless of the challenges vendors face in getting product to them.
