End-to-end visibility and traceability
Whichever form of transport you use, you can follow the progress of your shipment from the moment it leaves your facilities until it arrives at its destination. Our transportation services can include cargo monitoring in terms of temperature, humidity, shock, light, and geolocation via data loggers.
Furthermore, our control tower and dashboard solutions give you a real-time overview at shipment and purchase order level. These dynamic solutions support you to increase efficiency and handle your inventory and costs more smoothly.
To minimize your risk, we can carry out risk validation for the entire supply chain covering compliance and security aspects of our suppliers and sub-contractors. This even extends to validation of weather conditions during transport.
