Supply Chain Management is kind of synonymous to risk management. And it seems like risks are growing every day. But many companies are falling short in effectively managing risks in their supply chain. Where are the gaps and how can technology help? That is part of a conversation on talking logistics between Adrian Gonzalez and Phil Lavin, Development Consultant IT at Siemens Postal Parcel & Airport Logistics.
One of the key findings: Visibility is the key to manage risks in today’s supply chain – but not only in terms of track & trace. It is about sharing information with all involved persons in relevant areas of the supply chain. In this context cloud-based IT platforms are a perfect option to enhance transparency and allow for effective cross-company collaboration.
