Demand-pull supply chains present real challenges for global logistics providers who need to follow their customers into new markets while succeeding on traditionally low margins.
Low cost structures and commercialization in developing markets, the availability of natural resources and raw materials in remote locations, high street and online competition; all factors making collaboration, knowledge-sharing and real-time communication keys to success for logistics providers.
In addition, focus on environmental issues and the ever-increasing cost of fuel makes the smooth and timely movement of goods through the supply chain even more difficult. Late delivery can be costly with penalty payments to customers and loss of confidence.
Your success is contingent upon you being able to communicate and collaborate with customers, their suppliers, other transport and warehouse providers. Often this is over huge distance and across several timezones in multiple languages.
Your selection of network services partner is critical.
Your data and applications need to be accessible from everywhere. Your network provider needs to be able to reach the remotest locations in the most hostile environments. You need flexible solutions to cater for short-term connectivity and IT services for new and temporary locations.
