Building a Comprehensive, Cost-Effective Tech Stack for Shipment Visibility
By now, any supply chain stakeholder (whether a shipper, broker, 3P/4PL, or forwarder) knows the importance of visibility for ensuring smooth operations and building resiliency. But visibility can have many meanings, and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution that’s perfect for every business. To add to the complexity, there are countless technological solutions that offer different layers of visibility at various costs of implementation. How do you determine the right solutions for YOUR business?
In this guide, you’ll learn how to build a visibility tech stack that fits your business model based on what and how you ship. By diversifying data streams and layering in the most robust visibility solutions only where you need it most, you can maintain an end-to-end view of your supply chain in a way that’s efficient, effective, and budget-friendly.
