Oftentimes, the solution is not replacing the legacy systems they have in place but by connecting and extending them with a supply chain control tower.

Are Reducing Cost and Enhancing Customer Value Mutually Exclusive in the Supply Chain?

Over the past decade, supply chain leaders have increasingly been asked to reduce the cost associated with fulfilling of customer orders on-time and in-full. However, in most cases, they have been asked to do so with less funding while the quantity of orders has increased. Let’s face it; that is tough position to be in.

Supply Chain Innovation isn't just about robots, self-driving cars and drones [WEBINAR]

Most of the time that I hear about innovation in the supply chain, I read about robotics, Uber and self-driving trucks or the automated drones that will soon be delivering our Amazon packages.

However, while the mind-space of the media and articles trends toward these innovations, the conversations that we have with supply chain leaders usually are more grounded. They care about their operational supply chain and how to improve and optimize their flows, costs and service level to their customers. Robots are great but they have pressing need for innovation in how they execute their supply chains from how they collaborate with suppliers and partners to dynamically using inventory across their supply chain networks.

In fact, many shippers have decided to do this expecting it would improve their supply chain performance. Recent studies[1] show a continuing, positive overall nature of shipper-3PL relationships. Shippers however, tend to outsource only those activities that are more transactional, operational and repetitive. This will no longer hold.

Supply Chain Orchestration for Valentine’s Day

Feb 14, 2015: It’s Valentine’s Day!

The doorbell rings and Martha rushes to open the door with eager anticipation. She is awaiting the bunch of beautiful, sweet-smelling, red roses that her husband surprises her with, at every Valentine’s Day. When she opened the door, however, her joy quickly turns to disappointment. A delivery boy stands outside, with a bouquet that holds a dozen wistful looking red roses that are nearing their end. Martha is unhappy and her husband is indignant with the florist.
