If the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, how complex can global shipping be? More complex than meets the eye.
If you’ve read this blog, you know that a global approach to distribution means a wide range of market-specific complexities, all in addition to adhering to growing customer service standards while discovering distribution efficiencies. To help manage this complexity, a global logistics integration strategy is paramount.
With that in mind, Eyefreight and Supply Chain Movement have developed a “mindmap” to help guide global logistics integration, outlining the route to achievement and providing road signs to flag potential hazards along the way, given marketplace trends like e-commerce and omnichannel distribution.
A transportation management system (TMS) is a must-have to survive in the global marketplace. The Eyefreight Level 5 TMS provides central coordination and detailed data visibility, focused on tackling the unique and unpredictable business challenges companies face when expanding their global shipping and logistics operations.
