How to Avoid Delays in Supply Chain Processes with Big Data?
Wednesday, January 12, 2022
There are several ways to bring location intelligence into the supply chain. If you want to improve delivery times and increase throughput, it is vital to identify and solve the root causes of delays.
Most supply chain delays do not occur when goods are in motion between suppliers and locations. Instead, delays often occur in handoffs between organizations and suppliers.

Several types of Big Data exist that can be collected, correlated and analyzed to provide supply chain managers with accurate insight to understand exactly where goods are at any given time, and identify what might affect their schedule. Read the full article here.

Here are some examples of the ways in which organizations treat and receive location information:
GPS-enabled devices: These devices are attached to vehicles, storage containers or goods and allow constant updating of their location.
Geofencing: Essential location intelligence technique to create a virtual geographic boundary.
Direct integration with the technological systems of various physical locations: port, air or ground operating systems.
