How to increase visibility in multi-tier supply chains?
Friday, April 1, 2022
Understanding how a product gets into the hands of customers requires a broad and comprehensive view across the list of all the companies involved in the distribution process, from the factories to the last distributor to the final customer.
Location analytics allows businesses to map their entire supply chain, in order to identify all components that are part of the logistic processes.
Multi-tier supply chains are multiple single-tier collaborations, i.e., multiple relationships between suppliers and buyers, within a supply chain. These multilevel chains are becoming a key strategic driver to reduce costs, decrease capital assets and bring products to the market in a more efficient way than the competitors.

Supply chains can be divided into a “tier” system based on proximity to a business or final product.

These are partners with whom business is done directly, including contracted manufacturing facilities or production partners.

It is easiest to identify Tier 2 suppliers as the sources from which Tier 1 suppliers obtain their supplies.

Tier 3 suppliers or partners are one step beyond the final product and typically deal with raw resources.

At PREDIK Data-Driven we use location intelligence and advanced analytics to answer questions such as:
What other vendors do my customer work with?
Who are my competitor’s customers?
Who are the wholesalers of a specific company?
Who are the distributors my competitors work with?
What does my competitors’ supply chain look like?
What are the facilities of specific companies?

Most supply chain managers have limited visibility into which of their first-tier suppliers have risks and exposures arising from second and third-tier suppliers. Essentially, they do not know who supplies their Tier 1 suppliers.
Location analytics can identify unknown hidden participants or nodes in supply chains, thus helping to minimize and better control the risks of disruption.

Big Data and the Last Mile Business
July 2021
The last mile is the journey of a product from the warehouse shelf to the back of a truck and the customer's door, thus being the final step in the operational process, when the package finally arrives at the consumer's door. In addition to being one of the keys to customer satisfaction, last mile delivery is the most problematic part of the shipping process.
It is one of the logistics areas where Big Data can have a real impact on daily operations, offering the opportunity to optimize internal processes and better control external factors, developing qualitative and quantitative improvements in operations, supply chain areas and logistics processes, bringing significant improvements in last mile deliveries.
