Session 4: Moving from Reactive to Proactive Visibility into the Supply Chains

Tuesday, 22 March

2:55 pm - 3:40 pm (CST) / 22/mar/2022 07:55 pm - 22/mar/2022 08:40 pm
The need to know where a shipment is, what condition it is in, and when it is likely to arrive have become key footholds for supply chain management teams. Those needs went into hyperdrive in 2021, as port congestion at key cargo gateways impacted even the best run global supply chains. But as cargo visibility tools have become more prominently used, and as the number of providers offering in-transit and predictive data grows, there's a "next step" that supply chain management teams need to focus on: what to do with this enhanced data. This has long been a gap in the effective usage of visibility tools, to go from knowing there's a problem to be able to react and do something about it. This session will explore where the use of visibility is headed in the year ahead, and how visibility is moving from a monitoring-oriented tool to an execution-oriented one.
