TMS Visibility? INCONCEIVABLE!

Logistics Viewpoints

Transportation management systems (TMS) have been around for a good 25-30 years, but they’ve struggled with visibility for most of that lifetime. Sure, the TMS industry has long talked about the visibility of their systems. But it’s only been in the last two or three years that we’ve seen measurable leaps forward in visibility capabilities. Like the Princess Bride scene where one character questions another’s constant use of the word “inconceivable,” the term “visibility” is […].

Preparing for the Future of Supply Chains

Every day, innovations that weren’t even conceivable a decade ago are used without a second thought. It’s a humbling thought and one that raises some incredible questions about the technology that awaits the industry in the years ahead.

Automated Order Processing and Proactive Inventory Management

Speaker: Irina Rosca, Director of Supply Chain Operations, Helix

Organizations need to focus on demand driven supply planning, utilizing real time information on customer orders from all marketplaces (e-commence, Amazon - or other online retailers, and point of sale data from brick and mortar). Focusing on this information once per month during the S&OP meeting is too late for all business units to align. Companies should have seamless integration between order entry, inventory management, forecasting and supply planning models and purchase order status to sense risk, pull levers to mitigate potential risk, and communicate within and outside the organization. This is especially important for new product releases, in store programs or promotions (sales, end caps, PDQ. etc) or online promotions (company run or 3rd party). Depending on total supply chain lead time, not having real time visibility and analysis of this information can significantly affect sales and the bottom line.
