Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ROYAL LEAMINGTON SPA, England - Jan 16, 2017 - The opportunities for synchronising supply chains between businesses and across borders are promising. But many businesses are struggling to integrate transport partners into their IT environment. AEB, a leading provider of supply chain logistics software, has published a white paper that offers valuable information on this very subject. Titled “Five tips for IT-based collaboration with carriers and parcel services”, the white paper can be downloaded free of charge at www.aeb.com/uk/media/white-paper-carrier-integration.php.
For many IT and logistics managers, synchronising internal and external logistics processes remains a dream.The challenges seem too daunting and the costs too prohibitive: a lot of IT resources are tied up in pooling the requirements of all the different departments and service providers, introducing an end-to-end data and process structure, and implementing decision-making processes for internal or external data management.
So what is the key to IT-based collaboration with transport partners? A new white paper by AEB gives an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of various methods of IT-based collaboration with carriers and highlights the associated challenges. It also provides a handy checklist that helps businesses to ascertain whether IT integration offers a potential benefit for them.
Claire Umney, General Manager at AEB, said: “The opportunities and competitive advantages of a well-functioning, IT-based collaboration with transport service providers – cost savings, greater data transparency, and higher customer satisfaction – should not be dismissed lightly. Even small steps, such as linking individual parcel services to your in-house IT or automating manual processes, can pay off. Our new white paper contains five important tips for IT-based collaboration that we hope will help businesses to successfully integrate transport service providers in processes andsystem environments – even internationally.”
