Please join the Traffic Club of the Lehigh Valley's next Lunch & Learn Webinar! In this edition, John O'Brien from IMS Logistics will discuss a valuable solution to streamline the flow of accurate information and visibility for ocean imports.
As managing the information continues to become as important as moving products, companies need the tools to create an environment where information can be accessed at the right time, by the right people, to truly make that information powerful. Addressing the challenges of today’s complex, incomplete, inaccurate, and untimely data from providers, the lack of efficient communication and collaboration between transportation & logistics partners, and an overall lack of visibility throughout the process make this the most difficult link to complete in the import supply chain. Managing the inland movement of ocean imports requires collaboration between many internal and external stakeholders, including truckers, warehouses, and other service providers. Collaboration between entities tends to be manual, and the absence of tools to provide actionable visibility can negatively impact forecasting, resulting in costly storage charges, and misallocation of capacity and labor.
