Collaboration With Top Logistics Technology Providers is Crucial

, , ,

 

Gaining efficiency in today’s trucking and logistics market means leveraging the best technology at your disposal, and visibility is the key to true efficiency. Visibility no longer means simply tracking shipments—modern technology allows us to access all kinds of information at the exact moment we need it. That means instant access to visibility across the full shipment workflow, and the ability to share that information across your supply chain. That means competitive advantage, but it also means that failing to achieve that level of visibility puts companies at an extreme disadvantage.

A major component of enabling that level of visibility is the strength of the network integrated into the solution itself. Neurored chose to partner with project44 for several reasons, one of them being the outstanding quality of p44’s carrier network. As a TMS, supporting as many carriers as possible is extremely advantageous. We want to ensure that our customers have the best options available to them at all times, and project44’s network allows us to do that.

This network strengthens the functionality we have built into our TMS. By ensuring that we’re receiving high-quality visibility data from project44 and their carrier network, we’re ensuring that our advanced functionality is utilizing the best data available. Having progressive, modern technology is crucial in today’s trucking and logistics landscape, but it has to be fed with the best data in order to function at full capacity. That’s why collaboration is so important in today’s trucking and logistics landscape.

 

Collaboration Among Tech Providers Enables Supply Chain Visibility

More connectivity within the supply chain means more companies are able to collaborate, share information back and forth, and create efficiencies and visibility. There is a real effort among top technology providers to work together and leverage each other’s technologies in order to strengthen their own, giving customers better experiences overall. Neurored partnering with project44 is a prime example of that kind of collaboration, and the international reach of this partnership makes it even more significant.

6 Key benefits of Cloud Logistics – Neurored

Illustration of Neurored’s platform integrating best-in-class partner services within a collaborative framework for Global Trade and Logistics.

Neurored Cloud Logistics delivers these 6 key advantages for 3PLs, Traders and Shippers:

1.- REAL-TIME TRANSPORTATION SCHEDULING, PRICING AND BOOKING.
Transportation schedules and pricing are as volatile as they are unpredictable. Adjustments on-the-go can make or break your yields. Cloud Logistics bring more optimal freight rate selection to search, compare and select the best freight rates for executing transport. INTTRA, FREIGHTOS, TRAXONTRUCKSTOP and PROJECT44 combined with the Neurored solutions empowers our customers to trade with unlimited Carriers in all posible modes of Transport (Ocean FCL/LCL, Air, Road FTL/LTL and Railway).

2.- REAL-TIME INVENTORY AND CARGO STATUS WITH RFID AND IoT TECHNOLOGIES.
RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) is a keen example of how Cloud Logistics can take technologies to a new level. RFID is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object from up to several feet away, and it does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the reader to be tracked. RFID integrated with Cloud Logistics means all those tags can be uploaded to the Cloud to keep updated real-time inventory and equipment monitoring. TURCK VILAN RFID systems combined with Neurored solutions are reaching new levels of performance on real-time inventory management.

3.- MULTIMODAL GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN VISIBILITY.
Global visibility means that all of the stakeholders, from suppliers, trading partners, carriers through to your customers, all have access to the same view of the transaction as it flows through each step of the supply chain. Cloud Logistics solutions increase the granularity of what can be known about a shipment at any time, from any device, featuring push/pull service of global track and trace. Neurored leverages OCEAN INSIGHTSTRAXON, TRUCKSTOP and PROJECT44 to consolidate and evaluate tracking events from multiple Carriers to help our customers stay on top of things, whether for day-to-day operations or for strategic decisions.

4.- SOURCING / TRADING SYNCHRONIZATION.
In Cloud Logistics, everything happens online. This means that your sourcing requests can be delivered on a massive scale to many potential suppliers, because it can be managed programmatically. For example, you can send a single sourcing request to dozens, even hundreds of potential suppliers, and conduct your evaluation and sourcing process through an online auction.

5.- TRUSTED TRADE FINANCE.
Trade Finance innovations arising from Blockchain technology are enabling a new solid trust in financial transactions between trading counterparts. This combines with Cloud Logistics solutions, delivering impactful reduction of costs as the transaction requires less financial parties and it accelerates documents verification. EBURY is the Neurored’s partner for providing our customers B2B Cross-Border payments for Trade Financing.

6.- DEVELOP YOUR OWN SUPPLY CHAIN NETWORK.
Cloud Logistics enables the developing of your own supply chain network through collaboration. This is implemented through communities, which grant access to customers and partners -and their respective customers- to quotation, order fulfilment, paperless interchange of documents or global track and trace, among the most relevant. These collaborative interactions quickly result in a supply chain network with clear benefits on efficiency, productivity and customer service.
