Challenges faced by the procurement team

Lack of visibility

Many transportation businesses grapple with incomplete data on their supply side, which is hobbling growth plans.

  • Invest in supplier and supply chain market intelligence to know all that’s going on in your delivery networks, and identify and plug inefficiencies in time
  • Get advance alerts on supply-side performance efficiency and unplanned events that could potentially upend your delivery chain and cause you financial and reputational loss
  • Benefit from dashboard overviews and detailed drilldowns of supply chain metrics and patterns; discover opportunities to improve processes and drive efficiency while containing risks

Need to go beyond cost control

A lot of businesses acknowledge they are struggling to shift gear from low-end cost-based projects to high-hanging fruits.

  • Deepen your collaboration with a supplier base that boasts the right balance of price, reliability, and skillsets to co-script innovation and win high-value deals
  • Pin down areas of excess logistics spend and significantly pare it through insights-based approaches to fine-tune routing, centralize procurement, as well as consolidate shipments
  • Enhance the supplier’s sense of fairness and achievement by tailoring equitable payments based on product cost breakdowns and the value of the task performed

Improving supplier sustainability

Ethical and unsustainable production and delivery practices negatively impact an enterprise’s image, and accountability starts at the top!

  • Continually track the sustainability efforts that inform suppliers’ processes and tasks on a daily basis and get top-class insights at your fingertips in real time
  • Stay clear of “conflict minerals” and goods resulting from forced labor by embracing deeper visibility of the supply side with IoT-based shipment tracking and tracing
  • Gather relevant data on suppliers’ GHG emissions from across projects and facilities, discover useful patterns, compare with industry benchmarks, and realize emission reduction targets.
