Real-time cloud-based platform offers enhanced services and delivers savings to Silk and its customers
MELBOURNE, Australia, Aug. 2, 2018 — Silk Contract Logistics (Silk), one of the fastest growing third party logistics providers in Australia, today announced that they have partnered with One Network Enterprises (ONE) in order to create a virtual retail network for Australia. Silk will be ONE’s primary go to market partner in Australia. Silk will use One Network’s Real Time Value Network™ to provide a single network for customers and carriers with a single version of the truth for all parties, enhancing visibility and collaboration across the supply chain.
With the Real Time Value Network, Silk will be able to provide customers with end-to-end Control Tower visibility through information management services on the network. The network uses real-time data and a single version of the truth, so information is more accurate and timely, and is easily shared.
With One Network’s Intelligent Logistics solution (TMS), Silk will be able to better manage the transportation demands of its customers. Silk will also be able to offer to customers enhanced and integrated services that are available on the network, such as Order and Replenishment Management.
“With the visibility that One Network’s Control Tower capability provides, we will be able to better anticipate issues and resolve them in real-time,” says SILK’s Managing Director, Brendan Boyd.
With One Network’s Studio and Software Developers Kit, Silk will have the flexibility to adapt existing modules to their needs and to create new functional modules. The platform also includes Intelligent Agents which optimize, make and execute decisions, so that the supply chain network is coordinated to better serve demand at the lowest available cost.
Chris Edwards, One Network Enterprises’ Vice President of Asia Pacific said, “We are excited to be partnering with Silk, a leading 3PL in Australia and a company that understands the importance of being customer-driven. Silk will be bringing a platform of powerful solutions and building an ecosystem of trading partners in Australia. With full visibility and integrated real-time solutions, Silk will be able to deliver complete visibility and higher service to customers.”
