Lead Logistics Providers in the Real Time Value Network™

Lower Transportation Costs, Gain Real-Time Visibility, Coordinate with Customers and Trading Partners, Become Demand-Driven


Companies of all sizes are outsourcing their logistics to 3PLs and 4PLs to achieve lower transportation costs and reduced risk.  Despite these benefits however, the relationship between logistics providers and shippers is usually characterized by a lack of visibility and coordination. The cloud-based Real Time Value Network’s Lead Logistics Provider Best Practice Template offers a suite of services that allow both logistics providers and shippers to deliver more value and better service to their customers while lowering transportation and IT costs.

Challenge: In the logistics environment, even those companies following the industry’s “best practices” still struggle to overcome a confusing technology landscape that hinders operational efficiency.

Problems that ERP and current systems cannot solve:

  • Systems that can’t integrate critical demand, supply , and logistics data
  • Working jointly to create an intelligent order that optimizes around service level, inventory and logistics
  • Lack of transparency into rates, routes, and variable lead time options for shippers
  • High IT costs for point-based software incapable of reacting to a dynamic logistics environment
  • Long information lead times to translate demand signals from customers
  • An inability to quickly mitigate unexpected events

Solution: Connect to the Real Time Value Network and subscribe to the Logistics Best Practice Template
