Transportation Portal - A Supply Chain Collaboration Platform

The onset of the pandemic and the disruption to global supply chain networks have caused a paradigm shift of focus from efficiency to resilience in supply chains. With the unpredictability of disruptions, there is an increased need for flexibility, visibility, and control over processes to build resilient supply chains.

Supply chains are complex networks comprising numerous entities-manufacturers, distributors, 3rd party logistics service providers, warehouses, brokers, and carriers. Therefore, there is an increasing need for better collaboration and seamless exchange of information to create more transparent systems. Organizations need collaborative and unified platforms to share relevant data on the business-to-business ecosystem. The Transportation Portal enables shippers to streamline business processes and provide a seamless communication platform.
