Tackling the challenge of supply chain control and visibility

Supply chain control and visibility are among the top challenges in logistics. Improving supply chain transparency is a high priority for many companies, especially in industries such as food and beverage, where consumers and regulators are pushing for more information on how products are made and transported from point of manufacture to point of delivery.
