ALC’s Technology Committee is currently working on an intermodal visibility project to improve the efficiency of supply chains in the transport and logistics industry.
Intermodal visibility project
The seamless transfer of accurate information along the supply chain is just as critical as the physical and tangible infrastructure that supports Australia’s freight industry.
In the same way that traffic congestion and delays affect the transportation of goods, so too does inconsistent data between suppliers, retailers, distributors and transport providers.
From the moment a shipment leaves its origin, to the time it arrives at its final destination, it may travel to multiple locations and pass through a number of transport service providers, all with varying systems and processes. In turn, these differences often result in time delays, increased costs and wasted resources.
