With the help of transportation technology, the logistic challenges that you had to put with could have been avoided, their result could have and still can be altered. But what can “technology” do for your supply chain?
In the era of digitalization, working manually is a drain and can, without a doubt, pull the breaks on your overall business activities. For a supply chain to run smoothly and be resilient, human logistic management is not the way to operate anymore. With the increasing changes in consumer demand and behavior, with the escalating geopolitical issues that disturb the proper way of trading, and the new ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting Standards) and uprising ecological regulations being implemented, a system needs to come into the picture to oversee and guide your logistics, and to give you a peephole onto what happens behind the curtain.

Why is Alpega the right tool for logistics problems?
With the never-ending challenges that supply chains have to face, whether it’s capacity, geopolitical conflicts, energy shortage, or others, and because of the complexity of logistics and supply chains, you need to be able to focus on what matters the most and to delegate the rest. During hardships, you need to trust that no matter what, your shipments will be handled properly, at the right cost, on the right routes and arrive at the right time. Alpega’s Transportation Management System provides visibility, an essential feature and your most important asset in order to know what happens in your supply chain, with whom and when. Think about it as a surveillance camera into which you can log in at any time and see where your products are and when they will reach their next step. Being a collaborative platform, you are connected to all your key players and all parties involved in your supply chain for better communication, with customizable alerts about the shipments that are being executed. With this real-time visibility, you are given the possibility to plan ahead and to mitigate losses.
The powerful analytics and reliable data that Alpega TMS provides ensures better business decisions, which can improve the invoicing and cash-collection times, positively impacting cash flows. In addition, it contributes to freight cost reductions in several ways:
Saving on freight tendering allocation through more accurate tender results
Saving on procurement through direct access to carriers and dynamic transport optimization
Saving on capacity optimization through automated order communication
Saving on freight cost thanks to more accurate calculations
With complex transportation networks come complex supply chain challenges, costs growth, disruptions and losses, and without concurrent growth in visibility, those issues can be hard to identify, let alone reduce. Alpega’s digital solutions for end-to-end transportation management can transform disjointed networks into connected ecosystems, giving you the transparency you need and faster access to the data that drives improvements across all nodes of your network.
