Staying competitive in our fast-paced world requires continuous change through learning and adapting to our respective marketplace. With the continued rise of e-commerce, which is driven by extremely quick turnaround and delivery expectations, finding new ways to stay ahead of the competition is critical to success.
According to a recent article in Supply Chain magazine, “In 2022, and for the foreseeable future, producing timely and accurate data reporting will be critical for business capability.” Having deep insights into your company’s supply chain, specifically through the lens of routing center data, can give your company a needed edge in an incredibly competitive marketplace. The following are three ways routing center data can influence the way you stay competitive and grow your business.
Enhanced LTL and TL insights
Less-than-truckload (LTL) and truckload (TL) shipping requires accurate and actionable insights for on-time delivery. JLS Routing Center data like around-the-clock information about your shipments, shipment dispatching, automated shipment notifications and visibility reports provide needed visibility into your overall supply chain. This data can also be used to identify any red flags before they create problems for your supply chain, your inventory, or your receiving dock.
Optimize on the Fly
General supply chain data can provide vast amounts of information that can be used after the shipments are fulfilled. However, the JLS Routing Center can provide insights and analytics in real-time to allow for on-the-fly changes that optimize your freight logistics now, rather than later.
With real-time data, you can:
- Proactively modify a shipment in transit
- Reroute due to heavy traffic, road closures, etc.
- Contact dispatchers in the event of an issue
- Make last-minute delivery changes, such as time and delivery contact
- Communicate with customers as issues or changes arise
Increase Overall Supply Chain Reliability
Having reliability in your supply chain process is vital to staying competitive in your industry. When you are armed with accurate and real-time routing center data, overall business efficiencies are increased. Through a comprehensive view of your supply chain – from improved route planning, increased customer response time, advanced production planning, shipment tracking, invoicing and many other data points – you firm up the overall reliability of your supply chain.
