Supply or distribution chain visibility is part of supply/distribution chain management. Having visibility means you can see how well you are managing the “flow” of your goods.
Creating visibility can generate some major benefits for your company. Here are our top three reasons why creating visibility should be on your agenda.
- Creating visibility can reduce your costs.
The tracking and subsequent retrieval of packaging assets can be managed in such a way that packing cost per use can be reduced. When you can see everything clearly, you can see where you can save money.
- Creating visibility can increase sustainability and reduce your carbon footprint.
- Creating visibility can provide a better experience for your customers.
Many of your customers struggle with the disposal of used packaging. You can provide your customers with a hassle free program, like Nelson-ART, by which they can return used packaging. This can not only reduce your customer’s costs, but also deepen the relationship that you have with them.
Creating visibility in your distribution chain can help you identify and “see” issues in the chain. These issues might include goods in the wrong location or transportation and inventory problems. Creating visibility in your distribution chain can give your company a competitive advantage.
