Digital logistics platform FarEye has released its supply chain visibility suite, Orbit, which enables businesses to have complete visibility of goods in transit from the plant right through to the final destination.
The suite integrates with transportation management software (TMS) and warehouse management systems (WMS), facilitates data-driven transporter allocation, provides digital proof of delivery and gives live ETA updates for the entire journey.
The suite, which also works for reverse logistics, integrates with third-party logistics (3PL) systems to provide full visibility at every step. In addition, the FarEye suite integrates with GPS devices and temperature sensors to alert companies to any potential or actual problems with the goods while in transit.
FarEye’s Delivery Happiness Dashboards make it possible to track KPIs such as vendor performance and bottlenecks in transit, enabling data-backed business decisions. The suite also automates logistics processes with mobile applications including digital proof of delivery.
Kushal Nahata, co-founder and CEO, FarEye, said, “With multiple stakeholders involved in the movement of freight, the supply chain has historically been like a black box for enterprises, with customers not knowing where and what condition their goods are in.
“As the world moves toward a just-in-time manufacturing model which demands shorter and reliable supply chains, companies are rightly demanding to know the location and state of their goods at every stage of their journey.
“FarEye’s Orbit technology will give businesses complete visibility of goods from the start of their journey until the final destination and help foster collaboration among all the various stakeholders and logistics processes.”
