How Does Your Next Flight Out Provider Notify You?

For years the status quo of the logistics industry has been compiled of many large Freight Forwarders who excel at one specific sector or another. Through tribal knowledge of knowing popular flight options, reliable service partners, and knowing what routing worked on the previous shipment, they have built the playbook of logistics world. However, in today’s world, the status quo is not enough.

Do you have visibility into your shipment's location?

The vast majority of Internet surveys surrounding supply chain and logistics report that visibility is an essential aspect for stakeholders. However, we continue to accept the industry’s antiquated response to our most crucial need. Even in the most time critical logistics situations (next flight out and on-demand), shippers endure the fact the vast majority of forwarders only provide two data points: when the shipment is picked up and when it has been delivered. This might be acceptable if the delivery is on time (and if it’s the 90s). But, what happens during transport? And, what about the stakeholders who need visibility into their shipment during transit?

Differentiating Leading Versus Lagging Indicators In Logistics

Having the ability to track time-critical shipment is a necessary asset for most companies. Knowing where you aviation part is while your plane is grounded or having the ability to staff lab technicians to accurately meet specimen shipments being delivered to the hospital is an easy way to reduce operational costs and better schedule daily tasks. Currently, there are two ways to track time time-critical shipments: 1) a traditional method using lagging indicators and 2) a tech-enabled method using leading indicators.
