For the successful functioning of the economy, logistics and supply chain management ensure that a strong network between the manufacturers and retailers is maintained by smooth transit of goods. The supply chain industry is the backbone of the economy, and any disruption would be a barrier and an ultimate inconvenience to the final consumers.  

During COVID-19 times, suppliers encountered unprecedented challenges with transportation and disrupted operations. Apart from transportation issues, one of the major issues faced was a lack of visibility and flexibility in supply chain processes. There was a sudden rush in demand leading to fluctuating inventory levels. In such a scenario, traditional supply chain practices were not enough to adopt dynamic situations effectively.   

It has highlighted the importance of integrating robust solutions that can overcome the challenges of suppliers and offer great visibility into operations. In such circumstances, mobile solutions work as a rescue in a stormy environment! 

By leveraging mobile technology, suppliers can facilitate real-time and remote monitoring from warehouse operations to last-mile delivery routes. In this blog, we will explore the potential of mobility solutions in tackling some of the challenges faced by the supply chain industry today. 

Let’s discover how mobility solutions are shaping the future of logistics and supply chain-

Encourages Better Vehicle Fleet Management

A Fleet management system allows businesses to have a complete view of vehicle metrics within one application. With mobile integration, fleet management becomes more streamlined and effective. With mobile solutions, suppliers can better track their vehicles such as location, speed, and vehicle health in real-time and from anywhere. Additionally, can have a check on driving behavior to ensure safe driving practices. Thus, with proper fleet management, all the vehicle information is at the fingertips, which helps in optimizing routes, fuel management and ensures timely deliveries. 

Boosts Data Analytics Game

All the mountains of data generated today are of no use when data cannot be analyzed to draw insights. As per reports, more than 65% of companies report having “too much data” to analyze. Amid such challenges, integrating data analytics with mobile solutions can work as a beacon of hope. With mobile supply chain management, companies can predict demand more accurately and thus can adjust inventory and production schedules accordingly. While can also offer insights that can help leverage delivery routes by analyzing traffic patterns and weather conditionsThus, businesses can boost visibility into their supply chain operations and can identify bottlenecks and tackle them in advance

Harness Technology Better with Mobile Integration

Today, most of the population is on the phone and major technologies can be integrated with mobile phones. Companies can harness these technologies including IoT, blockchain, AI, and many more. Cloud-based solutions can be seamlessly integrated with all these technologies and thus hold the capacity to boost collaboration across different stakeholders of the supply chain. Other technologies include API integration and by leveraging API, companies can integrate new technologies into their existing systems better.

Encourages Collaboration

Integrating inventory management systems into mobile phones can boost communication among suppliers as mobile phones are handy and give quick notifications on significant information such as delivery schedules, lost inventory, and production levels. It ensures that all stakeholders are well informed. Integration mobility solutions further facilitate encouraging responsiveness as employees can access the necessary information and communicate from anywhere anytime while sharing data and documents easily.

Reduces Data Redundancy

In every sector, different departments handle data needs, leading to an increase in data redundancy. Companies do require centralized data management that reduces the data silos while ensuring that stakeholders can access all the information timely. Mobility solutions further enable real-time synchronization of data, that is the continuous flow of data from different sources to the destination. This solution also holds importance for the logistics industry as information gets reflected as soon as it gets entered.

Final Words

The points listed above clearly demonstrate the transformative potential of mobility solutions for the logistics and supply chain industry. To remain competitive and resilient in an ever-changing industry landscape, embracing mobility solutions and increasing visibility will be crucial.
