How connected IDs will transform the logistics industry

In today’s supply chain, it is critical to have full visibility from source to final destination, despite the amount of changing form factors of products, pallets and parcels between the various silos. Connected IDs unlock unseen accuracy along this journey and build a trusted base for verification, accounting, brand protection and sustainability measures. A fully connected supply chain powered by data creation, capture, interpretation, storage, sharing and connectivity is the foundation for achieving greater efficiency. In a time of ever-increasing volumes and shortening transit times, it’s the only way to maximize profit while coping with new levels of service demands.
