Over the past three decades, the supply chain has undergone a significant change. With the integration of the Internet of Things, advanced robotics, and the analytics of big data, the food supply chain’s shipper, carrier, and receiver can view every transaction of the shipment, from start to finish. Plus, more and more countries around the world are increasingly focusing on legislative and regulatory frameworks that enable companies to trace their cold chain with greater transparency. End-to-end transparency not only builds trust and collaboration among organizations and partners, it can also drive revenue.

Increase Your Supply Chain’s Revenue with End-to-End Transparency
Customer Satisfaction and Demand
Having complete visibility across the supply chain at any given moment allows you to improve your insight into critical performance aspects. This transparency offers a host of benefits, including improved customer satisfaction and increase demand.
Less Food Spoilage
As food makes its way through the various stages of the cold chain, it becomes more challenging to keep produce at optimum conditions. Each stage can lead to a potential change in condition, which may significantly reduce the shelf life of the produce. If the product was over the required temperature for a certain amount of time, the entire shipment would be declared unsafe and documentation of destruction logged. This would likely cost a trucker’s insurance company more than $100k. By maintaining proper temperatures with the help of real-time temperature monitoring and end-to-end transparency, you can mitigate losses.
Trust and Loyalty
As mentioned earlier, transparency is important to build trust with consumers, especially since they’re more conscious than ever about product quality and sustainability. Ideally, consumers can see where their vegetables were harvested or how long a loaf of bread sat in a warehouse. The more confidence a consumer has in your brand, the more willing they’ll be to purchase products from your company. Plus, 3PL’s will be more likely to partner with you.
