By leveraging our in-house team of transportation industry experts, we can offer you a solution crafted specifically for your business and market.
The transportation and distribution industry is competitive with a close tie to the overall economy. Over the last decade, globalization and new sophisticated transportation technologies have added additional pressures and opportunities for those in the trucking, rail, air, marine, multi-modal or third-party transportation business. The challenges facing transportation and logistics companies include:
- A competitive environment with sunken prices, low closure rates, and contracts based on consumption or demand
- Unpredictable and volatile market conditions
- Legacy systems and homegrown technology that is hampering growth
- Inefficient performance management and forecasting/bidding
- A siloed supply chain
Considering these factors, transportation and distribution corporations need to find a way to compete without lowering prices. Hitachi Solutions in partnership with Microsoft can help.
