Shipping major Maersk Line has focused on the needs of small and medium-sized businesses with the launch of a new digital platform – Maersk Flow - designed to help them take control of the supply chain from factory to market.
“The solution enables transparency in critical supply chain processes and reduces manual work and costly mistakes, while empowering logistics professionals with all the current and historical data they need to sustainably improve their supply chain,” saysMartin Holme, global head of SCM & E-commerce Logistic, A.P. Moller – Maersk.
“The daily life of small and medium-sized businesses is increasingly global, complex and fast-paced. Every day thousands of products are moving through the supply chain, on multiple carriers, coming from and reaching many supply chain partners and customers. And for many of these companies this complexity is managed manually via spreadsheets, emails and phone calls, which despite lots of hard work leads to reduced visibility and control – and ultimately higher costs or lost sales. With Maersk Flow these companies will be able to take control of their supply chains,” he added.
