Digitalization opens the door to a new age for the chemical industry. It paves the way for companies in the industry from material suppliers to solution and service providers. It is the driving force behind development that creates a new level of efficiency and transparency for the industry’s sensitive supply chains.
What does it take to ensure a highly effective combination of logistics services and solutions in Chemistry 4.0? How can the complex elements of the supply chain and the associated management tasks be put into a simple formula? Which digital applications and functions can be used to optimize logistics and intralogistics in supply processes?
Supply chain visibility helps predict such events or make it possible to see them coming early enough to take evasive action.
This paper outlines the preconditions for supply chain visibility, points to case studies to highlight the benefits, and explains the role played by cloud technology.
