Project Focus Areas
A major Canadian port handles hundreds of millions of tonnes of cargo a year, with trade volumes forecasted to continue to grow over the coming decades. Greater visibility into how the transportation and logistics supply chain is operating can provide insights to maximize the performance of existing infrastructure, as well as help guide investments in new infrastructure. To achieve greater visibility for all participants across the supply chain, the client embarked on a multi-year digital supply chain transformation, working to develop a KPI dashboard, as well as analytics and forecasting tools, to increase visibility into the transportation & logistics system.
