Communication in the supply chain between its components is vital for your company’s logistics operations to run smoothly. The exchange of information must be fluid and direct in order to avoid communication failures that can generate great losses.
When communication is fluid, the process becomes more agile because demands and documentation are transferred more efficiently. Even more so if everyone uses the same communication and document storage platform.
The supply chain is going through a new era of transformation where stability has become the rule. However, 3/4 of supply chain managers have not yet embraced the digital revolution in their companies, leaving them vulnerable and lacking resilience.
Practicing communication in the supply chain.
Consider a pillow exporter; it will need foam, feathers, latex ingredients, and fabrics, among many other materials. That’s a lot of suppliers and retailers to deal with, plus internal company communication.
If there is an unforeseen problem with the foams, he will have to reduce the production of this type of product and focus on the feather pillow, for example. But if his communication relies on fragmentation, how will he be able to make such fast changes?
It is necessary that employees have access to an efficient form of communication that centralizes the sharing of information and documents. In this way, your supply chain orders gain capillarity and efficiency.
