What Is a Control Tower?

Understand how Control Towers fit into the supply chain

In logistics, a control tower is a cloud-based solution used to proactively manage supply chains using artificial intelligence, machine learning and other advanced technologies. It collects and coordinates relevant data from all aspects of an operation to give a 24/7 panoramic overview of the supply chain. Benefits of a control tower include end-to-end supply chain visibility, performance optimization, increased efficiency, lower costs and minimized disruptions.
