More than ever, supply chains need to be agile and resilient.

Supply chain control tower implementation in stages starting with less challenging nodes makes these solutions affordable and accessible. Also, today's control towers are more powerful than earlier versions, allowing the ability to integrate disparate data sources and information systems while using technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to improve network visibility and performance.

This new e-book from Penske Logistics explores the multiple benefits provided by control towers. You'll learn what they are and why they provide a more responsive management of inventory at rest and in transit, improved order fulfillment and enhanced network design.
