Keep Your Supply Chain Moving
Real-time Data for Seamless Operations
When the supply chain stops moving, you feel the effects immediately. Deliveries arrive late. Shippers run the risk of incurring fees. Labor sits idle. Production lines, retail customers and online shoppers all rely on the seamless flow of goods. You can't afford any supply chain hiccups.
Many factors play a role in keeping the supply chain moving. Each brings its unique challenges and opportunities. To effectively manage the process, ensure on-time deliveries and keep everything on track, you need visibility and real-time data. You also need to rest assured that your data is secure and available.
"The precision and accuracy of information and its ability to keep the supply chain moving is becoming even more important."
—Andy Moses, senior vice president of sales and solutions, Penske Logistics
Optimize the supply chain to drive results
The ClearChain®Technology Suite works together to give you a high-level, detailed view of all supply chain movements and ensure nothing stops. This added visibility allows users to optimize routes, manage drivers and ensure goods remain in motion. When you can see the exact location and circumstances surrounding a load, you can find opportunities to correct a problem before or as it occurs.
See granular data on all parts of the supply chain
ClearChain users can drill down into all of the information associated with an order, including the status, scheduled pickup and delivery, actual pickup and delivery, origin, destination and the part-level detail of each shipment.
ClearChain technology suite also supports:
- Delivery and order management
- Route planning and scheduling
- Fleet management and dispatching
- Onboard communication to optimize routes and keep the supply chain moving
If a disruption occurs, ClearChain's apps bring instant visibility. Together, Penske associates and customers find the best ways to mitigate the disruption and navigate around it.
ClearChain applications are able to share relevant data. This connectivity gives you real-time visibility of available assets when you need additional capacity to complete a move.
Rest assured with best-in-class data security
Because information drives successful supply chain operations, data must be secure and available. Penske uses best-in-class capabilities to provide secure data storage and analysis. This means your information stays protected, gets backed up appropriately, and always remains accessible.
Technology keeps your supply chain moving
At the end of every shipment is a person or group of people waiting on a load. When the supply chain stops moving, people keep waiting, creating many potential financial, customer service and operational headaches. By using the ClearChain technology suite, you can access data that will help you ensure continuous operations, satisfy your customers and drive business results.
