Supply chain company DHL, announced its adoption of Resilience 360, an end-to-end supply chain risk management platform that alerts customers about global incidents and risks to their global supply chain in almost real time. The new capability would enable DHL to gain an advantage over its counterparts by immediately responding to incidents and pre-empting or minimising business interruption.
Tobias Larsson, Head-DHL Resilience Team, DHL Customer Solutions & Innovation says, “Corporate supply chain organisations operate on a regional basis and are disconnected among regions and even sites. As a result, they lack vis- ibility and span of control beyond their part of the operation. That may work day to day, but when you’re in crisis, it can be a problem.”
The new addition will help customers of DHL to scan the latest position and status of all their shipments worldwide making it easier for them to correlate shipments with disruptive incidents. Peter Schonefeld, Head-Supply Chain Management, Schmitz Cargobull said, “With Resilience360, we´re able to gain better visibility of our end-to-end supply chain and are now aiming to expand this. It gives us the ability to book alternative resources before the competition does in order to make the delivery of our customer order safe.”
