These re­sult in higher in­ven­tory in sup­ply chain and hence higher lo­gis­tics costs.”Em­pha­sis­ing on the need for dis­rupt­ing the in­ef­fi­cient sup­ply chain cy­cle, he added, “Tech­nol­ogy will be play­ing a very crit­i­cal role in the freight In­dus­try, multi-modal cargo com­mu­nity sys­tem is a break­through in­no­va­tion for the in­dus­try that helps the ex­porters, im­porters, for­warders, cus­toms bro­kers, cus­to­di­ans, ground han­dlers, air­lines, ship­ping lines, cham­bers of com­merce, cus­toms, local reg­u­la­tory author­i­ties ex­change data with each other dig­i­tally us­ing sev­eral forms of elec­tronic data in­ter­change (EDI).
