Digital Voices: what does the future of the supply chain look like?

An acute shortage of chips, an automotive industry that was ground to a halt, shipping prices through the roof, and to top it all off: the disaster in the Suez Canal. The need for a more efficient and digitized supply chain became clear during the pandemic. Newspapers De Tijd and L’Echo gathered industry specialists to talk about the future of the supply chain, including some of Flexso’s own experts. These are the insights from the conversation.

The ODTH case: turning data in to real insights

Logistics company ODTH has seen the industry evolve over the past decades. Digitization was the biggest driver for innovation: the use of realtime data changed the rules of the game. Together with Flexso, ODTH created dashboards to present this realtime data efficiently and in a user-friendly way. Using SAP as a leverage, abstract data have been transformed in to clear insights for their logistics.
