The logistics chain and information provision
Logistics is accompanied by information exchange. This is necessary to control the process. Examples of this information exchange: an order, a status message, a schedule, customs documents, traffic information, etc. If there is no integrated goods flow control, the various links function more or less “independently” of each other and it is impossible for a chain director to steer everything in the right direction.
To properly manage all logistics processes, it is very important to properly process the information flows. Where, when and how should the goods be delivered? The logistics depend on good organization.
With integrated goods flow control, the various information flows are interconnected.
It is clear from the above that there are many data flows. Very many systems that need to communicate with each other and need each other’s data. All these systems also deliver the data in various formats and this data is not always complete. By using Dovetail it is possible to always have all the data that is needed complete and in the correct format.
