Over the last decade, an increasingly competitive and global marketplace, along with an explosion in e-commerce, has prompted supply chain designs to become more global and, in turn, more complex. Improving supply chain operations across continents starts with better visibility of transport flows. But implementing a real-time transportation visibility (RTTV) solution requires a globally-minded collaborative approach, accounting for the diverse range of languages, cultures, I.T. systems, devices and levels of technical competence. A solution must be scalable and cover key regions throughout the world.
As the demand for RTTV platforms grows, so too do carrier networks. In the past 2.5 years, we’ve been amazed to see our carrier network double to more than 140,000 reflecting the rapid expansion of our customer base (now the fastest growing in Europe). The Shippeo platform tracks over 2.5 million trucks across 70 countries worldwide making 9 million shipments per year. In 2020 alone, bringing on several new international customers led to greater shipment tracking capabilities in 21 new markets, across all EMEA, with a growing focus on Africa, CIS countries and Northern Europe.
