Logistics & Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management Platforms

There are a number of platforms which help you manage your supply chain (see: The ExportersAlmanac - Supply Chain Solutions). Depending on your circumstances they can help to significantly reduce the costs of managing your supply chain – and make it much more efficient.


A development to bear in mind is the impact that the deployment of blockchain technology will have on the management of supply chain documentation. Expect to see a major section in the next edition of this Guide on the benefits that blockchain will bring to supply chain management. In the meantime, just some of the benefits can be summarised as follows:

  • Elimination of content conflict between documentation covering the same shipment.
  • Faster border crossing processing.
  • Faster payments.
  • Total transparency and clarity – to all aspects of the documentation.
  • Increased use of artificial intelligence to facilitate processing and administration.
  • Better statistical analysis – in real-time.
