One of the core objectives of digitalisation in transport logistics is achieving a transparent and end-to-end view of the entire supply chain. The digital supply chain plays a decisive role in this. In addition to data from classic IT systems such as CRM or ERP, Internet-of-Things solutions are increasingly being used to track vehicles and transported goods. When combined with artificial intelligence, this data enables timely adjustments to workflows and the optimisation of logistical processes. This provides cost benefits and improves customer satisfaction.
Digitalisation and automation of financial processes
Thanks to Supply Chain 4.0 digital solutions, including IoT and blockchain, T-Systems and its partners have connected the physical and financial supply chains. The technology automates all processes involving financial transactions or services and ensures that payment targets are met on time. This is crucial in solving daunting challenges around procurement, payment automation, inventory management, and end-to-end supply chain visibility.
Going paperless with delivery notes
Apart from the sustainability aspect, the ‘Digital delivery note’ solution dramatically speeds up delivery processes and saves several days of work. The contactless handover using a QR code scan, the digital signature, and the elimination of delivery note printing also speak in favour of this. The adoption and standardisation of digital delivery notes will decisively increase supply chain efficiency.
