Research cites GateHouse Logistics’ data sharing service; ghTrack as a leading solution for real-time transportation visibility.
In April 2018, Gartner issued research highlighting the fact that logistics’ customers continue to ask for more real-time visibility into their orders and shipments. To meet their growing needs and to create internal efficiencies, supply chain leaders turn to real-time visibility platforms, such as that of GateHouse Logistics’ ghTrack® service to provide this capability and to drive greater enterprise efficiencies.
Discussions with chief supply chain officers during Gartner events and the customer survey conducted for the 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems” indicates that supply chain visibility is a top priority.
Gartner research found that a lack of supply chain visibility often creates internal and external warehousing and transportation inefficiencies, and an increase in transportation costs, such as carrier waiting times and customer fines.
Telematics and mobile technology in transportation provide the needed source and real-time aspect of data that could be shared with other supply chain partners to address the need for visibility. ghTrack leads the way when it comes to transforming data from all the telematics systems on today’s market into one logical data stream. With more than 450 integrations ghTrack is the market leader.
“Gartner’s research pinpoints the need of customers in the supply chain for real-time visibility of their multi-million-dollar truckloads,” says Jesper Bennike, CEO, GateHouse Logistics. “As a champion of secure data distribution, our ghTrack service is helping customers to gain business advantage through real-time data visibility and slashing millions of dollars out of shipping costs every day of the year.”
Gartner also highlighted the advantages of GateHouse Logistics’ solutions in another research note earlier this year entitled “Macro Trends Affecting the Transportation Management System Market.”
