What is a control tower?

  • a seamless coordination across departments, countries and suppliers

  • an expert group that manages, drives and further develops the supply chain and product flow for your business

  • a central information center with an overview of all data, to easily address opportunities and risks

  • it identifies all possibilities and synergies to optimise combinations in the flow of goods and reduce cost


How to build a control tower?

  • a control tower should be established and defined as an own operational function

  • logistics experts are gathered and working in teams with your own key people

  • the team can consist of

    • people with background from supply chain and flow of goods

    • people with background from the transport industry

    • people with BI competence – improvements in operational work

    • people with 3PL background

    • people with background from IT that can exchange data between the parties

  • ​generate reports that show total costs, divided per single products

3. Prognoses
  • the analysis documents the supply chain in real time and gives a good base to see potential improvement areas

  • ​make prognoses that provide predictability all the way down to the daily operational level, and estimated time of arrivals

  • predictable supply chain costs and demand

4. Implementation
