The logistics control towers at Schneider Electric manage the complexity of logistics by providing visibility across functions, countries and modalities. At the heart of the control tower is an information hub supported by a set of decision-making rules, managed by a skilled team of operatives using technology. The big advantage of this central information hub is that it gathers and integrates data from a variety of sources, stores it and then distributes it in a consistent format. In this webinar, Schneider Electric’s Jean Baptiste Delafoy sets out the logistics control tower journey, what is has meant to its customers, as well as the overall business, logistics and supply chain capabilities.
