Perfect order fulfillment requires companies to have seamless integration of all supply chain execution (SCE) including, logistics processes from manufacturing, transportation, warehouse, global trade to mobile and RFID. Recent research from Gartner reveals that most supply chain organizations continue to operate as functional silos – warehousing, transportation and manufacturing – with minimal, if any, process integration and synchronization between execution silos. The Gartner Research report provides key insights into how supply chain and IT leaders can transform logistics by breaking down functional silos, and designing business processes that span, optimize and synchronize across traditional functional domains.
