One small step for FMS, one giant leap for supply chain efficiency?

One small step for FMS, one giant leap for supply chain efficiency?

Wow, Masternaut's acquistion of ICM is pretty significant – finally supply chains have a fighting chance of seamless operations if there is integration between the FMS (fleet management systems) and back end systems.

Telematics service provider + back-office systems integrator = a big step in the right direction!

Actually feeding FMS data into logistics management processes will be key to increasing the value of telematics for logistics customers who are craving increased effciency – simply knowing where your vehicles are just isn't enough.

Critical participants in the supply chain need to be kept in the know so that they can act in unison if a truck breaks down or a fault occurs on a reefer container transporting milk.

In fact Kuehne + Nagel is planning to discuss just that;not just the need for milk to be delivered on time and at the right temperature,but the massive potential benefits of sharing info across the supply chain at the Logistics show in Amsterdam

Fleet and logistics IT providers should sit up and take note! Read the full Masternaut & ICM announcementhere.
