Real-Time Logistics Intelligence


Monitor and track your assets across the supply-chain


OMNITROL asset and inventory traceability (TaaS™) would not be complete without tracking and reconciling items shipped across your supplier and partner sites. Real-time Logistics Intelligence provides our customers with a global track & trace (GTT) Smart Infrastructure™ services to track all types of assets across the supply chain. This includes monitoring finished goods to partners, distribution centers, and end-customers. Most enterprises will integrate their purchasing and warehouse management systems (WMS) to track their shipments. However, reconciliation of assets as they move between sites is not always accurate or timely, furthermore, many of these shipments are moved using expensive returnable containers that are not easily tracked during these processes.


Omnitrol's TaaS™ Logistics Intelligence provides full visibility of all assets that need to be tracked and monitored as they are utilized at each stage of the supply chain. Tracking items needs to also include monitoring materials that have limited shelf-lives and availability attributes that are not easily obtained by simply locating an asset. In order to successfully complete the journey associated with global track and trace services, customers need to reconcile the receipt and condition of items to facilitate appropriate alerts to manage replenishments and achieve optimal utilization of their returnable assets.
