SAP Logistics Business Network

Stay Competitive by Extending Your Supply Chain Visibility

With increased supply chain complexity comes opportunity for products to be lost, misdirected, stolen, counterfeited—or merely delayed. These challenges and other supply chain disruptions and inefficiencies not only cost time and money. They also interfere with businesses’ ability to maintain a flexible supply chain that can satisfy consumers’ growing desire for convenient and almost immediate access to safer, fresher goods and services.  

Companies need full end-to-end visibility throughout their extended supply chain network to meet these challenges. The solution is a digital, connected supply chain that offers a holistic view of real-time data across business partners, systems and processes for proactively identifying issues and making critical decisions.
