Amazing visibility to the supply chain

In spite of working in the supply chain area for 12 years, I am often pleasantly surprised at some simple things.

Like tracking a FedEx package, I can now see Sharmila’s new car proceeding thru the factory in Japan. This morning it has rolled off the factory and is waiting at the dock to be loaded onto the ship tonite.

It still takes too much time to actually get possession, but when you see that thing move thru the supply chain, somehow the wait does not seem that painful!!

    This is great – we track our med shipments too – they go from UPS to the local post office where they may sit for a day or two but when we take the tracking bill in with us the PO ‘”suddenly finds” the package…. I think this part of electronics is well worth it….
