System provides customers complete visibility to shipments anywhere in the world

Exel, the North American supply chain management and Deutsche Post World Net company, announced the complete implementation of a global transportation management technology system that provides its customers visibility to shipments anywhere in the world. With the launch of its supply chain command and control (SC3) transportation system, Exel is the first third-party logistics company to use a common platform across all continents.

SC3 is a Web-based application through which Exel customers can better manage inventories, shipment lead times, delivery dates, freight costs and lane volume forecasts. The system also alerts users to disruptions in the supply chain. For companies using multiple carriers, SC3 shows progress in one single view across all transportation partners.

‘As the new standard for Exel Transportation Management customers, SC3 offers unparalleled visibility to inventory-in-motion regardless of where it is in the world and which carrier is moving the freight,’ said Mike Clark, vice president of transportation at Exel. ‘Our extensive experience with this product, state-of-the-art support network and mature implementation process allow us to offer our customers an industry-first capability that will help them better manage and control their supply chains, so they can concentrate on their core businesses.’

Exel’s transportation management technology leverages an Oracle-based system that helps users manage all aspects of the transportation process and is also configurable to local practices and standardized for global information. Exel is also a member of the Oracle’ PartnerNetwork.
