Where are my products and in what condition? Track & trace throughout the logistics chain – Presented by Erik Ekkel, Ahrma at the Cargo Innovation Conference, which takes place on June 14, 2017, at Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.
As a customer we are used to receiving (real time) track & trace information of our package, ordered from an online web-store. Why is it that in professional logistics channels this information is not available to all interested parties and how can we solve this?
