If you have shipments that originate across Europe, the Europe Control Tower team gathers and consolidates data from vendors, manufacturers and carriers to monitor and manage customer supply chains, distributing updates in a consistent format. We detect issues, risks and pitfalls at the earliest stage, which means that correcting action can be initiated and product flows maintained at optimum performance.
The heart of our control tower is the supply chain and logistics information hub that is supported and maintained by a dedicated team in our Netherlands office, located strategically by Schiphol airport. Status updates are collected continuously from suppliers, MIQ consolidation hubs and carriers to provide the Control Tower team with a clear picture on the actual status of purchase orders, product in stock and shipments that are in preparation or in transit.
