PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2014) - Today's international logistics and trade professionals face rising demands for improved agility and resiliency in supply chain execution, driving the need for enhanced visibility into global shipping information. But in order to gain the full benefits of supply chain shipment visibility, the available data must be timely and consistent -- and delivered with the high level of accuracy required by logistics management professionals.
