Gravity Supply Chain’s suite of applications enables shippers, logistics providers, and manufacturers to access information that tracks movements from product concept to sourcing to receipt at the destination warehouse. This information builds a full picture of the supply chain network that enables an immediate response to events and helps simplify business-critical decisions that mitigate disruption and maintain performance.
Businesses are unique and so are their challenges
From third-party logistics providers to freight forwarders and shippers, each face a unique set of challenges based on their circumstances. Gravity Supply Chain solutions take a customer service-driven approach and tap Gravity Supply Chain’s breadth of industry experience to understand pain points and deliver solutions that solve challenges.
Changing consumer demand cycles require quick action
One of the great lessons of 2020 was that demand cycles change rapidly, which require an immediate response to stay ahead of disruptions. For example, Gravity Supply Chain worked with a retail client to digitally enhance its supply chain to respond to a changing consumer demand cycle. The retail client needed to address their customers’ needs quickly in order to maintain customer loyalty and protect retention rates. Gravity Supply Chain provided a dynamic platform enabling all stakeholders to collaborate – including vendors, agents, and logistics providers. The platform helped the retailer achieve a data-driven supply chain that informed on insightful decisions about customer demands and the results were impressive:
- A 30% reduction in lead time from product concept to stores (25 weeks)
- 91% full sell-through of seasonal ranges, up from 88%
- A 32% reduction in the cash conversion cycle
A flat hierarchy keeps ideas flowing
