Douglas fumigant products monitored by arviem

Arviem AG announced today that its cargo monitoring service supports the reliable delivery of Douglaschemical products to clients all around the world.

More and more companies operating a global supply chain realize, that instead of actively managing their supply chain they are mainly experiencing its risks.  Douglas chose to manage its global supply chain by using arviem services, a control tower based Cargo Monitoring Service being an end-to-end service, available on a ‘pay-as-you-use” basis.

Arviem’s monitoring services enable Douglas to have full visibility at any given time about enhanced ETAs, product integrity and supply chain performance helping to strengthen the reputation for an excellent customer service.
Douglas is shipping among other products fumigants sold under the brand names Vikane and ProFume from the USA to many clients across the world.

“Conventionally used reporting systems hardly allow you to have an overview on the complete end-to-end shipping process”, says Wes Long, Chief Financial Officer at Douglas.

There have been a number of disruptions before and ever since the West Coast port crisis in the USA, from where Douglas is shipping its products, which have spilled over and get companies like Douglas to look more and more into real-time cargo monitoring.

The arviem analytics functionalities allow powerful data collection and aggregation, which enable shipment specific reporting and general supply chain data analysis creating total supply chain visibility.
“Arviem provides continuous insight into what has happened and what is currently happening, which allows to get relevant information more quickly and therefore helps to improve the decision making process for supply chain managers,” says Stefan Reidy, CEO at arviem.

Networked Supply Chains Require Better Visibility

As manufactures and retailers increasingly depend on extended rosters of sourcing companies, the resulting networked supply chain requires improved visibility.

The ability to in real time identify the location and status of the sourced goods gives the importer the ability to fine tune its distribution channels, its inventory management and its ability to fulfill commitments to its end users.
