    - by Transplace

    By actively monitoring unforeseen events like global pandemics and natural disasters in real-time, Transplace uses our advanced technology to report on supply chain vulnerabilities and disruptions in shipments, allowing shippers to make decisions quickly and efficiently. To further support shipper’s efforts to mitigate logistics disruptions, we recently developed a new breakthrough feature displaying vital COVID-19 location impact on global shipments through our Transplace TMS Control Tower and Public Tracking Portal, an innovative track and trace solution designed to provide end-to-end visibility of any shipment’s movement globally in the Transplace TMS. The upgraded capability helps users quickly visualize and anticipate pockets of risk for shipments in route.
