A lack of precise knowledge of current and imminent commodity availability timing, quantities and qualities makes sourcing and inventory management difficult and inefficient.
Poor or unknown quality constrains pricing and access to profitable markets.
An inefficient supply chain can slow the journey of commodities to market, increasing spoilage and reducing profitability.
Without a clear understanding of commodities’ path from farm to market, recalls can be time-consuming and expensive.
Handling financial payments manually causes delays and introduces opportunities for human error.
Having non-productive or under-performing participants in the supply chain can siphon off profit and slow commodity journey to market.
Keeping operating and purchasing costs down is essential to maintaining a healthy bottom line.
Real-time commodity sourcing data – what is available, arriving and when - is critical to accurate forecasting and management of inventory.
Difficulty accessing markets and finding qualified buyers can increase storage costs and wastage.
Easy and efficient scheduling and tracking of inventory arrival, storage and departure can maximize capacity utilization and volume.
