Location Analytics Will Help Leading Third-Party Logistics Provider Streamline Service to Customers Worldwide
Redlands, California—February 25, 2014—Esri announces that Flash Global Logistics, a global aftermarket third party logistics (3PL) service provider for mission-critical service parts and product logistics, has adopted the Esri ArcGIS platform. Flash's staff can now use location information to manage complex delivery schedules and monitor drivers and inventory throughout the day. It helps provide customers with the high-quality service they expect.
"ArcGIS complements Flash's clients' network optimization processes by enhancing output visualizations and improving the turnaround time for complex analysis of network statistical data," says Douglas Ray, director of quality and performance for Flash. "Network optimization adds a tremendous value to all Flash clients globally. It reduces costs and ensures service-level agreements are consistently met."
Using ArcGIS technology, Flash can combine information from many sources to view supply chain operations including logistics activities and trends by location. This allows Flash to proactively plan business by more effectively managing service-level agreements. It also takes the guesswork out of the strategic movement, management, and tracking of critical parts and products worldwide.
"We are pleased to provide technology that will help Flash provide even better service globally for its customers," says Wolfgang Hall, logistics industry manager at Esri. "GIS and location analytics help combine the intelligence that Flash needs to know about market conditions and delivery service requirements to help streamline the supply chain."
