Logistics Costing

Companies often work to optimize costs in functional silos, but these discrete efforts risk driving costs down one silo while increasing them in another – resulting in an overall negative bottom-line impact. Taking effective cost actions requires transparency across the supply chain that connects data from purchasing, procurement, transportation, logistics, sales, customer service, and other value-added services to create an end-to-end connected view of costs.
