In the Visibility Council, innovative leaders work toward digital supply chain transformation
Pleasanton, Calif., December 08, 2021 – Blume Global, a leading provider of transportation execution and visibility technology empowered by the largest globally connected multi-modal logistics network, has joined the Visibility Council, a coalition of leading supply chain executives committed to accelerating transformation in the supply chain.
Through regular meetings, the Visibility Council works to facilitate discussions around supply chain digital transformation, logistics technology and related topics in a neutral environment. This unfettered exchange of ideas is key to solving the pressing logistics issues of the day – ocean port inefficiencies, chassis scarcity, reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the supply chain, among others – through a digital lens. It also focuses on how digital transformation can enable more effective supply chains in the future.
The council sees itself as the connective tissue between individual logistics stakeholders and broader market trends that need to be addressed at the collective level.
“At the Visibility Council, we provide our members with the insight needed to make more informed, more intentional, and more impactful action in today’s global supply chain,” said Ben Bellamy, managing partner of the Visibility Council. “Blume Global is a significant, meaningful addition to our collective of leading supply chain companies, and we look to their insight and supply chain technology expertise to help propel us forward as an organization.”
Council members include top-level executives from Microsoft, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, General Mills, and Foot Locker, among others. These leaders work together to identify their industry’s most pressing logistics technology needs and develop collaborative frameworks to create solutions.
“Data standardization is the next major hurdle to global supply chain technology transformation, and we joined the Visibility Council to provide thought leadership in that area, as well as our insight, built up over nearly three decades in the supply chain industry, into logistics execution and transportation management,” said Blume Global CEO Pervinder Johar. “I’m looking forward to helping form innovative, collaborative solutions to logistics issues.”
