Smart Transportation Management Systems to Support Visibility of the Supply Chain Information Types
Paper i proceeding, 2009

The purpose of this paper is to evaluate how much the smart transportation management (STM) systems are affecting visibility of different value-adding supply chain information types (SCIT). A literature study was conducted to identify the STM systems’ cornerstones and the value-adding supply chain information types. Interviews with logistics managers of Swedish industrial and retailing companies were conducted to evaluate how much visibility of different SCITs is affected by using the STM systems. The visibility of information regarding the location of products in supply chain and condition of products in shipment has the largest support from the STM systems out of the interviews with the logistics managers.
