In fact, the benefits of specific technologies, such as radio-frequency identification (RFID) and global positioning systems (GPS) are already used in this company. The effective usage of such existing information technologies can already yield major efficiency and ecological benefits in the supply chain. Quehenberger Logistics create IT interfaces in order to optimized and harmonized IT systems and connect all the players around the world in the most cost-effective way, who can then seamlessly follow what is happening along the entire chain of transportation and across all continents and modes of transport.
