As a sort of case in point, consider the oft-villainized palm oil industry, which demands is members routinely attend and participate in global roundtables, undergo regular inspections and re-certifications, and provide clear chains of custody to any body of inquiry, to include routine customers.
What’s more, these same manufacturers, shippers, and sellers all need to take care in protecting their triple bottom line and reputation as palm oil deforestation directly contributes to the loss of such endangered species as orangutans and Sumatran tigers.
Instead of trying to appease consumers, investors, and NGOs solo, however, supply chain partners would be wise to invest in ParceLive since the technology is secure and provides real-time data on not only potential breaches within the palm oil shipping process, but also helps improve the efficiency of movements around the globe by monitoring for chokepoints and border delays.
Traction through action:
All that aside, it shouldn’t take a house landing on any industry or firm to wake up supply chain leaders to the ill effects of ignoring the importance of transparency (no matter how one defines the term).
By taking action in monitoring shipments, be they palm oil or ruby red shoes, ParceLive begins the data capture process for a firm in a friendly, turnkey manner with respect to current enterprise and resource planning processes previously in use by a shipper, receiver, or warehouse.
What’s more, Hanhaa sees itself as a partner within any customer supply chain and frequently attends transparency forums, be they industry- or NGO-focused.
Thus, Hanhaa invites all supply chain companies to join in shifting the paradigm away from one of mere compliance in favour of building out secure global networks intended to improve the lives of farmers, consumers, and executive officers alike.
Conclusion & call-to-action:
And so, whilst there is no place like home, it should not take one (that is, a house from Kansas!) falling on an entire operation to alert supply chain personnel and logisticians to the fact that they, too, are increasingly being held accountability for sustainability initiatives the world over.
Whether this is fair or not is beside the point as disputes and other legal matters can also ruin a firm’s reputation and negatively impact their first, second, and third bottom lines, or those of profit, people, and planet.
In order to avoid such an outcome (and avoid putting on a pair of red slippers!), supply chain firms would be wise to invest in technology that acts as not only a monitoring system, but also a data and information repository should the need for an ultimately audits arise.
This is precisely what ParceLive did, does, and will continue to do; not just for lions, tigers, and bears (OH MY!), but for the simple fact that good business is only good so long as it is sustainable, smart, and easily communicable with all.
