Logistics

Some would say that retailers, hauliers and warehousers make-up a community – making transport and logistics an obvious candidate for collaboration in the cloud. As well as co-ordinating procurement and delivery, hauliers can even use the cloud to find opportunities to fill empty lorries once their deliveries are made. Others in the chain benefit from the scalability of a pay-as-you-go SaaS, as customer demand is unpredictable.
