Mitigating Risk in Ocean Shipping: A Supply Chain Executive's Action Plan
Real time visibility into where shipments are, where they are going and when they will get there is key for shippers to minimize and mitigate risks to supply chains brought about by shortages, climate change, labor scarcities and pandemic fatigue. A high level of visibility is also key for CSCOs and other executives to maintain the integrity and efficiency of their operations. According to the 2021 Gartner View from the Board of Directors survey, six out of ten boards of directors of manufacturing companies ramped up digital initiatives to address disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Digital Twin: The Technology of the Future in Shipping and Logistics
A digital twin is essentially a virtual simulation of real-life situations that can generate countless scenarios to fill gaps in data and help with planning and proactively overcome challenges. A May 2022 study by IQAX found that the use of prediction models increases the accuracy of estimated times of arrival by an average of between 20% to 30%. By using a digital twin, IQAX TrackIt gives users access to significant improvements in terms of data and information compared to only using an electronic data interchange (EDI).
