How Can Cargo Signal Improve the Electronics Industry?

Untitled design (2)-Sep-08-2023-07-37-23-7655-PMThe electronics industry moves fast. Not only is product being shipped rapidly, what’s innovative today is obsolete tomorrow–making it a particularly fast-paced sector. Those working in electronics need to be able to effectively manage their supply chain and deliver the newest technology on demand, or they may fall out of sight, out of mind, and out of style. Moving product safely and efficiently is a priority to stay ahead.

Here are just a few challenges the electronic industry faces without real-time visibility of product:  

  • Theft of highly desirable cargo in transit, including new product launches or prototypes 
  • Damage to fragile components and equipment 
  • Inability to track inventory surplus or shortages efficiently, especially during new product rollouts 
  • Slowdowns along the national and international supply chain   

Optimize Inventory Forecasting 

Without full visibility of your inventory, you can’t plan your production and delivery schedule effectively. Tracking your shipments in real time with Cargo Signal gives you control. You’ll know what’s already come in, what’s still in transit, and when you can expect a crucial component.

Need a rush shipment of mobile phone accessories because the last shipment never arrived? Need to reroute an incoming shipment of gaming consoles to a nearby distribution center or storefront that needs them more? With Cargo Signal, you’ll be able to keep an eye on things and maintain flexibility. Our Command Center will work with you to make sure you get what you need where you need it so your supply chain performs at peak efficiency.  

Safeguard Your Shipments 

Moving high-value merchandise or confidential new products or prototypes intended for launch makes them vulnerable to theft or damage. Without real-time visibility, you’re risking devastating financial losses or even the loss of years of innovation. Cargo Signal’s Security Alerts can prevent that from happening. If your freight falls vulnerable to theft, Cargo Signal will sound the alarm and our Command Center will get authorities on the scene. You’ll also decrease the likelihood of damage in transit.

Cargo Signal gives you complete oversight of your supply chain and automates your inventory oversight so you don’t have to make a guessing game out of how many hands it will take to load or unload product at one of your facilities or how many carriers you’ll need to hire to move product from one location to another. Complete oversight means saved time and labor. And saved time and labor means saved money.
