Logistics and freight forwarding provider Horizon International Cargo has announced the launch of a supply-chain oriented IT system.
The technology, hicloud, is expected to provide customers with increased visibility over their products and supply chain partners.
Horizon operates heavily within the automotive and parts logostics industries.
The system will monitor performance throughout the supply chain and transmit information back to clients and customers. Through Horizon’s data cloud, the global flow of goods and trade supporting information is managed from order point through to final delivery. It is expected that the new technology will allow for problems to be dealt with and resolved quicker and more efficiently.
Horizon international cargo’s supply chain development manager, Tony Leach, commented that hicloud represented a considerable investment in the company’s supply chain systems.
