Lean and reliable digital supply chains – T-Scale platform case study

Existing business model supply chains organisation results in inefficient use of transport resources, high transport costs, increasing congestions and CO₂ emission. This effect has been demonstrated by research conducted by the author as well as by the European Environmental Agency. To change this situation companies are in need of affordable, reliable and trusted data-interchange solutions to take part in international trade and commerce flows. The aim of this paper is to present practical implementation of the developed by the authors concept of global freight management ecosystem and its practical implementation using T-Scale platform. T-Scale enables co-opetition between independent transport users and transport service providers. The work is summarized by the major benefits of collaboration achieved by the group of companies operating in the FMCG sector in Poland.
