Evaluation of Information Visibility Benefits Downstream in the Supply Chain: The Case of Finished Vehicle Transportation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become an important element to support complex supply chain management and logistics operations. The adoption of ICT has made possible to experience levels of information visibility across the entire supply chain never experienced before. However, it has been argued that the full implications of information visibility on supply chains have not been fully explored, for example existing research has mostly addressed information visibility upstream. The use of advanced ICT solutions gives the possibility to achieve information visibility upstream and downstream to assist activities relying on complex logistics arrangements such as finished vehicle logistics by facilitating access to more reliable information that can be used to generate better forecasts as well as the creation of synergies for better use of logistical resources.
