At the Odette Conference, there is much less blah-blah and much more real solutions than anywhere else to help you overcome the supply chain challenges you face today. The event also offers supply chain professionals and IT experts unique networking opportunities at the international level.
The transportation of production parts may be compromised for many reasons, especially in long distance supply chains. The customer needs to know as quickly as possible what impact a delay in the transport chain could have on the current production plan but often the link between the contents of a shipment and the means of transport carrying that shipment is missing, especially in a 4 corner model where actors are not in an established relationship or use web portals to carry out activities such as, ad-hoc ordering and confirmation of transport capacity.
The automotive industry is increasingly moving to smaller pack quantities, for both deliveries and trackside storage, which has led to more and more tray and blister packaging being used. These very small packaging sizes pose particular challenges for labelling even with the small load container labels already specified by Odette. To meet these challenges, the Odette Technology Group has designed two even smaller labels which can carry the main data items of the Global Transport Label.
ECG and Odette have come together to develop a ground-breaking standard for VIN labels to help overcome inefficiencies in the process of delivering finished vehicles to its final destination. And it’s already under deployment by Volvo Cars worldwide.
AutoID technologies depend on the reading of standard codes called Data Identifiers. Those used in the Automotive Supply Chain have been compiled in a JAIF document to harmonise implementation worldwide and encourage correct usage.
In the drive to further digitalisation of automotive supply
chain processes, the use of APIs to complement traditional EDI messages is taking
hold and the inbound transport process is a perfect candidate for the
introduction of APIs to bridge the current digital gaps.
Advances in RFID technology have led to increasing requirements for its use appearing in RFQs from automotive customers. It was therefore time to look at developing further recommendations to achieve successful RFID interoperability between partners.
