Many industries, such as Oil and Gas, Mining, Manufacturing, Automotive, and Transportation & Logistics, rely on smooth supply chain performance, especially those with operations in remote locations. With digital transformation, all industries are experiencing an unprecedented change to processes especially companies with remote areas. Due to said change, companies should be mindful when managing logistics remotely, as the tasks involved can be cumbersome around procuring, storing, and transporting goods in more than one remote area. Remote Logistics Management (RLM) provides functions for supplying materials from base locations to remote locations (e.g., offshore oil platforms).

The field of remote logistics management is continuously evolving. Despite having the best-in-class software in place, i.e., SAP ERP, many companies fail to achieve its ROI due to dependency on slower, paper-based processes and the unavailability of access of real-time data. To make the right, and best decisions, users/managers should have full visibility and access to real-time data, but the limitations mentioned above thwart the goal of end-to-end transparency and may lead to customer dissatisfaction, resulting in potential lost profits for the supply chain.

With digitization taking hold in today's business environment, companies expect faster time-to-market as they need to drive greater efficiency to achieve profitability while simplifying complex operations. Industrial customers expect to receive orders/shipments faster and with far more transparency. Companies need to take control of their supply chain and ensure processes take place seamlessly, at excellent speed to meet customer demand. Since the success of a company largely depends on their supply chain efficiency and the extent to which it can delight its customers, an effective inventory and warehouse management is even more crucial for sustainability as business transactions take place on a global scale.
