The Germany-based chemical company, BASF, has confirmed its one of the first companies to leverage its Orchestration Platform to bring the speed of now to supply chain through the help of Elementum.

Through increasing its global operations with unified data and orchestration capabilities, BASF will now have the capabilities to track products across the world.

By supporting global supply chains, the platform will assess potential problems, assess and prioritise challenges the teams should focus on.

In a press release, Frithjof Netzer, Chief Digital Officer of BASF said: “At BASF, we are embracing digital technologies to gain orchestration capabilities across our supply chain. We handle 6.5 million deliveries per year globally across all modes of transport.”

“With the help of Elementum's platform, we gain end-to-end transparency of shipment status and the ability to take action so that we can identify problems, mitigate risks, and better serve our customers.”

Imagine orchestrating thousands of suppliers, factories, truck drivers, and distribution centers towards a common goal: getting products to customers quickly, consistently, and efficiently.”

“By organizing the world's supply chain data into the Product Graph, Elementum's platform alerts global companies before teams are stuck firefighting, and before customers raise issues that could have been avoided.”
