Horizon International Cargo has launch its own dedicated supply chain IT system, hicloud.
hicloud provides a dashboard interface that allows clients to have total control and visibility over their products and supply chain partners.
It can be tailored across industries to fit the supply chain of any business, including Horizon's toys and games clients.
Horizon's supply chain development manager, Tony Leach, explained that hicloud is all about achieving end to end visibility throughout the extended supply chain and translating top level supply chain strategy into operational best practice. The transparency allows for greater control and the flexibility to deliver goods globally in the most efficient and cost effective way.
"Horizon continually invests in people, infrastructure and information technology in order to offer innovative freight forwarding services and supply chain management solutions for existing and new clients," Leach said. "As well as reinvestment, we believe that constant evaluation and adaptability are critical factors for delivering success to our customers, whose own business environments constantly continue to change.
"On the back of this commitment, we have made a considerable investment in further developing our secure and robust supply chain systems, which has resulted in the launch of hicloud."
