The damage and loss of products in supply chain cost the industry billions of dollars every year. That’s a huge amount of money and waste in products that are being thrown out –  That’s the issue Spotsee is tackling with their product: indicators that track and record data such as temperature, tilt and impact throughout a shipment journey. There are a lot of challenges in this area that supply chain professionals are facing, Angela talks about the top realities companies are facing and how exactly Spotsee can help you save time, money and waste.

Spotsee allows companies to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to damaged products.

In the long run, this is a much more sustainable business model which can give companies a huge competitive advantage.
