Technology company ZF provides its customers worldwide with components for just-in-sequence production. Material bottlenecks due to supply delays quickly lead to major production problems. For critical overseas transport that is prone to delays, ZF has teamed up with SupplyOn to implement a system that continuously monitors the transport status at the material level and in real-time. It provides advance notice of delays, thus ensuring stable production processes. Read more
The construction of an aircraft is preceded by a highly complex, sophisticated procurement process. Almost every aircraft at Airbus is unique – and consists of around one million individual parts. Managing this is a challenge in itself. It becomes even more complex when, as at Airbus, almost a dozen locations in Europe and Canada coordinate operational purchasing. In order to act more efficiently, Airbus has developed a four-pillar model in which AirSupply from SupplyOn plays a key role. For the impressive results of this digital transformation, Airbus was selected as one of three finalists of the German Logistics Award 2019. Read more

These are precisely the questions we’re going to get to the bottom of here.
In an interview at the end of last year, SupplyOn Group blockchain expert Ralf Knobloch spoke about the potential offered by blockchain technology in the area of supply chain management. This time we talked to him about the criteria he uses to carry out an advance assessment regarding the suitability and cost-effectiveness of a possible blockchain use case. Read more
Cool music comes out of the speakers. And yet concentrated silence reigns. Many colleagues sit around the large conference table – working student next to manager, product developer next to consultant next to support staff. Everyone is engrossed in their screens, clicking and typing. In between a chat, some jokes or nibbling at sweets. But never do they lose sight of their goal: Finding a bug. Read more
SupplyOn China recently received the Best Project Team Award from Schaeffler for its 3PL project. The project was started in August 2018, with the first wave being completed in mid-December. Further two waves are in roll-out. In the first step, 30 external warehouses will be connected. This number will continue to rise in the future.
