This mechanism must be driven not simply by external impacts, such as floods in Houston or explosions in Tianjin.

RFID tags and robotic warehouse systems generate and transmit data that, when combined with other data sources, allow companies to optimize the supply chain and make better predictions and forecasts to improve efficiency and boost the bottom line.
