Hong Kong, Hong Kong (PressExposure) August 15, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ Zetland Corporate Services is proposing an innovative new approach to managing the investment profile of its home country, Hong Kong. The investment management service would like to see smart supply chain technology implemented in business and logistics.
Smart supply chain technology can help counter several of the most pressing challenges in logistics, including: â¢ Visibility: The ability to discover, and therefore act, on the right information â¢ Risk management: Creating flexible structures and contingency plans to meet unexpected situations â¢ Globalization: While it brings opportunities, it also slows down lead times and increases logistics costs, and can create quality issues.
The investment management service would like to see some of the tools of the twenty-first century being adopted in a widespread manner across Hong Kong's supply chain. Tools such as radio frequency networks, sensors, actuators and meters could greatly enhance the supply chain, according to Zetland.
Jason Weatherhead, of Zetland's Hong Kong office, believes that these technologies will help Hong Kong move out of the global slump faster, and greatly improve long-term investment prospects in the region. "If Hong Kong is to prosper, we need to differentiate ourselves from all the other regions. Smart supply chain technology offers simple changes that could make a huge difference to businesses ... and therefore make our region much more attractive as an offshore investment business hub", Mr. Weatherhead said.
Smart supply chain technology has been implemented at a corporate level in many global organizations, including: â¢ IBM â¢ Volkswagen â¢ Airbus
