Bertschi and ECTA target improved visibility

LONDON: October 07, 2019. Bertschi has joined the ECTA workgroup in a push to improve supply chain visibility within Bulk liquid flows.

The ECTA workgroup aims to develop an ECTA Transport Data and Message Definition Framework to improve “end to end” Supply Chain Visibility and Collaboration across the Chemical Logistics Bulk Liquid actors. The creation of the workgroup was a shared initiative of Hoyer, Den Hartogh and Bertschi. The three parties started this initiative as they strongly believe in standardization to further optimise the supply chain.

The initial focus of the ECTA workgroup is on providing reliable and continuous updated ETA’s and transport milestone messages, thereby avoiding exchange of huge amounts of raw data and ETA interpretation differences. The overall scope of the initiative is not limited to standardization in transport messages, as it also aims to further look into other areas in the logistics process where standardization would lead to higher efficiency.

As Bertschi believes this is an important step towards further optimization, we have joined this ECTA workgroup. We look forward to work together with other actors in the Chemical Liquid Bulk supply chain to make this initiative a success.
