Bringing Order to Chaos: DDC FPO Unleashes the Power of Unstructured Data

Powered by machine learning, the latest addition to DDC FPO’s technology suite swiftly cleanses and structures unstructured data into crucial insights.

The Challenge

In recent years, supply chain leaders have recognized the crucial role of innovating data collection and utilization. Despite notable technological advances, the logistics industry still predominantly generates unstructured data across its operations, estimated at 80 to 90%.

Leveraging unstructured data from freight documents, including bills of lading (BOLs), provides valuable insights for anticipating customer needs, streamlining operations, and mitigating risks.

Extracting customer behavior patterns allows proactive adjustments to offerings while identifying supply chain inefficiencies, enhancing overall efficiency, and reducing costs. Unstructured data analysis uncovers potential risks, enabling early identification for implementing preventive measures and contingency plans against delays or issues with specific suppliers.

However, dealing with unstructured data brings inherent challenges. The sheer volume, lack of standardization, and varied formats make processing complex. Extracting meaningful insights demands advanced analytics tools, often expensive and intricate.

Security concerns arise as unstructured data may contain sensitive information, necessitating stringent measures for compliance with privacy regulations. Logistics professionals face information overload and integration complexities. Data quality, accuracy, and regulatory compliance require a robust technological infrastructure.

This resource-intensive process demands a commitment to advanced analytics and staying updated on technological advancements.
