The Stord Cloud Supply Chain

On the cloud supply chain, brands have access to a fully integrated vertical solution -- all the logistics services and technology tools needed for an end-to-end supply chain wrapped up in one pre-integrated cloud platform.

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources, offering computing power, storage and databases as they’re needed without the cost of owning and operating physical data centers and servers.  Execution speeds are faster, capital expenses are swapped for variable costs, and companies can scale their capacity up and down as needed, all while only paying for what they’re currently using.

Applying the Cloud to Supply Chains

The cloud supply chain takes these cloud computing principles and applies them to the end-to-end supply chain. Warehousing and freight are as nimble as the cloud technology itself, as variable costs that are able to flex and scale on demand.

Logistics partners are pre-connected to the cloud supply chain’s integrations hub, providing brands with a control tower view of operations and data necessary for real-time analysis of the entire supply chain. Pre-integrated warehouses and carriers provide the capacity necessary to execute on demand signals, which brands can simply scale up or down as needed.

Benefits of the Cloud Supply Chain
Faster Speed to Market
A single integration into the cloud supply chain is all you need to connect to an entire network of 500+ warehouses, 30+ fulfillment centers and 20,000+ carriers. Book a freight shipment, launch a new warehouse, or test a new distribution model all from the same cloud platform. New initiatives can be launched in days, instead of weeks or months, without the need to draw out timelines with integrations, RFPs and contract negotiations.
Elastic Logistics Capacity
Warehousing and freight services are operated on a pay-as-you-go model, enabling the ability to flex with customer needs. Use Stord’s agility to expand to a new market, test the impact on sales, and scale capacity up or back down as desired. In the case of sudden demand, use the supply chain cloud to meet that demand in 24-48 hours, and just as quickly scale back down once the surge has passed.
Rely on a Single Supply Chain Software
Our platform is designed to centralize your key supply chain activities so that your team can collaborate in one control tower. Using the cloud supply chain dashboard, view supply chain activity across your entire omnichannel footprint from customer order capture, multi-site inventory management, fulfillment operations and end customer delivery.
Focus on Your Competitive Advantage
Re-invest the time and resources previously spent on traditional expenses like IT, warehouse procurement, or data normalization into your market differentiation, and focus on expanding product offerings or increasing customer stickiness. Use the data centralized and normalized in the cloud supply chain integrations hub to optimize costs, improve forecasting accuracy, and run real-time modeling scenarios.
