Harnessing digital information for faster finishes

As a company that prides itself in being at the forefront of innovation, Puma’s speed-to-market was being hindered by slow container release updates. Implementing TradeLens helped them leverage the power of data to receive port notifications in real time and get their processes back up to speed.
