Star Flow Supply Chain

Take control of any chain you like


Real-time inventory management and faster delivery times through chain collaboration

Star Flow Supply Chain offers shippers, manufacturers, trade companies, retailers and 4PLs the tools to control and manage the logistics of any commercial supply chain they choose. Both the end client and all other links involved (warehouses, service organisations, carriers, logistic service providers, etc.) are connected simply and easily via internet. This allows each party to act with optimum effectiveness, both independently and in interaction with the others. Each chain participant will have their own control tower that provides real-time insight and offers the possibility of making adjustments at exactly the right moment, no matter when that is. From production to stock management to delivery: each step in the logistical process will flow seamlessly into the next. Both you and your end client will be able to enjoy a fully transparent chain and be able to achieve maximum results.

How does the integrated warehouse app crossdock++ work?

Star Flow features an integrated warehouse module and corresponding app, so that you know exactly what's in stock at each warehouse location in the chain. What's more, bottlenecks will be pro-actively reported by the relevant party in the chain, allowing you to take the appropriate response in time.

In project-based logistical operations, you can also use the warehouse module to set up warehouses anywhere in the world, quickly and easily. The manager of your warehouse or pop-up depot will have effective centralised oversight. He or she can download and install the warehouse app on their smartphone, after which they are immediately ready to scan shipments, pick and pack, take photos and submit non-conformance reports (NCRs). This allows you to see the current stock at each location.

How can you manage your chain according to the established guidelines?

You want to manage your chain in keeping with the logistical scenarios defined in advance. Other parties in your chain can then structure these scenarios according to the established administrative and logistical steps in order to manage the process as efficiently as possible. The workflow module reports any deviations or bottlenecks and submits pro-active notifications to the relevant internal departments and parties in the logistical chain.
