Space-based data company Spire Global has announced a new strategic maritime data partnership with Gravity Supply Chain, a cloud-based supply chain management platform, expanding a relationship initially established between the firms in 2017.
“We’re proud to partner with Gravity Supply Chain to help businesses around the world maintain a secure, robust, and efficient supply chain in face of significant complexities,” said Mark Dembitz, APAC Sales Director of Spire Maritime Solutions.
“This past year has reinforced that major disruptions to trade can cause ripple effects across the supply chain, which makes integrated and smart logistics solutions such as real-time end-to-end shipment visibility critical to business success.”
Gravity Supply Chain has built a predictive platform analysing an organisation’s immediate supply chain and the multiple tiers that support it, including potential disruptors like weather, labour strikes, or the impact of natural disasters. Using satellite-based data from Spire’s maritime portfolio, users will also be able to monitor their fleet and shipment location around the globe.
“Modern businesses rely on having current, precise, and reliable data to make informed decisions. Our continued partnership with Spire lets us confidently deliver the insights customers need to manage their supply chains efficiently and cost-effectively,” said Graham Parker, Gravity Supply Chain CEO.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Spire to provide innovative smart logistics solutions to users across the world.”
