Today Osi Tagger, CEO at Unilog, joins me to chat all about the company: what they do; the importance of creating achievable solutions; embracing a culture of diversity; and how a focus on logistic capabilities can achieve a competitive advantage.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
[08.01] An overview of Unilog – what they do, their 5PL structure and how they help their customers – and why they can’t be put into a box.
“We are a multi enterprise supply chain business network.”
[12.07] A closer look at Unilog’s Supply Chain as a Service offering and how it can facilitate global fulfilment for customers, to help them scale quickly and easily and meet their SLA’s.
“If you ask our clients, ‘where is your warehouse?’ they have no idea – they don’t care, because that’s not what they’re buying. In order to grow their business, they want to deliver their promise to their market and we support them – this is global fulfilment for us. This is why they buy supply chain as a service.”

“Visibility for the sake of visibility is just another pile of data. What are you going to do with that? That’s what we solve in many ways.”
