Answer: The Supply Chain. Look around you... Everything you can see right now was at one point in the supply chain and almost certainly on a trailer or container.

The keyboard, mouse and monitors on your desk, the desk itself, the picture frames on the wall, the clothing on your body, and the cell phone in your hand. All of it! The Supply Chain touches almost everything around you. So have you ever been to your favorite retailer and been faced with an empty shelf?We have... and the reason could be your item is on a trailer somewhere on a yard, that no one can find. When manufacturing plants and distribution centers use Yardview they are able to track and see every trailer on the yard along with its contents. This leads to happier customers for that retailer because the shelf has your item on it, instead of in the belly of dark trailer, waiting to be found.
