How CALISTA Supply Chain Orchestration Platform Can Help Your Business

More supply chains are extending their geographical scope and becoming global. CALISTA supply chain orchestration platform can play a key role in helping trade participants meet these and other new challenges.

In 2015, McKinsey research reported that by 2020, the majority (80 percent) of goods will be manufactured in locations other than where they are consumed. Savvy consumers know this, but expect the same high-quality service whether or not the goods or its components were sourced from overseas.


As a business owner, international trade participation can be complex. It requires better technology, processes, skills and ways of dealing with industry partners located in different time zones. Accurate, real-time data is critical for executives, supply chain partners and workers to make better decisions and deliver goods to the right location at the right time. Consumers are also more demanding than ever. Global supply chains must adapt to provide more options, faster lead times, better quality products and services, and better customer engagement.


Orchestrating supply chain activities can be challenging.  Communication delays, missing information and transmission failures are disruptive and can be catastrophic to the bottom line. Customers today have more options than ever and would gladly switch to another provider if they fail to get what they want, whether it’s faster delivery, cheaper shipping, or a better product.

However, many organizations rely on existing systems to manage global trade, and are slow to adopt better technologies and processes that consolidate data in one place and enable faster and more efficient communication between participants. Effective supply chain orchestration is driven by advanced technologies that enable complete visibility, improved security and faster collaboration among geographically separated teams.


It’s a tall order to develop a platform that manages all global supply chain transactions and partners in one place. The task is too expensive and difficult to execute for many businesses. CALISTA takes the pain out of global supply chain orchestration by bringing together key physical and non-physical, including financial and regulatory, logistics activities on a digital ecosystem that serves the community of logistics stakeholders.

CALISTATM is a neutral, interoperable supply chain platform that enables the orchestration of the physical logistics, regulatory and financial requirements of the trade ecosystem, integrating multiple stakeholders like carriers, shippers, logistics service providers, brokers, banks, and relevant government agencies on a single platform.

The platform features enhanced security of trade documents through Open Trade Blockchain that improves transparency and trust between stakeholders.
