Enhancing Supply Chain Efficiency Using Mendix

The United Nations reports that about one-third of global food production is wasted annually, contributing approximately 4.4 billion tonnes of CO2 equivalent to the planet yearly. This staggering loss is attributed, in part, to inadequate cold chain logistics that lead to the wastage of almost half of the temperature-sensitive foods every year in industries such as life sciences.

Failing to maintain optimal conditions results in waste and risks human lives

Organizations are now turning to applications built on the Mendix low-code platform to help them maintain effective cold chains and supply chains. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of low-code development and how implementing a cold chain system with Mendix on AWS can revolutionize supply chain management.

Efficient cold chain systems demand collaboration among stakeholders and require substantial in-house expertise

Modern technologies, such as the Internet of Things, Cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, have become crucial in addressing the challenges of managing complex integrations in cold chain logistics. Low-code development platforms enable organizations to build custom applications to manage their supply chains better, reduce waste and costs, and outpace their competitors.

Low-code platforms like Mendix simplify the development process, enabling developers to create applications much faster

By using out-of-the-box templates, building blocks, connectors, and prebuilt integration modelers, developers can quickly build applications that previously took months to create. Low-code solutions also allow IT teams to focus on delivering business outcomes rather than spending time on coding or building integrations.

The strategic partnership between Mendix and Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides seamless integration of the Mendix low-code platform with AWS services. Organizations can now develop cloud-native intelligent applications on Mendix, powered by AWS services like IoT, AI, ML, and Analytics, to bring their solutions to market faster than ever before.

Mendix has already proven its effectiveness in real-world applications

AntTail, a company offering pharmaceutical cold chain transparency, utilizes IoT sensors and an app built on the Mendix platform to monitor medicine storage temperatures continuously. This solution has a 98% success rate in identifying incorrect storage temperatures and notifying patients to adjust their storage conditions accordingly. 

Farm Trans, a European logistics service provider specializing in bulk and temperature-controlled food products, used the Mendix platform to build its Logistics Management System. This application streamlines logistics processes and connects suppliers, partners, and customers, enabling Farm Trans to serve its partners more efficiently and customer-friendly way.

Mendix enables organizations across industries to improve operational effectiveness, enhance customer experience, and reduce costs

With over 200 AWS services, Mendix provides a comprehensive low-code enterprise platform for rapid cross-domain application development. This ensures a seamless digital transformation process from strategy to planning to design to execution. Mendix allows organizations to incorporate more value chain elements into their digital infrastructure by extending reach into the supply chain and consumer engagement.
