Dec 3, 2019 · 4 min read

Morpheus.Network is currently running various pilots with organizations around the world. Our goal is to showcase our platform’s versatility and adaptable nature by working in close partnership with a range of global companies. Together we evaluate their current challenges and pain points and provide a customized solution to optimize their supply chain management procedures.

Company Description

Jiangsu APEC Lathe Manufacturing Co. Ltd. is one of the leading metal fabricating machinery manufacturers in China. The main products of the company include hydraulic ironworkers, mechanical ironworkers, ironworker accessories, punching machines, shearing machines, press brakes, CNC ironworkers, laser cutting machines and more. The company manages all aspects ranging from design to production and sales.

The organization has been in business for three decades and has successfully emerged as a world-class supplier of top-tier affordable machines with high-accuracy, durability, repeatability, and high-tech innovations.

The Challenge

APEC Lathe was facing significant challenges especially in terms of a rapidly changing business environment and increasing competitiveness. The company needed an innovative solution to manage its supply chain network, improve product traceability, and keep an aggressive operational standpoint.

Solution and Value Creation

Morpheus.Network assisted APEC in implementing a QR code system to ease the management of its supply chain functionalities. Features like digital scanning, geolocation tracking and monitoring have helped improve supply chain transparency for both the company and users, along with effective fraud protection. The addition of QR based scanning has also made the entire process much more convenient, faster and error-free. For instance, all the information about a particular product, including price, lot number etc., can be found by simply pointing their smartphone at the QR code; thereby eliminating the need for physical documentation.

“With an end goal to improve the coordination of our products and merchandise traveling through China, we have picked Morpheus.Network to furnish us with the transparency we need to trace our global shipments and establish a great relationship with our customers” — Lulu Liu, Head of Exportation

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to apply the Morpheus.Network platform to another real use case and have the opportunity to see APEC leverage the platform for improved supply chain efficiency and transparency.
