Technology

One of the distinguishing characteristics of STI’s approach to the supply chain is a dedication to using cutting-edge technology to improve its processes. We are an asset-based company, meaning that we own the resources we use. We are also known for the custom solutions that we develop and crafting unique procedures for even the most demanding or unusual supply chain needs. We carry these values to the technology we use as well.

The application technology that tie our family of technologies together is not an off-the-shelf package. STI keeps an exclusive staff of IT professionals onsite and has constructed a proprietary system that is specifically designed to maximize service to our customers. It leverages serialized bar-coding technology, GPS communications, online portal access and mobile applications to provide tracking and management capabilities that no other can match.

Not only do we utilize our technology to ensure the efficiency of our own operations, but we extend the power of our technology to our customers, giving them visibility that in turn improves their business. Working with STI gives you access to technologies that are tailored to fit our industry and yours.
