Technology and its Impact on the Supply Chain and Logistics
Technology makes our world smaller, but it also creates increasingly complex global supply chains. Real-time connectivity and visibility enable supply chain professionals to work with partners anywhere, sharing insights with a supplier’s supplier or a customer’s customer. These digital networks enable rapid information transfer through a web, rather than a chain. This will lead to increasing expectation for transparency and visibility in every step of the process.
As business decisions influence other organizations at an even faster pace, supply chain managers must use this power to create positive influences, including fair labor practices and strong environmental standards. Now, we must work to educate young professionals to prepare them to lead the extraordinary supply networks of tomorrow.
