Managing a Supply Chain in 2018 is a complex affair. Tenuous logistics chains stretch out overseas in every direction.
These chains deliver goods via multiple carriers, across multiple borders, and past multiple obstacles – with missed commitments, regulations and criminal activity being the main culprits.
Can technology solve any of these problems and help smooth out a supply chain? Can it ‘disrupt’ logistics as we know it today and eliminate entire segments of the global transport industry?
And who will it affect more? The small carriers and 3PLs, the shippers, or the major carriers?
Within the logistics industry, technology is playing an even-expanding role in managing a supply chain.
And, as business cycles get faster and shorter, and customers become even more demanding, the complexity of managing a supply chain, and the need for cutting edge technology to assist, will only increase.
