The supply chain and logistics sector is undergoing a rapid transformation as a result of the development of new technologies and business models.
Inefficiencies, business fragmentation, low skill levels and out-dated technologies have combined to make the supply chain industry vulnerable to disruption from new market entrants. However, by focusing on value generation, smart technologies and intellectual capital as well as using ‘clean’ fuels, the industry has the potential to throw off many of its negative perceptions. To reach this goal there will need to be a transformation of established operating models and working practices. For all companies involved in the supply chain, there can be no more ‘business as usual’.
