THE 4 PILLARS OF THE SUPPLY CHAIN OF THE FUTURE
Posted by Sophie Pagalday in Supply Chain Brain
We’re living in a truly unique time for supply chain. At the risk of sounding dramatic, there are convergences happening right now in our industry changing how businesses need to think about their warehouse management systems, operations, customers, and fulfilment.
Think about it:
Customers seek brands that provide personal experiences, yet…
They also want the all of conveniences online shopping provides, meanwhile…
Businesses face a shrinking workforce to deliver on all these customer expectations while…
They look for ways to increase throughout and lower cost per unit in their supply chain and foster repeat business.
All these changes in a few short years. How can a business wrap their heads around so much complexity and change?
In a recent conversation with SupplyChainBrain, Körber Supply Chain CTO Sean Elliott shares his vision of the four pillars of the future for a supply chain. He breaks down why today’s challenges shape the future of supply chain and how your warehouse management system, including hardware, software, and people, needs to bridge between these challenges, happy customers, and healthy business.
Your supply chain grows more complex by the day – more products, more distribution channels, more customer expectations, more competition. And more pressure.
Technology can help. But without a sound strategy, simply adding technology also adds its own complexity.
That’s why you need a supply chain solution provider with depth and vision. With not just one product, but a range of proven solutions to fit your size, business strategy, and appetite for growth… Capable of delivering not just software, but automation, voice, robotics, materials handling, plus the expertise to tie it all together.
