Capacity challenges and disruptive models are driving the need for change in logistics and operations
The optimization and synchronization of cross-modal logistics with business operations is now a corporate fundamental. Most executives today recognize the need to change, yet still struggle to synchronize siloed procurement, manufacturing, logistics and fulfillment operations to anticipate demand and effectively meet customer requirements.
The global pandemic has pushed up the timetable for digitalization, putting traditional companies under increasing pressure to survive in the global market. This is a wake-up call for carriers to design new and improved processes and think creatively about the future. As customers demand a more transparent service that is faster and cheaper, carriers are developing the tools to process massive amounts of data in real-time. The keyword for success in this scenario is flexibility.
