Supply Chain Disruption and Future Strategies

As the global population increases from 7.6 billion to an estimated 9.8 billion by 2050, the volume of goods shipped is expected to quadruple. This increase in shipping volume will likely be driven by urbanization, an increase in disposable income, growth in internet penetration and ease of use by 2050 compared to today’s levels. With current fulfillment costs already high, rising shipping volumes will increase supply chain complexity and drive costs higher. The scope of disruption reaches far and wide - virtually every business with products and suppliers is impacted.

2020/21 have given investors, boards, and executive teams unprecedented concern for supply chain risk and volatility. The pandemic triggered new urgency in the need to strengthen supply chain performance in every aspect: visibility, reliability, cost-efficiency, resiliency, product safety & quality, sustainability, supplier risk & redundancy - to name just a few. How can companies be ready to meet these future challenges? Are current processes and systems adequate to address the complexity of global supply chains? Are they resilient and sustainable?

Join us at our SIM ELIT lunch, as we will share stories and learnings of supply chain challenges across industries. We will explore how companies can invest in the future with interconnected systems, supplier ecosystems, digitization, data science at scale, and functions and processes that enable them to operate with full supply chain visibility in real-time.
