How to Modernize the Supply Chains We Depend on Most

  • Paper, textiles, industrial materials, food supply: When your product or commodity is one of the world’s most enduring, your supply chain may be the last thing to be touched by technology
  • As global trade becomes more interconnected and complex, and businesses and consumers alike expect 2-day shipping, the product and commodity supply chains we depend on most must utilize new technologies and partnership models to survive
  • Discuss how companies can integrate technologies such as ML, real-time collaboration and communication, and form new partnerships to build a more efficient, modern supply chain
