Logistics and transportation executives are accustomed to dealing with rapid swings in demand from consumers, shifts in resource availability, and storms that threaten to upend the global supply chain.
But now the stakes have been raised, and the world is watching. According to recent research from Oxford Economics, logistics executives should take the following actions to help address current challenges and join the ranks of supply chain leaders:
- Establish a consistent data flow from logistics and transportation
- Leverage new technologies (machine learning, AI, IoT) for visibility across the end-to-end supply chain
- Enact sustainability practices throughout the delivery process
