Leveraging technology and innovation to enhance supply chain resilience in the face of growing online activities due to COVID-19
The supply chain and logistic sector have seen a massive disruption due to Covid-19. With social distancing and restrictions leading to increase demand for delivery services, huge pressure has been placed on the entire global, regional and local supply and logistics chain, consequently disrupting back end inventory and warehousing, including delivery and logistics operations for last mile in the region.
This has exposed technology and innovation gaps across the sector when it comes to automation and transformation and many supply chain and logistics companies, manufacturers’. retailers and businesses are realising the need to scale up and ensure that they have technology and innovation driven supply chain processes and systems to withstand this pressure and weather the pandemic while future-proofing their operations in this new normal.
As such, manufacturer and retailers, as well as all sectors with disrupted supply chain sources are turning to scaling up technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), smart automation, robotics, enterprise resource planning (ERP) amongst many others to ensure that they achieve operational efficiency, remain competitive and meet customer’s expectation for faster delivery and excellent customer service.
The Supply Chain and Logistics Transformation DigiConference will therefore bring together senior executives and decision makers from supply chain and logistics companies, retail chains, manufacturers, distributors and solution providers to discuss some of these challenges and how technology and innovation can play a key role in helping them transform their processes and future-proof the logistics and supply chain sector in a post COVID-19 pandemic.
