About Building the Warehouse of the Future DigiBoardroom
As the world is adapting to the new normal of life under pandemic, the supply chain industry becomes of utmost importance to the economic recovery, business continuity, and most critically, to ensuring supply of people’s basic needs. However, the pandemic has shaken supply globally, with network disruptions, extreme demand and price fluctuations, placing major pressure on the industry to fulfill this challenging role and meet market requirements.
To overcome this, companies are collaborating with technology experts to utilise innovative digital solutions that will enable them to improve their adaptability and agility through enhancing stock accuracy and visibility, ensuring connection of the full supply chain network, and efficiently managing multiple warehouses and fulfillment centers.
This DigiBoardroom will host senior supply chain industry and technology experts to discuss current challenges and how digital strategies and technologies can assist supply chain companies in building resilience, optimise operations and assets, and not only survive the pandemic, but gain a competitive edge, increase their market share, and emerge stronger once the pandemic is over.
