New Trends in Logistics and Supply Chain
Given the uncertainty in business, with Brexit and changing customer behaviours – Logistics and supply chain are areas that organisations are looking at to improve and help reduce operating costs. Ed gave his view on this strategy.
There seems to be 6 major trends influencing the logistics industry in the future. Ed gave pointers on what strategic leaders need to think about with regard to these:
- A workforce that is technologically savvy
- How consumers behave / trends in spending
- Government objectives
In our previous podcasts we’ve talked about productivity, innovation and strategy, Ed gave his thoughts on what Aston and partners like the SCA are doing to help leaders:
- Gain clarity to deliver strategic objectives
- Generate practical solutions to create a competitive advantage through logistics and supply chain
- Deepen their knowledge
