Q+A: How LITTLE THINGS often create client magic for your VIP customers and clients. Example from supply chains and logistics. Futurist Keynote speaker VIDEO

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Q+A after Futurist Keynote.

Little things usually cost nothing and build trust, win market share, deliver value. This is true in logistics and supply chain management, but also in manufacturing and in retail as well as in all service industries such as hospitality and leisure.

A simple zero cost example is rapid text communication in a crisis causing disruption. Let your clients know exactly what is happening. Your aim is to maintain TRUST, help your clients sleep at night knowing that you are always sorting out issues day by day.

Texts cost nothing but often mean a huge amount to an anxious executive. It's the same with BIG DATA. The greatest value to companies is usually LITTLE DATA: 0.001% of all the data you have may be worth more than all the rest...

Q+A Keys to Agile Leadership. Why timing is EVERYTHING in a crisis, backup plans, contingencies, alternatives, dynamic strategy. Lessons on Agility and Agile Leadership from recent disruptive events. Logistics and Risk Management Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Questions and Answers with logistics and supply chain keynote speaker Patrick Dixon at Seminarium Chile.

First lesson is to act very fast in a crisis - we often need to respond in very agile ways, leadership always thinking ahead to manage risk with multiple contingencies and alternative strategies. The world is changing faster than you can change logistics and supply chain plans.

Market disruptions, cancelled trade agreements, sanctions and so on. Lessons from other sectors in response to market crisis and disruptions. Communication is vital for manufacturers, wholesalers, retail industry. Keep your clients / suppliers constantly informed. Let them hear what is happening from you directly, rather than from other sources. Logistics and supply chain management is about more than delivery, it's about TRUST. Without trust you have nothing to sell.

Carbon Zero Manufacturing: how global companies will race ahead of governments to deliver net zero carbon products for a world beyond COVID. Factory strategies for Net Zero Emissions. Future of Manufacturing Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Get ready for Net Zero Manufacturing 5.0 which will run faster and stronger than Manufacturing 4.0 ever did. Expect 100,000 manufacturing innovations to reduce energy consumption, reduce embodied carbon in manufacturers products, and drive sales by proving better environmental standards.  

These changes in manufacturing will happen much faster than government regulations, just like we saw in other sectors such as food safety, food labelling, animal welfare in farming and food traceability. Expect massive pressures up and down supply chains from larger manufacturers who will be required to report on the carbon emissions per product manufactured.

Are robots really about to take over the world? Why sales of robots have grown slowly. Future of AI / Artificial intelligence. Impact of robots and automation on jobs / unemployment and economic growth - robotics and AI keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Despite all the talk of robots taking over most menial jobs and putting tens of millions out of work, the growth of robots in factories has been slow – up from 92,000 to a mere 387,000 a year from 2000 to 2017. A third of that increase was in 2017. Compare this to growth of smartphones, for instance, and the pace is still snail-like. Sales of such robots are likely to increase by around 10-15% a year – mostly confined to the auto industry, which owns most robots in America. Robots will become cheaper and more intelligent, but smaller models will still cost over $20,000 each in 2020.

Expect rapid growth in military robots – with tens of thousands of drones owned by the Pentagon alone, raising the prospect of swarms of small, semi-autonomous flying robots being thrown into the air above a major battle zone. “Suicide drones” will soon be available on the open market, able to fly 80 miles an hour, to detonate explosives at any target 40 miles away.

Q+A: Future Logistics and Supply Chains - outsource or in-house logistics and supply chain teams? Look for growth in Virtual Logistics operations combining agility and scale with control and visibility - Future of Logistics Keynote Speaker VIDEO

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Questions and Answers on future of logistics and supply chains at Seminarium event in Santiago - answered by Futurist keynote speaker Patrick Dixon. Many large companies are taking back control of their own logistics and supply chains - with their own delivery systems, freight organisations, shipping arrangements, road haul and so on. This is in response to major uncertainties and disruptions. So what of the future? What will this mean for larger supply chain companies such as DHL, Fedex, UPS and so on? Watch out for growth of so-called virtual supply chain companies, where the manufacturer and supply chain company are 100% connected in real time, giving better visibility, better risk management, more agile response to disruptive events, while still maximising the economies of scale and efficiency of global transport infrastructure.

Agile Manufacturing 5.0 - why Manufacturing 4.0 not enough as shown by multiple recent disruptive events. Agility and Innovation are survival issues. Future of Manufacturing Keynote

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Industry 4.0, or Manufacturing 4.0 is NOT enough.  As we have seen, you can create a hyperconnected world of factories in future.

But without a human touch, all we have done is hyper-automated a very rigid production system - creating major new manufacturing risks.

Future manufacturing is also about being agile, innovative, creative, dynamic, adjusting manufacturing strategy rapidly in response to changing market conditions, multiple supply chain disruption and other issues.

Future of Global Trade, Logistics and Supply Chain Management- agility and risk. Scandal of empty containers and boom in regional trade v global. Reducing supply chain risks and disruptions from more global events like the COVID pandemic - keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Manufacturing 4.0 is not enough, nor the hyper-connected world of Manufacturing 5.0. We need agility, rapid innovation and dynamic responses to major disruptions in supply chains and global chaos. That means having contingencies, back up plans, alternatives.

Yet in many ways, despite recent shocks, the fundamentals of successful logistics and supply chain management are still changing relatively slowly. 

For example, before COVID, moving a container 150km by lorry from Birmingham to Southampton cost the same as moving the same container 10,000km by sea from Southampton to Beijing. It is cheaper to transport melons from Istanbul to Naples than to drive melons from a village up in the Italian mountains, to the same market.  This overwhelmingly huge difference in sea freight costs compared to roads will be one of the single greatest drivers of future global trade, over the next 30-50 years, despite increased energy costs. It is the primary reason why global trade has grown at twice the rate of global production over the last 30 years...

Future of Manufacturing 5.0 means being hyperconnected, sustainable factories and supply chains + human beings. But more than that, Manufacturing 5.0 is all about dynamic strategy with multiple contingencies, backup, reducing risk.Futurist Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Future of Manufacturing 5.0 - what comes after Future of Manufacturing 4.0?

Why we need to go beyond automation, internet of things, big data, predictive analytics and artificial intelligence. You can use hundreds of robots, place all your data in the Cloud and still miss many of the most important things in manufacturing.

Along comes a big shock like COVID and no amount of Industry 4.0 will save your company without such as Agility, creativity, innovation, forecasting and a big dose of common sense. Nearshowing, restoring, reducing supply chain risks and how small niche manufacturers also need to embrace digital tech to become part of much larger virtual enterprises.

Q+A: Future costs of freight? When will container shipping costs fall to normal? Reasons for supply chain crisis. Predictions for future cost of shipping. Future of Logistics and Supply Chains Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Q+A at Seminarium Chile on future of logistics and supply chain management - by keynote speaker Patrick Dixon.

"I have shipping costs risen from - say - $800 per container to over $9000 for the same journey and what next? (July 2022). In my Futurist book The Future of Almost Everything, I predicted that Central Banks would tend to encourage inflation rather than risk deflation (whatever they say publicly). And that prices for commodities etc would fluctuate widely. And both turned out to be correct....In no other market is a 10 fold increase in costs sustainable for long without massive investment as people look to make money from shortages and crisis, which will increase capacity. And then of course the market is likely to overshoot with overcapacity for a while."...

Q+A How to tackle shortage of truck drivers. Why truck driver crisis really matters and how too solve it. Road freight trends. Seminarium: Logistics Supply Chain Keynote Speaker - VIDEO

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain Keynotes

Q+A to Patrick Dixon, Keynote Speaker on Logistics and Supply Chain risks - about severe shortages of truck drivers in many nations. Why is this and how to tackle truck driver shortages. Impact on many sectors ranging from manufacturing to retail.

In each nation the reasons for shortages of truck drivers are different.

Like most major trends in logistics and supply chain management, the issue has been obvious for a very long time. For example, in nations like UK, Germany and Chile, the average age of truck drivers has been around 50 years or older. Young people have not been attracted into road freight because of multiple factors which need addressing urgently....
