Future of Logistics and Supply Chain Management 

Key challenges and opportunities in logistics and supply chain management, in the context of wider global trends – impact on global corporations, and also on companies.  How the world is changing faster than you can hold a board meeting, and why you need more than one supply chain strategy – expect further uncertainty, shocks and market volatility.

Corporations will focus far more attention on the risk impact of natural disasters, political changes and other events on their supply chains.  Most large US companies are already rethinking their entire supply chain as a result – making more products closer to home, and why this will benefit Mexico economy. Additional pressures to shorten supply chains and diversify sources will come from shorter product cycle times. 

Why the internet is making customers more impatient – both retail and business to business.  Future impact of e-commerce on wholesale, retail and distribution.  Fusion of offline and online worlds, and rapid growth of alternatives to home delivery.  Expect rapid growth of same day delivery in some sectors. 

Impact of RFID technology on supply chain management – and challenges to use all the data generated to save costs and manage product flow.  Expect major investment in new transport hubs – combining air, sea, rail, road.  Opportunities for major cost savings with more efficient road haulage.  And in all these changes, expect growing pressures from investors, regulators and consumers to manage supply chains in a more sustainable way.
