Is your supply chain ready for what comes next?

That’s a question all supply chain leaders should be asking. One thing we know for sure is that the pandemic has unleashed an unprecedented amount of investment in technology to help us realize our strategies and business plans. Afterall, technology is the backbone of the digital supply chain future. Technology is also crucial to mitigate and recover from the next disruption, whatever that may be.

Like last year’s virtual event, we will bring together industry leaders, academics and consultants who will share how they’re putting to work emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, the Internet of Things, Predictive Analytics, and Mobile and Piece Picking Robots to drive their supply chains into the digital future.
