It’s been a highly challenging and disruptive year as the supply chain sector has been faced with increased number of challenges, including demand volatility, transportation obstacles and supplier shortages, and more.

As a result, many companies around Australia currently struggle to ensure a smooth supply chain journey whilst operating in a highly disruptive and unpredictable environment.

Akolade’s Supply Chain Planning & Logistics Summit will provide attendees with practical tools and frameworks to get their supply chains back on track, including how to navigate the ongoing shipping backlog and transportation challenges, plan and forecast in times of high demand volatility and manage supplier and customer relations. Attendees will also get the latest information on how automation and technology can assist in driving supply chain efficiency.
