With continued population growth and changing consumer behaviors, more goods need to be moved and traditional supply chains are feeling the increased pressure. How can enabling technologies and underlying supply chain data help key stakeholders create a more efficient, transparent, and integrated network? We'll discuss:

  • Current state of goods transportation and key bottlenecks.
  • Striking the right balance between automation, robotics, and a human workforce.
  • Asset sharing to address untapped consumer demand.
  • The role of data and digitization in keeping consumers happy and the supply chain moving smoothly.

Participants will learn how various factors could impact them as they chart their transportation strategy for the future.
