New Trends in Logistics and Supply Chain
Given the uncertainty in business, with Brexit and changing customer behaviours – Logistics and supply chain are areas that organisations are looking at to improve and help reduce operating costs. Ed gave his view on this strategy.
There seems to be 6 major trends influencing the logistics industry in the future. Ed gave pointers on what strategic leaders need to think about with regard to these:
- A workforce that is technologically savvy
