Supply Chain & Logistics


“We care about every worker in our worldwide supply chain… What we will not do – and never have done – is stand still or turn a blind eye to problems in our supply chain. On this you have my word.

                                                                                                       — Tim Cook, CEO of Apple

The supply chain industry is undergoing a digital revolution. Globalization, eCommerce and demanding service-level expectations have surfaced the need to adopt better operational efficiencies throughout the value-chain.  Now more than ever, business stakeholders collectively need to collaborate and coordinate seamlessly to make these complex operations run efficiently. The Supply Chain and Logistics Council will explore innovative technologies and concepts that will improve automation, visibility and communication throughout the global trade ecosystem.
