In Conversation: Complexity in the Supply Chain

Managing your supply chain intelligently is imperative yet difficult. In fact, 95% of supply chain professionals face problems with external collaboration. From slow responses to incomplete order fulfilment, your supply chain could be disrupted by things that can be resolved with technology.

With growing complexity, you need to keep track of all of your suppliers and identify who is performing and who isn’t. But how can technology help you to achieve this?

Join this panel to learn how technology fits in, and how it can be utilised to understand, analyse and improve supplier performance and communications within logistics.

Supply Chain Resilience: Welcome to the Shortage Economy

When the world is facing a shortage of containers and space, how can you ensure that you still meet consumer demand, keep costs low and get goods to where they need to be on time?

Technology and strategies work hand in hand to ensure that internal and external stakeholder communication connects one end of the supply chain to the other, giving you full visibility. This visibility can be utilised to minimise disruption, lower costs and make sure that your goods get from A to B efficiently.

This session will provide you with smart strategies that can be adopted to help through:

  • Forecasting
  • Cash management
  • Enabling better flow of information

Best-In-Class: Using Data to Optimise Performance

At the heart of visibility and informed decision making is data. With data, you can see that your supply chain is performing how it should be, identify problems quickly and react to disruption efficiently. To access end-to-end visibility and advanced data capabilities, you first need to establish how you can surface usable data that is reliable, trustworthy and relevant.

This Navigate session will establish how you can uncover accurate and usable data. For example, advanced tools such as project44 are integrated into the Zencargo platform to offer real-time road transportation data, enhancing decision making and visibility.

But how can you be more sustainable when you don’t have the data to highlight carbon emissions?

Zencargo has integrated technology into our platform to offer visibility over carbon emissions, allowing customers to make better, more sustainable choices, without impacting business goals.

Join this panel to hear how integrating CO2 data into logistics planning can help deliver a carbon-neutral supply chain.

Building for a Smarter Supply Chain

The pandemic has acted as a catalyst for change, and old, outdated technologies are no longer efficient, effective or reliable. Supply chains need a technology infrastructure that can handle growing numbers of stakeholders, keep up with demand and change, and produce clarity from confusion.

This session will uncover the technologies needed to be more efficient from a logistics perspective.
