Tight supply chain integration is the lifeblood of our economy. When unforeseen events bring supply chains to a standstill, the economic implications can be severe, as was witnessed during the pandemic. At the same time, global shipments of goods and commodities are generating a massive amount of greenhouse gas emissions, and it is precisely those emissions that we are trying to reduce in the fight against climate change.
What can the industry do to ensure that materials continue to flow and supply chains continue to operate smoothly in the future, even in the face of crisis? How can companies keep their increasingly complex supply chains stable over the long term, while also meeting their sustainability targets? Our answer: with precise planning and a faster response when disruption occurs – ideally before it even happens.
