Managing Supply Chain Risks: Thriving in an Era of Disruption

Economist Impact Webinar

To keep pace with customer expectations and manage trade uncertainty, many companies and industries are under immense pressure to modernise their supply chains. Technology is one of the main factors making supply chains smarter and more resilient, with new tools and techniques helping factories, warehouses, distribution centres and delivery systems adapt to uncertainty and protect against global disruptions. As supply chains begin to incorporate digital and autonomous links that require no human intervention, the processes, interdependencies, priorities and gaps involved are becoming more visible. That greater visibility can allow businesses to anticipate supply-chain risks and mitigate the operational and financial disruptions they entail.
