The challenge many logistics organisations face is a range of disconnected systems, no overview of analytics and a siloed approach that leads to inconsistencies in data across inventory, supply, and demand. Add to this new Brexit laws for 2021 and without new technology-based supply chain solutions, starting a business or evolving to compete in today’s market wouldn’t just be cost-prohibitive; it would be a non-starter. As the world moves to on-demand supply requirements, machine learning, connective technology and algorithms to continually improve operations is the way to go. The flexibility demanded by retailers and brands is unprecedented leading to the creation of a new focus for the logistics network to optimise how goods move.
