Integrated Supply Chain Conference – September 2017

Driving Supply Chain agility and improving risk management while reducing costs during times of economic volatility within Turkey. Today’s supply chains continue to grow increasingly complex as technology and globalisation presume their onwards march. However despite all of these challenges, until recently the perceived wisdom was that a lean supply chain was the most effective form of supply, irrespective of the specifics of a particular supply chain. While policies enabled by globalisation may save labour costs, it can leave the business exposed to other risks to which they lack the flexibility to respond.

4th Annual Innovations in Supply Chain Finance – AMSTERDAM February 2017

Supply chain finance is an area of business which still holds great potential for return on investment, and is beneficial not only to the banks which supply the products, but the buyers and suppliers that make use of them. Investment in technology projects can run to millions of Euros, and there is always the danger that these projects will run over time and budget. The technology and systems required to make these transactions possible are constantly shifting, and staying up-to-date with the advances is vital to remaining completive in a market in which prices are being driven down by the introduction of non-bank entities. With these entities offering both funding and platforms, it is vital for banks to work to remain competitive, either through development of their own platforms, or by making well-informed choices about with bank agnostic platforms to make use of.

Robot Trucks or Autonomous Vehicles Will Revolutionize the Supply Chain

Most supply chain professionals do not completely understand the disruption and upgrades that autonomous vehicles, specifically what I call robot trucks, will create. Most cannot get past the pitfalls and possible barriers to robot trucks. I define robot trucks with a much broader perspective. I include trucks of all sizes and even internal plant material handling equipment like fork-lifts and automatic guided vehicles (AVGs). The biggest leap is that robot trucks will learn! Many doubters just cannot get past this. Although not complete artificial intelligence (AI), robot trucks will adapt on their own, to conditions and circumstances, and build an open memory of what to do.
