A fascinating paradox has gripped the supply chain industry. Today’s supply chains have become more complex than ever, growing in size and scope to encompass more trading partners, more facilities and more customers, often spanning the globe. Yet to efficiently collaborate with those trading partners, run those facilities and serve those customers, simplicity is key. You need to be able to answer basic questions: where’s your inventory? What’s happening right now in your supply chain? Do your customers have what they need? Technology is the key to streamlining the supply chain, but as discussed at the KC SmartPort annual industry briefing, it’s not a matter of simply using technology, but truly understanding what it is and what it can do.
