1) Technology being a main strategic driverAs mentioned above, supply chains are evolving and adapting to consumer demand and technological advances. Smarter technologies are being created to process large volumes of data and organize multiple sources of data.
2) Supply chains that provide transparency and flexibilityMore supply chains will determine how to balance flexibility, reduce their environmental impact and provide their clients’ complete visibility.
3) Big success will come from small improvementsEveryone knows improving all components of the supply chain are crucial for growth and success. However, changes in the supply chain by focusing more on certain aspects, such as predictive route planning and distribution space allocation software, will become more common in supply chains.
4) Quicker implementation of new proceduresImprovements in technologies have assisted in enhancing supply chains and implementing new methods quickly. Also, with the improvement in technologies, companies are able to link existing systems. This will save from purchasing new systems and can solve any issues with existing systems already in place.
These are only some of the changes that are expected to happen to future supply chains, with even more transformations to come in 2017.
