Guy Gueirard, head of industrial and logistics, EMEA, said: “With the rise in e-commerce and the ongoing changes in consumer behaviour businesses are finding that today’s supply chain is very different to that of a pre-digital age – they need to adapt and evolve, and generally be much more flexible.

“[Smart] understands our customers’ challenges, as well as the solutions and technologies that the market can offer. This will enable us to join up our supply chain expertise with the ultimate property solutions to give our clients better advice on how they can maximise efficiencies across their supply chain.”
