What’s your best piece of advice to any supply chain professional? Think about the customer, they are at the end of the supply chain but everything we need to do should be focused on the proposition delivery for them

What will have the biggest impact on Supply Chains in 2020? Data analytics, driven by artificial intelligence. The techniques for optimising the end to end flow from manufacture to shelf are nothing new, but with the advances in data analytics we can get greater insight more frequently with real time optimisation enabling better and better decision making
