Executive Editor and supply chain industry analyst Bob Ferrari recently had the opportunity to participate in a podcast discussion regarding futures in logistics networks.
Within our Ferrari Consulting and Research Group predictions for the current year was a belief that major parcel transportation and customer logistics networks would step-up their competition for the mindshare and broader influence of larger numbers of online customers or E-commerce platform providers. That indeed continues to unfold, with literally billions being invested in increased logistics and customer fulfillment capabilities on a global-wide basis.
In the three to five-year window, we stated our belief that multi-industry and global supply chains will witness the creation of Network of Networks as business strategies and advanced technology align to future levels of capability.
In a recorded two-episode podcast, Supply Chain Matters Executive Editor Bob Ferrari, and Guy Courtin, Vice President, Industry and Solution Strategy, Infor Retail, exchange thoughts on the topic.
In the Episode One podcast, we exchanged thoughts and perspectives on what is meant by logistics network of networks.
In this Episode Two podcast,we both discuss: The forces behind supply chain transformation.
