Insight

From the chain to the net

Environmental and sustainability aspects in particular, but also demographic change or trends such as personalised products present new challenges in supply chain management. At the same time, digitalisation opens up new opportunities.

Self-driving vehicles, raw pipeline systems covering the last mile, automated loading and unloading in ports and postal distribution centres, self-learning algorithms and sensors that autonomously control spare parts procurement in the smart factory, constant monitoring and flexible adaptation of delivery routes or alternative drives - the individual competences in these areas and the ability to react flexibly will play an essential role in a company's competitiveness in the future.

What's more, these competences and skills make it possible to create and establish real unique selling points with new services and business models.
The decisive entrepreneurial challenge lies in the transformation of the silo structure of today's supply chains - characterised by fixed delivery schedules, analogue communication channels, lack of visibility of free capacities, limited scaling options and high capital commitment - to flexible network structures of a digital and smart supply chain, which are defined by six target characteristics.
