The biggest supply chain challenges facing the industry

With today’s supply chain complexity, changing course when demand shifts or supply is disrupted requires a lot of coordination. Time is of the essence, but the gap between planning and execution slows you down as reality inevitably deviates from plan.

When unexpected changes occur, teams struggle to pinpoint where in the supply chain problems are occurring, identify solutions and respond quickly. And the resulting costs are familiar: lagging service levels, unforeseen charges, unhappy customers. Particularly with perishable food and beverages, mistakes and delays can lead to millions in waste a year.

The problem is, supply chains aren’t equipped to make use of the overwhelming amount of data needed to efficiently prioritize issues, align with partners, decide on the response and ultimately take action. You’re often making do with only an incomplete and outdated understanding of demand and supply. It’s either move forward with only part of the picture, or risk moving too slowly.
