A Critical Eye on Supply Chains at the End of 2013

Kirsty Adams writes an article for SHD Logistics about why a rocky road still lies ahead for supply chains, but big data and 3D printing will help to smooth out the transition. Right now, online retailing is up, but so are the costs of doing business in places like China and India. End-to-end processes have become a big deal, superseding an “obsession with factories.” The importance of big data has become better recognized, but how to best utilize it remains uncertain to many supply chains. The same may be said of 3D printing, whose potential to radically alter supply chain is obvious, but the technology has not quite reached maturity yet. It is predicted that 2014 shall be a year of exciting reformation in supply chains, more so than in 2013.
