Rethink Your Supply Chain for 2014

Carolyn Gruske writes a comprehensive article on how the various facets of supply chain stand poised to change in the new year. Even better, she takes advice from several industry leaders to support her ideas. You should begin by reviewing your business plan, checking to see if what made sense a quarter ago still makes sense now. Then use key performance indicators (KPIs) to prove your point one way or the other. Gruske goes on to discuss numerous other topics, including inventory control, technology, fleet management, modes and packaging, collaboration, forging new relationships, omni-channel retailing, customer understanding, warehouse workings, processes, and the perils of cost-cutting. With regard to technology, she says that investments in automation can be useful because it reduces labor and shipping errors.
