SMART SUPPLY CHAIN & PROCUREMENT
If the global crisis has taught us one thing, it’s just how critical supply chain management is.
In the aftermath of the pandemic let’s shine light on the once invisible divisions that are gaining their served appreciation.
Procurement and supply chain functions take a bigger role on a broader and deeper set of strategic responsibilities than ever before. They go from the back office to making a direct impact to customer experience and bring value beyond the cost savings and efficient transportation.
