Digitalized – Connected – Integrated – Smart – Automated: Supply Chains 4.0

Which strategies are best to tackle supply chain challenges caused by various global imbalances and amplified by measures meant to tackle the pandemic? Are supply chains a part of the problem or a part of the solution? How can digitalisation  and new technologies in general help to guarantee for all supplies to be on-time?

No doubt: Intelligent value chains create major values in the 4.0 world. Technological trends like AI, IoT, AR, 3D printing or Blockchain just started to re-shape supply chain strategies in many ways. Now is the right point in time to accelerate the transformation. The convergence of physical and digital processes enabled by IoT and AI creates a transformation from linear supply chains to connected, intelligent, scalable, adaptable and fast Digital Supply Networks (DSNs), the latter being more efficient and profitable. Blockchain technology has a lot of potential to foster trust and transparency in complex and partly automated business relationships. New and lean 4.0 manufacturing technologies will lead to more de-centralisation and regionalisation of logistics. To make this transformation a success physical data and relationships need to be mirrored in a Digital Twin of the supply chains.

The Pandemic Fostered the Global Approach for a Digital Supply Chain

  • Technological progress will never be as slow as today
  • How to set the rules for future logistics today
  • We need to maintain the ambitious digital solutions carriers and traders have advanced with during the Covid crisis.
  • A logistics chain is a weak as its weakest link: Getting developing and least developed countries on board.
  • In times of historically high freight rates we do not need a blame game, but solutions: Collaboration among all stakeholders along the global supply chain is key
