Video on the Moment of Truth in the Supply Chain!

This period, that is, this post-pandemic period, is considered a unique turning point in the history of supply chain management.

As pandemic-related restrictions are eased, if not eliminated, people and businesses will look to return to “normal.” For many, they will happily forget the disruptions the pandemic has caused and go back to their old ways.

Others will realize that they need to make significant improvements to create more robust, resilient and sustainable supply chains, leveraging all available skills and technology.

As such, this is the moment of truth for the supply chain. Watch our video and hear our take on what happened, what it means and what the future holds.

Additionally, we conducted surveys to understand where people are on this journey.
