Supply Chain Shaman

The Supply Chain Insights Global Summit is over, but we hope the energy to define Supply Chain 2030 is just beginning. As companies prepare for Supply Chain 2030, we think that it is time to rethink the basics. 2030 is 14 years in the future. Seven Predictions for Supply Chain 2030.

By 2030 that number will have grown exponentially and the volume of jobs available will likely grow equally as much.

There were many different stories that were shared on their successes in all industries, and the theme of the conference always came back to where supply chain will be in 2030.
