Roughly 7 of 10 supply chain professionals see cloud solutions as being a “game changer” or providing significant or reasonable impact on growth, according to a recent survey. And while many have yet to adopt advances like AI and blockchain, respondents believe emerging technologies will rise in importance over the next two years.
Logistics is reaching a tipping point for accelerated adoption of cloud solutions and emerging technologies. With customer satisfaction and logistics execution pressures mounting, the limitations of on-premise solutions and manual approaches are becoming increasingly evident.
Supply chain professionals recognize they must control costs, improve efficiencies, and achieve high levels of customer service, and they know their current capabilities can be a hindrance in realizing those goals. Many are recognizing the value of cloud-based logistics solutions as a means to improve performance, gain real-time visibility, and respond to market changes with speed and agility.
