1043: Aligning the Supply Chain In The Age Of The Delivery Economy
As consumers, we have an insatiable desire for instant gratification. Any book, TV show, movie, or album that pops in your head can be on your device in seconds. You can grab a date on Tinder, meal on OpenTable, flight to Paris, hotel room all using the smartphone. But as a business, how can you meet these rising expectations?
Supply chain professionals are feeling the pressure of customer demands for faster, cost-effective, and more transparent delivery. On today's podcast, I want to explore the very real pressures that are preventing supply chain professionals from meeting the expectations and demands of today's consumers.
A recent study called the "Delivery Economy Uncovering Misalignment In the Supply Chain" by project44 revealed that 73% of supply chain professionals are pressured to improve and expand delivery capabilities, requiring improved collaboration across stakeholders. I felt it was a topic I had to learn more about.
project44 CEO Jett McCandless joins me on the podcast and shares how he has been creating a digital infrastructure to eliminate inefficiencies. As project44's founder and CEO, I also learn how he has seen the problems in the logistics and delivery space firsthand every day for 20 years.
