Moving from faster prediction to faster response in FMCG supply chains
Fast-moving consumer goods—at least some of them—have become emblematic for 2020.
If there was ever any doubt about the importance of resilient supply chains in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector, one need only recall the expanse of empty shelves that had once held toilet paper or pasta at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
