Supply chain sourcing for business continuity

The right sourcing strategy is a crucial element for building a dynamic supply chain. The ability to mitigate risks and respond with speed and agility enables businesses to have a competitive edge. This includes devising strategies that incorporate the demand chain, network design, inventory visibility, and business continuity. A synergy of all these is mandatory for any business to navigate its way around market and demand fluctuations.

The changing shape of E-commerce Logistics

With millions of consumers switching online amidst stay-at-home measures and the forced closure of non-essential stores, lifestyle companies have had to pivot their logistics to meet the extraordinary rise in e-commerce demand. However, the impact of COVID-19 has made e-commerce logistics more complex than ever before with even the most established online lifestyle companies being pushed to the limit.

In this report that you can get access to below, we examine COVID-19’s impact on e-commerce logistics and interview Martin Holme, Maersk Global Head of Supply Chain Management and E-commerce Logistics and Christoph Stork, Maersk Global Managing Director of E-commerce Logistics to explore what it means for supply chains now, and in the future.
