Maersk encourages just-in-case supply chain model at CSCMP event
Florham Park, NJ – The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) held their 32nd Annual State of Logistics Report virtual presentation on June 24, 2021 with supply chain executives from Maersk, Nordstrom, Penske Logistics, Kearney, Norfolk Southern and IHS Markit participating in a panel that discussed the major forces shaping logistics in the pandemic and post-pandemic world.
The 73 page report, authored by Kearney, entitled “Change of plans” captures the wild ride of 2020 and the conditions ahead that require logisticians to exercise even greater nimbleness and adaptability – hence the report name “Change of plans.”
Just-in-time is not sustainable these days. Just-in-case supply chain models with inventory buffer ensure sales demand can be fulfilled.
Customers are trusting us with a wider part of their supply chain to focus more on shipment level performance instead of container level.
Established in 1963, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals is an organization whose mission is “to advance the supply chain profession by connecting, educating and developing the world’s supply chain management professionals throughout their careers.”
