The Future Supply Chain: Supply Chain Transformation through Digital Disruptive Technologies


The influx of disruptive digital technologies and the COVID-19 pandemic have radically transmuted the ways supply chains are being managed. This new normal requires supply chains to be more resilient, agile, and responsive to market needs. Likewise, it also demands greater visibility, traceability, and connectedness of a firm’s supply chain not only within a firm but also with its upstream and downstream partners. These challenges can only be addressed through transforming each sphere of the supply chain, from planning to production and delivery, along the lines of a fully integrated end-to-end digital supply chain.

This 02 days workshop will explain to the participants various digital technologies that can play an instrumental role in building an end-to-end digital supply chain. The workshop will also help understand as to how adopting digital technologies in the supply chain can uplift the performance of a supply chain.
