If you read our blog with any regularity you've probably noticed that we often share and comment on the musings of Adrian Gonzalez of Talking Logistics on here. This week MP Objects CEO, Martin Verwijmeren, along with Geodis VP of Supply Chain, Eric St. Amand, were guests on his video show.
This episode, entitled Enabling Agility and Flexibility in Global Supply Chains, discussed the need for growth-minded businesses to deliver on both operational excellence and customer intimacy rather than specializing in one over the other, as has been customary in the past.
Eric and Martin shared some of the key supply chain challenges that Geodis and MP Objects customers are facing today. They discussed the increasingly complex and sophisticated expectations of end-customers as a big driver of this new normal, and the role that strategic logistics and technology partners are playing in meeting these demands in addition to unlocking the value in legacy technology stacks, and enabling end-to-end supply chain visibility and control.
In the excerpt below, Martin and Adrian discuss some of the key attributes to look for in supply chain software when you're seeking to improve visibility and agility in your system.
