Globalisation has had a major impact on supply chains in recent years. While it has allowed an increasing number of businesses to become more competitive in a wider variety of markets, it has also increased the complexity of organisation’s supply chains.

As businesses are required to adapt to increasing consumer demands, including lower costs and quicker lead times, supply chain teams are often tasked with driving improvements and efficiencies to meet these needs, while managing costs and risks effectively. Due to the cross-functional nature of supply chain teams, this can often be a challenging undertaking for teams to co-ordinate and implement while, effectively managing the day-to-day movement of goods from point of manufacture to point of final sale.
