Over 60 per cent of consumers want greater flexibility for deliveries, while still being fast, but how is tech helping to improve efficiency and sustainability?
The Innovating the Supply Chain special report, published in The Times, explores how the industry is tackling its biggest concerns from sustainability to talent recruitment. It examines why end-to-end autonomy may not always be desirable and five leading examples of sustainable practice in the supply chain.
It also looks at how lack of awareness, diversity issues, and working patterns are contributing factors holding the supply chain industry back in employee recruitment and retention. Also featured is an infographic looking at consumer delivery demands for online shopping and how technology can make the process more seamless, efficient and within budget.
