Over the past few years, as supply chains have grown in scale and complexity, so has the logistics sourcing process. Mature sourcing organizations, which have been doing traditional sourcing and category management, are starting to plateau in terms of savings and impact to their organizations, yet each year are faced with increasing savings mandates and pressure to improve performance.
Is the traditional approach to logistics sourcing, and the tools companies have used, no longer adequate in today’s more complex and dynamic business environment? What is the role of optimization technology, and what capabilities are the most important? What data is required, where does it come from, and how do you make sure it’s timely and accurate? How are companies achieving better outcomes by using data-driven optimization?
Kristie Beck, Vice President of Product Management at Elemica, addresses those questions and more in this timely and informative episode. After watching, post a question or comment for Kristie and keep the conversation going!
