Find me on:

Each week, we look to write and share the best, most-up-date content on supply chain orchestration, logistics innovation and industry news. To this goal, here are the 5 articles that we liked the most from the past week to start your work week off right. I'd also suggest you read the wrap-ups from All Things Supply Chain, Talking Logistics and Logistics Viewpoints.

This week we're talking about control towers, transportation management, omnichannel, supplier collaboration and digital supply chains. Enjoy!

Well worth a read on modern supply chain control towers and what to look for when evaluating potential options.

Like the real world examples on emerging trends on better ways to do transportation management.

Good reminder on the growing importance of omnichannel execution for retail brands. Similar concepts are being adopted in B2B when it comes to inventory optimization.


Supply Chain is in Fashion due to Digitization by MH&L (@MHLEditor)

Great read on the impact of digitization that is affecting supply chain. Our supply chains are increasingly becoming multi-enterprise and multi-party and being able to manage and orchestrate these parties to exceed customer service levels is increasingly complex.
