End-to-end supply chain visibility
The current state of play for supply chains is increasingly impacted by disruptive events and this is causing far reaching consequences for businesses and consumers. The standard at the moment is that retailers can see their tier one suppliers, but the further down a supply chain that a supplier is, the less likely that the brand or retailer has visibility – and so, any challenges caused by tier 2,3 and 4 suppliers can cause unexpected disruption.
Digital tools and innovations offer a new vision of supply chains. One with visibility across the whole chain, where suppliers, manufacturers and retailers collaborate to build and sustain more dynamic, responsive supply chains. The Hub will be supporting activity in this area, testing, supporting and building fully networked ecosystems.
