The summit, moderated by Thomas W. Derry and Mark Millar elaborated to delegates on insights into the next-generation supply chains in the new normal.
One of the speakers indicated that FMCG manufacturers need to be transformed through supply chain for new growth in an omni-channel world, since supply chain structures which were built around solutions five to ten years ago seem inappropriate now.
"We should keep moving fast, or we will be left behind. Involving customer expectations and needs into supply chain designs becomes highest priority to us," he said. "As we all know, Tech innovation leads to brighter future. Social media such as Facebook, online shopping and coupons through mobile and online channels are having the most significant impact on our businesses."
