Foodborne illnesses can spread quickly. A recent example is that of a batch of listeria-contaminated eggs causing one death and seven reported infections across five states. In many ways, the world of food supply chains is encapsulated in this tragedy. The contamination occurred in a single facility in Gainesville, Georgia, but resulted in products from more than 30 brands being pulled from the shelves and recalled. Grocery chains affected included Trader Joe’s, Costco, Lidl, Walmart and Kroger. Download this report today on how technology will boost transparency in food distribution.
The world is changing, yet planners are still using Excel to consolidate their plans. They’re also stuck in systems with planning fundamentals that are siloed, where each stage of supply and demand happens in linear sequence across independent functions.
Companies have spent millions on multiple ERP instances and bolted-on planning modules, and everyone from planners to executives are feeling the pain:
Planners are frustrated and using spreadsheets to consolidate plans that are outdated before they’re complete.
IT is tired of dealing with the ongoing integration and connection issues across multiple systems.
Executives are upset about making big investments that yield only small results.
In this Aberdeen research report, learn why a siloed approach to planning can’t deliver on today’s expectations and how a modern concurrent planning approach is the answer to today’s supply chain challenges.
The nature of managing a business on a global scale is undergoing fundamental change, driven by the expectations of the consumer, and it’s up to the world’s supply chains to keep up. The slow, siloed, sequential planning techniques of the past are no match for today’s fast-paced reality. That’s why it’s time to rethink supply chain planning and look to a different approach. We call it concurrent planning.
In this guide, supply chain industry experts take a deeper dive into this technique, covering topics such as:
Why concurrency is essential for today’s complex global networks
What concurrent planning is and the technology powering it
How a leading components supplier is leveraging concurrency for exceptional results
Four steps to enabling concurrent planning in your organization
Looking ahead: Applying artificial intelligence and machine learning to supply chains
If you're stuck in a siloed planning environment, where you (im)patiently wait for the next monthly planning meeting to roll around, your best laid supply chain plans will likely be out of date before they see the light of day.
There is a better way to manage your supply chain. A stress-free way to make decisions to create better outcomes for you, your company, manufacturers and suppliers, and most importantly, your customers.
Download this eBook to discover the modern alternative to siloed planning that brings all of your supply chain data, people and processes together in a concurrent planning environment. You’ll also find out what steps you and your organization can take to get there.

Industry 5.0 — the fifth industrial revolution — places workers in the middle of the technological advancements occurring throughout the supply chain. While Industry 4.0 focused on the internet of things (IoT) and interconnectedness, the real value comes from putting workers in the middle of these technological evolutions.
By keeping workers at the center of the conversation, Industry 5.0 enables strong collaborative efforts between humans and robots, provides the foundation for the rise of the worker-centric DC, and ultimately results in a happier, more productive workforce.
In this live, interactive webinar, James Hendrickson, director of product & offering management, Honeywell Safety & Productivity Solutions, will explore:
How workercentric solutions accelerate DC productivity
Why technology in the DC will propel tomorrow’s mobile workers
The trends and investments that can boost the performance of your DC operations

Meeting customer demands for free and fast shipping, whether B2B, B2C, or B2B2C is driving the increase in parcel volume and the expansion of delivery choices. Companies are struggling to manage the shift from a centralized fulfillment model to a more decentralized model that emphasizes shipping from inventory sources (stores, manufacturers and other suppliers) in closer proximity to end consumers. Merchants now need to think differently about how to successfully manage omnichannel parcel and LTL strategies.
Getting your omnichannel shipping strategy right means improved customer service, shorter distances to the customer, increased speed of delivery, and reduced cost.
Please join us to discuss tips on implementing an effective omnichannel shipping strategy that incorporates parcel and LTL and a broad, diverse range of carriers.
In this 30-minute webinar you will learn:
Current omnichannel fulfillment trends and market data points
Challenges and critical issues facing logistics managers
What the emerging omni-channel transportation model looks like
Summary of benefits and takeaways
