Finance and supply chain: These two essential business functions speak different languages and live in different worlds. Both contribute mightily to the success and the profitability of their companies, in their own ways. Manufacturers need to get them to synchronize if they are to survive and succeed — and to achieve the agility and the resilience everyone strives for coming out of the pandemic crisis.
In the current retail environment, supply chain reliability reigns supreme. Customers and stores alike depend on their supply chains to deliver the right products, in the right quantities, to the right place, and at the right time.
Challenge: A global manufacturer has been evolving from a logistics culture to global supply-chain culture. Due to fast-changing regulations and market expectations, the ability to anticipate customers’ requirements has become strategic. Now the entire supply chain must be ready to meet their needs.

This year has been transformational for supply chains. Many topics that were top of mind yesterday have now been almost forgotten due to rapidly changing priorities. One topic, however, remains constant: sustainability.
Some of the world's largest and most innovative companies embrace sustainability and corporate responsibility across their organizations and value chains. But companies often measure and manage their sustainability performance with – at best – inaccurate data. This means that any improvement may be a statistical artifact.
Join AWS, HERE Technologies and our guest speaker from Bosch to discover how real-time data and location technology can help you build a more sustainable and efficient supply chain.
Watch the webinar and learn how to:
1) Leverage reliable data to measure and improve your CO2 footprint
2) Use the power of location to do better what-if analyses
3) Track the performance of your logistics vendors to drive SLA improvement.
