Shortages in supply and disruptions in the logistics chain are a tale as old as time. And while there are few precedents in this period of uncertainty, the basics remain the same: By adopting guidance that pacesetters use to navigate other forms of disruption, you can confidently lead your supply chain through change, now and in the future.
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.

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.
