Supply Chain

As supply chains become more fragmented, dispersed, and complex, professionals who can create clarity from chaos are in high demand.

Supply chain is a vital part in the success of every business - understanding, predicting and responding effectively to the trends and challenges facing your industry sector is key in helping your organisation succeed. Like all sectors, supply chain has a number of constantly changing hurdles to manoeuvre - according to German logistics giant DHL, “Growing consumerism, blurring sector boundaries, demanding emerging markets, and the increasing need for lean, risk-controlled approaches in complex marketplaces are today’s major supply chain drivers.”

Artificial intelligence (AI), digitalisation and transparency- all topics of concern as supply chain is rapidly being disrupted by technological and social changes. Companies are under increasing demand to respond to the pressure of what’s become known as the ‘Amazon Effect’ - where the goliath is raising expectations on how quickly products can be delivered and how cheaply.

Supply chain leaders of the future will also be faced with the task of harnessing the power of ‘big data’ - as recently as 2017, a typical supply chain accessed 50 times more data than five years earlier. Yet, less than a quarter of this data is being analysed in order to understand and predict how external factors affect supply chains in real time - from labour shortages and adverse weather conditions to political unrest and spikes in demand, ‘big data’ can analyse these to maximise operational efficiency and gain a competitive advantage.

Market growth in the supply chain area will be accelerated by the need to improve data rates and speeds, the need to improve supply efficiency, the emergence of (AI) and machine learning for the supply chain management. DHL believes “Demand for supply chain talent is at an all-time high, as more and more companies have recognised how important supply chain management is to their success” - the future looks bright for employees in the sector.

Our expert consultants located are specialists in their markets, recruiting top talent for leading organisations in the supply chain sector throughout Germany and Europe.
