Perfect delivery – order orchestration & adaptive logistics
(for current practitioners only)
The global pandemic has expedited the evolution of business models especially direct to consumer and highlighted the impact of interruptions on service and critical supply levels, in addition to impacts from climate change, social unrest, cyber and physical attacks on assets. Brexit adds to the volatility. To manage these risks and retain customers' trust, supply chain practitioners need greater visibility and traceability to profitably and promptly satisfy demand irrespective of channel and proactively manage incidents. This discussion will explore:
How can a perfect delivery digitalisation roadmap address: strategic drivers? (cost, customer experience, compliance, carbon footprint and human capital) tactical drivers (business model evolution, Brexit, pandemic-driven volatility)  What should digitalised perfect delivery look like? Orchestration - Simplify ordering across channels, ensure rapid delivery and excellent customer service to compete effectively Logistics - Plan and adapt to disruptions and execute to exceed expectations. Retaining customers' trust with proactive advice on changes to ETAs (Estimated Time of Arrival) leveraging AI and incorporating external data e.g. incidents such as port closures etc. IoT for fleet monitoring, quality assurance and near real-time response Transport Orchestration to deliver on your responsibility for the shipments irrespective of the extent of outsourcing to 3PLs How & where to start? Identifying best value initiatives SaaS / cloud as the foundation Frameworks for evaluating potential RoI Who needs to be on board? Hosted by Intent

The Covid experience has underlined the importance of agility and being able to adapt to changing circumstances. In many cases, existing S&OP / IBP processes have struggled with a much higher demand for scenarios, cycles having to begin before the previous cycle is finished and a highly unusual operating context requiring decisions to be escalated or reviewed more frequently.
How has a concurrent (as opposed to linear or sequential) planning approach helped and what was the journey to from business case to implementation?
