The complex system of supply chain management is in the midst of a transformational digital ecosystem change. Advances in technology, shifts in consumer behavior and the “Amazon effect” have all drastically altered the logistics of supply; changing the way we buy, sell, and transport products. The green industry faces unique challenges when it comes to shipping and logistics and understanding the factors that will impact supply now is essential to keeping up with the demands of the future. In this presentation, Dave Malenfant will discuss the trends that he’s observed over his 30-year career, predict the future of supply chain management, and provide insight as to how you can prepare your business for the challenges ahead.
