As supply chain executives look towards the future, they are faced with a turbulent sea of geopolitical and environmental complications. With current events such as Brexit and USMCA creating uncertainty in global supply chain strategies, executives need to evaluate every opportunity to improve their long term supply chain strategies.
Ty Bordner, SVP of Marketing & Business Development at Amber Road, and Adrian Gonzalez, the current host and founder of Talking Logistics, discuss this during their 28 minute video interview, From Purchase Order to the Last Customs Mile: Streamlining and Automating the Global Supply Chain. They also explore the current global trade environment and trends that companies are facing, and where supply chain technology will be headed in the future.
