Posted by Julia Gorman on Tue, Jan, 16 2018 @ 3:22 PM


As AI and advanced robotics become a tangible reality, the future of supply chains is put into question. Technology is on the cusp of dramatic changes that will transform the way we conduct global trade.

Amber Road addresses digitization as a critical first step to a future oriented global supply chain. The old way of doing business by fax, email and phone are no longer adequate in today’s fast-moving world. Although we’re operating in present-day, it’s important to prepare and adjust your supply chain and global operations for the future.

Amber Road is thrilled to be sponsoring and speaking at the APICS Professional Development Series in St. Louis on Thursday, January 18th. Suzanne Richer, Director of Trade Advisory Practice at Amber Road, is the event’s featured speaker. Richer will explore, ‘Trends in Global Supply Chains: Planning for 2020 and Beyond.’ 

The session abstract is as follows:

Join us to explore what the future supply chain will look like, and how today’s trends and best practices are shaping companies today. We’ll bring light to how supply chains are being shaped through technology, robotics and AI.
