Rick Blasgen hosts Salim Shaikh: Digital Transformation Executive – Auto / Industrial, Blue Yonder and Ehap Sabri, Ph.D. | Director | Operations Advisory, KPMG LLP.

Topic: How COVID-19 is Transforming Automotive and Industrial Supply Chains Organizations need to explore deployment of supply chain technologies—such as transportation management systems, warehouse management systems, robotics and autonomous materials movement—to decrease worker density throughout their operations. As finite labor in the warehouses are stretched because of constrained resources, organizations need to look into improving throughput with lower headcount. Automation will be key to drive throughput acceleration and labor resiliency.

Organizations that will emerge the strongest post-COVID-19 will be the ones that can see the current emergency as an opportunity to overhaul their supply chains and enable the strategies outlined above. Although the future is uncertain and tomorrow’s disruption is already brewing, chance favors the prepared.

Whether you are facing COVID-19, trade wars, recessions, natural disasters, border issues, or some other as yet unidentified disruption, supply chains still need to roll on and if you don’t shift and adjust with the landscape, you will wither and someone else will fill the void.

Participants must be members of either CSCMP or NASSTRAC to participate. Register for the series to participate and to access recordings if you are not available to attend at the scheduled time.
